Cars are on track and conditions are cool (61F/16C) but sunny. Not sure anybody is going to be going for a time today, but tomorrow will bring rain so if we do see any fast times it will be today.

Looks like a lot of cars not making it out for the first session or there could be transponder issues?

Rebellion (1:39.164) and WTR (.496) in the 139s already. Last year's 24 fastest practice lap was the Delta Wing at 138.590 and fastest race lap (Pipo's) at a 1:39.192 looks like things are progressing well for this year.

Anyone concerned that Mazda were still working on both cars for the majority of FP1? New engine teething?

In december test they got low 1.37, so for qualy day I'm sure we will see 1.36

The track should be green and cold and there are lot of driver who need get used of the cars.

Just the usual unfortunately. Whilst the car is gorgeous and we all want it to do well, it is still the same team who manage to grab defeat from the jaws of victory at every opportunity.

hahaha never better said. It's very frustrating to be a Mazda's fan.

BTW the Ligier is reaching 193 mph of top speed, that's very close to the 199 that the Cadies got in december.

Haven't the engines been turned down since then? Gibson requested a slight detune for the 24 since it's the first race. I think we'd be best comparing current speeds.

I know we are early but I am starting to feel bad
for Mazda. They have got to get to the low 40's
before the end of the weekend.
