    Allison did that last year and was exposed by Whiting lol. This year secrets are deeper ;)

    I think C4 times are more presentative than C5, as quoted by Pirelli the C5 hardly lasts 1 hot lap on Barcelona. So 1.17.2 on C2 is around 16.0 on C4, 16.7 on C3 around 16.1 on C4.
    Around .16 - .16.1 on C4 seems to be the time to beat right now

    Thoughts?

    merc are at most 0.2s down in testing, looking at speed traps, bottas was not near *honda or ferrari's so they still sandbagging more, hamilton crying again so all the glory will be on him or the "super turnabout" in this short week when they end up 1s ahead at melbourne, pretty much even stevens in my eyes.


    Happy seb got decent amount of laps and vettel and leclerc showing close times which means setup works for both

    The Mercedes engineers correct their superstar. "In our opinion, Ferrari is two to three tenths faster than we are, the times are just representative." Hamilton will use the free time after the test drives for travel. The title holder rests in the plane. First, he moves to Fashion Week in Paris, then to the Mercedes factory after Brackley and then to the MotoGP race in Qatar.

    Is there any contest for the most pessimistic???!!!!!
    Dont tell me what could happen, I as everybody, know that yes there is a possiblity that Merc hiding or trying to find their sweet spot. BUT man you are something else. EVERY single time something good happen to us you come up and say the opposite thing and praise the Mercs.
    It is really getting tired reading your posts.

    thats why mercedes lie and hype ferrari as the best car all the time, so all eyes, all inquiries and all pressure lands on us, when they brought there extremely useful rim tyres they downplayed everything yet the race they took it off they lost a lot of pace, they already repeating it this year, all eyes and fia will be harsh on everything we do to see if theres a "trick" with the FW or somewhere else while they can develop freely

    On F1technical I saw someone posting a suggestion it might be the old diffusor (we saw the structure last week) hence Gasley wrecked the new one.

    From the gallery on AMUS it looks like we didnt run at all on those Merc rim tyres today, anybody remember seeing pics of leclerc using them yesterday?

    From earlier report:

    That was a strong round from Vettel on the medium-hard Pirelli (C3). Then he travels the 16 corners in 1: 16.7 minutes. If you subtract now the tire disadvantage, it lands in the high 1: 15 range. - AMUS

    I still think Pirelli is off with there estimations, like someone said earlier c5 tyre is not made for this track, it might be faster early on in the lap but before the lap ends its already lost too much performance, maybe c4 more accurate. but the thought that seb might be sandbagging even little is a good thing

    Binotto: "I would like a more reliable car. Betting on us in Melbourne?
    No, I never bet ... but rather than betting on another team, I would bet on us."

    #F1Testing


    Binotto: "The structure has not changed much. No major changes. I'm a bit like a conductor. I direct the many technicians and then they have to do the job. We must not be on the level of others, but be the best."

    Apart from mercs, ferrari & RB. Mid-field teams seems to be pretty tight.
    Alfa vs Haas vs Renault vs RP. Then last spot Williams vs McLaren vs TR.
