Pirelli asked them to bring some more downforce. 20 "somethings" was mentioned in the press. Whether the teams have responded is yet to be seen.

Rosberg's probably still too drunk to drive! :lol:

Or maybe Hamilton has decided to start next season now. As he hates testing that would be a big change.

yet the actual running surface making contact doesnt really seem all that different to this years, look at all the shiny parts of the running area of the tire still.

A small improvement regarding the look. Big price to pay regarding the weight, the drag, the racing...

And it seems only the Merc FW has a 2017 width .

At least these engines make not such a big noise. But Nico´s hangover must be epic. :mrgreen:

As far as I know it was already decided that the non-WC driver was going to run during this morning.

Is that a 2017 rear wing on the Ferrari? Thought 2017 parts weren't allowed for tyre tests...

It would seem Pirelli didn't know.
