Testing their new F1 car at Barcelona according to rumours!


Pat Fry on an interview in Marca said that Alonso will be focusing on long runs also few new updates will be tested.
He said too that they are were they were expected to be after Jerez, no correlation problems with wind tunnel.
So it looks optimistic.

P.S. Sorry they don't have the interview on the english version but you can translate with google translate

Thanks a lot. It looks like there are still setting the car for Alonso, just some short runs, almost no times.

Finialy at least a little bit better time - 1:24.162 (29)

Not much running from Mclaren or Mercedes today. Yet they have set fast times. Whats the logic in not maximizing track time?

EDIT: and there goes Perez setting fastest time of the day.. 1:24.124

That last run for McLaren was pretty impressive. 4 consecutive fast laps 3 in the 1:25's and one 1:24.

AMuS is telling us that Mercedes is using the 1h break for checking the gearbox. there is a problem with it. Thats the reason why they stay in pits.

<sarcasm> BREAKING NEWS . Mercedes found the perfect way for spending 4 testing days. Two without driving and two with excessive pain in the ass for their drivers and lots of laps. So this will be the plan until the First race. </sarcasm>
