I will vouch that Mercedes will have full tanks and using less sets of tyres than the opposition, Just as at the previous test.
I will find the Auto Motor und Sport article on Valencia's test. Mercedes on the face of it looked very average, but with closer inspection every timed run they had was with ful tanks and used tyres. With this in mind, its actually not bad :wink:

Sorry, other than insider information, how would anyone know what fuel program another team is running on?

If you are referring to the Amus article JET was talking about, why are you ruling this out?

Laughter is the best policy :)

Seems like testing is a fairly quite affair today. People just getting on with stuff, nowt much of relevance appears to be going on...

Seesm like Brawn was right when he said not to expect much from the first 2 tests.
