I wondered that too. It would also give Sauber themselves more useful data from this test if they can try something they'll actually use in 2016. Otherwise it's just a tyre test for them.
Yes it would seem a bit like a waste, even though they might add on a few new bits and pieces.
If they run the 2016 PU it would provide an interesting benchmark.

Yeah, I can get to the timing screen (see last post on page 2 of this thread). But it's not updating the times. I have to navigate away from the Results and Standings section, then back, to get the screen to update.

So, now we have see almost every newcar (only Sauber to see), my opinion:

Best looking:
1-STR11, (Torro Rosso) even without livery!
2-W07 (Mercedes)
3-MP4-31 (Mclaren)
4-RB12 (Red Bull)
5-SF-16H (Ferrari)
6-VF-16 (Haas)
7-RS-16 (Renault)
8-FW-38 (Williams)
9-VJM-09 (Force India)
10-MRT05 (Manor)
11-Sauber... TBA

Any bets on first car to cause a red flag, and first driver to cause a red flag?

Honda (come on, we're all thinking it), and I think it's a toss-up between Celis and Sainz.

You say that, but I think for most of testing last year they actually caused zero red flags, of course, they also did the littlest running and had a tendency to break-down in the Pit Garage :lol:
