The FW35 Williams on its launch day came out of the box setting fastest lap after lap! The last fast lap was 1:27.203 and compared to the track record is only 6 seconds off! Would be great if someone has last years Barcelona numbers to compare.

autosportlive Rosberg sets the fast time so far with a 1m25.585s. #F1

Still 3.5 seconds to find to match last years pace.

The cars are barely working right now, in terms of F1 speed anyway.

Edit:
autosportlive And faster again from Mercedes as Rosberg does a 1m24.520s, fastest so far by 2.4s. #F1
