It seems like Pirelli spread out the tires more this time, the C2 seem to lack a lot of grip compared to C3.

Mountain US time, so just catching things now.

These cars do look lazy in the slow stuff and damn are they stiffly sprung. Even here they look like they’re driving on a wash board.

Is there a difference between the C2 and C2 experimental? Or is that one in the same?

Perez is averaging 0.146s deg on the C2 and 0.095 on the C1 per lap.
Honda!

That Turn 9/10 complex has been giving Norris and Stroll fits.

Alonso and Stroll actually racing in testing… That was interesting… If they would have touched though! A bit childish from both of them

Red Flag for Perez, all he had to do was use the brake pedal and he wouldnt have been stuck in the gravel #-o

Are the gear ratios the teams run in pre-season testing required to be the same as the one they will use during the season? I was under an impression that it's possible to use a completely different gear ratio in testing
No, Gear ratios will be fixed in Q for the first race. Until then they are free to change them.
I would like to see a paleontologist.

Indeed. I can’t believe it. Unless there was a technical issue this was absurdly bad.

All the cars look horrible to drive though to varying degrees, understeer in slow corners, oversteer on corner exit.
Yup. Pretty much all cars look slow, dull and lazy, especially from the onboard shots.

The visual of the cars is great but the porpoising thing and their lack of speed is letting me down a bit today, after watching the last 2 hours of the test.

Btw, George just bought a parcel of land, just before the back straight.

It's been suggested that Haas will be allowed to run on Sunday to make up for time lost in delivering the cars.
That would be great for them and Mick but I don´t see it happening, tbh. But Haas´/Dallara´s car seems rubbish, regardless.

If anybody missed watching anything today, don´t feel bad about it. Once you get to see the onboards, you won´t sustain the same excitement anymore
