I think you're probably rather premature to jump on the car looking mighty – the car has always looked good in high temps, and slow speed.

Having taken 4 poles out of the 5 last races i´d say they have solved their issues on qualifying pace.
race pace was never really an issue.

The RB8 did look mighty in Valencia. But as you say, I think it's a little premature to say they're going to stay there or continue said superior pace. They were mighty in Bahrain too, and kind of faded away just a bit. I think Silverstone with it's much cooler weather & completely different track characteristics will give us a better idea exactly where RB stand. The next few races really.
It is a little worrying in the last two Quali sessions RB pulls out a good gap out of nowhere in Quali. Hard to put it down to just the updates too because of Canada. I think the hotter weather definitely helps them but we'll know more in just under 2 weeks.

I still think Mclaren will take pole but i think will be much closer then we think.

At :37 & :53 you can hear the off throttle of the RB8. I'm aware it's legal to a certain extent, but RB have always done it better than anyone else. Plus who's to say they haven't found something the rest don't know about yet.

I definately noticed it during the friday and saturday coverage. Check 1:15 as Seb approaches the last corner during Q3 run.

I'm actually pretty sure you can also hear a lighter (sounding) version of it in Alonso's Ferrari at 2:25 in your video.

Vettel said they found grip "everywhere" with the new package which should explain his takeoff in Valencia.
I think they might be quite strong in Silverstone as well.

I just found me :P

Worth looking here - only took me 30 minutes. I think the photo's a repeated to cover the car ?
