That "TT" wing the Mercedes is running sure looks out of place. 2017 cars are stating to look more odd by the day.

Here we go again:

22:26 Our rough calculations suggest that if Hamilton had matched his previous best through sector three on that first quick attempt, he would have done a 1m21.2s.

22:26 Another purple time through sector one for the Briton, a bit more like it that time as he ends up two tenths shy of his best.



22:23 Hamilton teased us there with two purple sectors, but he drops over four seconds in the final sector. http://www.autosport.com/live/commen...1-test-day-two

Raikkonen 32nd fastest with 1:22.831 or 1.631 secs off Merc pace. Hopefully all in tyres, Soft v Medium ?

Really hope Honda get on top of everything quickly. Running around in safe mode / breaking down on both days is a little bit concerning...

Some chatter on social media saying that problem may require a redesign of the oil tank and a possible knock on effect of that on other parts of the car - speculation, but who knows - one thing is for sure, Mercedes it isn't.

Williams won't run again today. I expected $troll to provide lots of work for the team in terms of parts but not this soon.

I keep glancing the (non) action at Barcelona and have an overwhelming vision in my head of Ron Dennis smiling whilst he pushes pins into a model of the new McLaren...

yeah not a great first outing for Stroll but at the same time it seemed like a fairly ordinary, if not minor, type of off.

so for me its a bit surprising that the damage was such that Williams had to suspend running in order to send the composite parts back to their factory.

just speculating, but i wonder if they were surprised by the level of damage caused and/or needed to send the broken bits back to the factory for more extensive analysis...hoping its just precautionary.

They probably didn't have any spares - it could be something relatively minor that got broken but if they didn't have another one with them then it's game over until a new one is made and flown out. I guess at this stage if the season the parts are still some way away from what will be on the car at the first race so there isn't a stockpile of spares.

If you're testing wing 'a' and the designers are already working on wings 'b' and 'c' then if you break wing 'a' you probably don't have another one of those as you weren't planning on using it long term. So as soon as you break wing 'a' you either get the composite guys to knock up another and fly it out or push to get wing 'b' finished and fly that out.

true true...still though it seems odd to not have a replacement front wing. or rather seems like a small team problem.

but then again, i dont actually know how extensive the damage was and what needed replacing.

The wing was only an example - it could be anything! At this stage spares for everything will be limited.

Two years ago it seemed to take them 2 races to make a wing......

Kimi on top after day 2 so thats got to be seen as encouraging.

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/b...ay-two-878253/

less encouraging is the number of laps the two Merc drivers have put down which is something close to 100 more laps then Ferrari...maybe something to be said for the split day approach.
