Wouldn't we be know by now if there were new parts?
I didn't see any new parts in FP1. They did change the nose during the session, don't know why (both new spec).
I was intrigued by that too. Why change the nose with a new one of same spec.
Maybe a sensor was mounted inside the nose openings of the 2nd nose?

Yep or maybe it's not exactly the same nose

For their fast times:
Mercs on S, Ferraris on SS, Max on M, Alonso on S, Vandoorne on M, Gro on S and Gasly on M. Fairly certain.

Best in FP2 so far is 300kph, by Vettel. Alonso’s best is 295. (Sector 2 speed trap)

Alonso has now hit 300kph as well in S2. Was complaining about the rear of the car though.

Stability problems ... hmm

Strangely that is good on the long run but it needs fixing here and there.

Strong wind is not good for first test with this spec .....
