    Didn't seem like oil smoke to me. More like water vapor. Also, from the onboard video, engine sound was fine. Transmision sound, not so much.

    F1 2017's faster cars have seen new ultimate lap records set in both Melbourne and China this season.

    The time to beat this weekend: 1:29.493. That was set by Lewis Hamilton in qualifying last year.


    The fastest time in FP1 12 months ago was a 1:32.294 by Nico Rosberg.

    Are they just not going out because conditions now are not representative of race conditions?

    They're setting the car up. Vettel now at 1.32.697 and he had understeer and oversteer at the beggining of the second sector, then backed off and nursed it to over the finish line.

    blue smoke is usually associated with oil trouble which means there is engine problem.

    It is a good thing this session is not really representative othersise we would have been even more on the back foot with kimi's car issue

    I think it's not the race engine, might be the practice one which we used in testing. May b end of mileage.
