Fair enough, Caterhams exhaust was banned so why shouldn't Williams'?

Damn! We all like Team Willy to do well. This might set them back a little.

yes but that is it, no pace in that 15 lap run, doing 1:29 is slower then marrusia, where is the pace? those tires are for crap. from my point of view mercedes just lost one set of tires and didnt gain nothing.


Where is this 15 lap run from the Marussia?


Perez did a 14 lap run and nico did a 15 lap run Nico did 1.26-29 perez did 1.26-30. So that run from nico wasnt so bad.

I think we're in for a exciting season of F1. The signs are good the pack is really closing. Can't wait for Melbourne. Hulkenberg on P1, Vettel P10 :lol: :lol: .

Holy --- those are fast – that's 4 laps in a row, consistently 1.5 seconds off last year's pole time.

Thats normal, these Pirelli's and the track are really punishing. A lot of corners so little time to cool the tyres.

That was on medium tyres, compare this to last RBR's run

Lotus didn't do longer runs today, but despite that all their runs show amazing consistency, there is no drop in performance over following lap.
