Nick was spot on about RBR's pace and form during testing last year and reckon he shouldnt be wrong this year.

Notice he hints that the Torro Rosso looks quite fast.. :wink: I have done my analyses and this is the same conclusion I came to. Just need to place a few bets on it now.

Anyway, I wonder how Perez's time up to the second sector compares.

Autosport posted that his 3rd sector was 2 seconds faster than anybody else's.
So nothing magical IMO.

08:56 The timing system says Maldonado has stopped at Turn 11.

08:54 Red flag at Catalunya, several cars on track so not yet clear what's caused it.

08:54 The session has been stopped.
Horrible start

Outlap - 1:21.865 - 1:22.397 - 1:23.386 - 1:24.050 - 1:24.799 - Inlap

Vettel sets a lap record with first and second lap also quicker than anyone else. He is reported to be on hard tyres. Well done.
