With such a short test, do you think that the teams will show more potential than usual or less? we may see more surprises than usual with this configuration.
The main thing is to ensure the PU installation is reliable and hasn't been adversely affected by the revisions made to the cooling system in favour of aero gains. That and to ensure the aero package figures meet those obtained from CFD and wind tunnel tests. Anything after that is a bonus and the teams are unlikely to spend too much time deliberately setting headline lap times - although the back markers might if they think it will garner exposure and thus possibilities of sponsorships. But the likes of Mercedes, RedBull, Ferrari and McLaren will just run their test cycles and, if they happen to show a good turn of pace whilst doing so then that will be a happy accident. More likely, they'll play with sector times to try to build a picture of their own performance without giving anything away.
