This is not only illegal but also laughably unsuitable for the real world. I.e. there are these little known concepts called "wind direction" and "turbulence".issues4 wrote:good stuff...

i dont know why, but some of these images and concepts makes that super leaned over front wing endplate look all the more sneaky...
Why would they want to compare themselves to anybody else at this phase? All the teams are doing their own stuff, and Mercedes has done everything that any other team has done in terms of getting to know the 2012 tyres, and the setup opportunities they provide in relation to last year, and the new car too. That is enough until the 21st, when they will put the car on track with a shakedown and a full test-day behind them, w/o teething problems, and knowing every bit as much about the new car as any other team, or maybe even a bit more. This all seems to have been a well thought over, extremely well organized project plan, which seems to have been carried out flawlessly. It is a little like sacrificing a a key piece in chess, only to get an advantage 3 moves later.gilgen wrote:Yeah, but they have nothing to compare themselves with.

It doesn't matter, as it's just a first run with the new car. Systemchecks, trying to get to know the car, verifying simulation data and so on. I don't think that you compare yourself with others (regarding laptimes) on a first run.gilgen wrote:Yeah, but they have nothing to compare themselves with.
