I'd say they were installation laps... or he's crashed it already.

Well, I think it's fair to assume the cars should be as fast now as they were then. Thus a 1.11.1 is achievable. They're all way off it at the moment.

EDIT: Rosberg to 1:18.228 - 9th lap.

He went out very early and the track is constantly improving. I suspect hs days work is done with just 15 laps. Perhaps Schumi will give the car a faster outing in the afternoon.

too early to tell, Rosberg is still conservative (I guess), Paffett is a test driver, and we don't know much about fuel loads or aero loads

The BMW Sauber guys were doing a 1:12.200 laps in 2008, so if you take the new regs into concideration. Id say that a low 1:13 lap will be the target, maybes a high 1:12 second lap may be posisble.

Rosberg has done another two stints and closed the gap to 0,455s. So far no incident with red flag has occurred. PDLR improved in the Sauber. At the moment only Rosberg on track.

What I dont understand is why they arnt all constantly on track.

I mean they have such limited testing you would expect them to use every second available.

There must be some periods of analysis and refit. Same as pre-race practise, if the cars just went round the whole time on the same setup, they wouldn't learn anything.

Track temperature is now falling and the conditions will not improve from here. I also do not understand why Schumacher is still not on track. Are they changing the car for him?

Perhaps he doesn't want to post a slower time than Rosberg? Could the worsening conditions mean all the teams will pack it in for today?
