Last year fastest testing time was 1 second slower than qualifying. Vettel improved by .7 seconds to end up one and a half tenths behind Hamilton. I wonder what kind of times we'll see the next 2 weeks. In the race sims 1:18's were possible, and the general pace was in the 22's and 21's.

My guess 19's are possible and the pace is in the 22's

110 sets of tyre for whole season and it is up to teams to choose how many of them will be used during testing( If I didn't understand wrong). There is a testing article formula1.com.

Thats still a huge amount when you consider they actually have only 273 for the full calander season of 21 races.

Wow...with 21 races the teams don't even have 5 sets of tyres for each race (taking the winter and summer tests into account)?
