Sorry to be dumb, what time does testing start? Websites say 7am, and googling the time in Bahrain it says it’s like 9am?? Am I missing something?
The time zone is the key... Which one are you in?

Last year, during pre-season tests, someone made an Excel table with all lap/sector times and maximum speeds. Should we expect something like that this year?

Any good websites to follow live testing? I used F1today in the past but doesn't seem to be having anything live this year

The last afternoon has all of the giants on track together. Hamilton, Verstappen, Alonso, Vettel, Ricciardo and Russell. I know they won't be racing, sadly, but I'll be nice to see those names on the sheets together. =D>
I am sure that makes Mazepin and Tsunoda feel much better to be in the "heavy weights" club instead of Schumacher and Gasly :D

Will this also give us a clue on who is the No 1 driver at Ferrari? I thought they already announced that Sainz will be driving last on Day 3

Yeah, so clearly so far noone is doing anything remotely like a representative run. Which makes sense, they have three days, they need to check it all works well and reliably. Maybe on Sunday we could expect some faster times.

I tell you what, the grid looks flipping fantastic this year. Even the Williams looks much better on track than in the renders. So good to see cars on track again!

I agree, cars look great. Only exception for me is Aston which looks too dark on camera on a sunny day. It will probably look black on a cloudy day. Could be easily confused for a Mercedes.

Was thinking the same thing. If only they had a nice bright neon green highlight on the car somewhere...
