Barcelona testing

Its early but...

Mercedes fastest on the softs. Ferrari on the mediums. Many laps put in. So far so good for these two.

Macaroons barely got a lap in before the Honda gave out. Red Bull managed 4. Ugly...

Williams solid with Massa - a good number of laps and a decent time.

Already Hammy is below his pole time of 2016. The cars are ugly, but fast.

Would it be OK for an F1 forum moderator to lose an 'L' out of the thread title, please?

early days indeed, but it gives me some measure of hope to see SV on the mediums so very close to LH's best lap on the softs and also to see Massa right up there too in terms of time and laps completed.

but no doubt by weeks end the Mercs will have crushed that hope!

whats the schedule of drivers? looking forward to seeing what kind of day Stroll can put in.

thanks been a while since we have seen a Canadian on the grid.

found a full list for the week.

interesting to see that Merc plans on having both drivers drive each day (AM/PM rotation)...i feel like thats a bit unusual.

Yes for sure! It will be interesting to see what he can do. His dad certainly invested a lot in his career.

Regarding the merc drivers both driving on the same day, and even alternating who goes first each day... Maybe they are going out of their way to appear as if they are not favouring either.

This was introduced by the team last year because Hamilton was not capable of completing a whole day's testing, so they had to get Rosberg in particular to do extra stints. Amazing that Rosberg was able to complete one and a half straight days testing on one occasion, but Hamilton struggled to just complete the other half day without whinging.

I think that it's because he can't bear to be apart from his two pooches for that long. They are the only ones that understand him fully, and can give him all the love that he craves.

the relationship between a man and his dog is a pretty important one...maybe LH will write a country song about his.

Mike does make a fair point about LH's commitment to testing (or lack thereof) but i was thinking it had either more to do with driver equality as you say or an uncertainty about how their drivers fitness would be affected by the faster cars (which i suppose could also be related to where LH and Bottas are in their training/fitness...but thats just speculation on my part).

I think Lewis like Kimi is just more interested in racing, can't blame them really you know they both get a feel for the car very quickly ...

When was the last time every team turned up on day one of testing ready to go?
I understand that with the major changes it is important to get miles but on past occasions big changes have been used as an excuse for not being ready.
Don't know why the complaints about looks. I reckon they are going to be a couple of seconds a lap more beautiful by season start.

If Mercedes turn the wick up I reckon we can see LH into the 1m 19's..or maybe a high 18, if they decide to show their hand...

Lap record is 1:21.670. Set in '09 by Raikkonen. We can safely say that will be broken today during day 2.

edit: Hamilton is almost there. 1:21.766!
