Schuey breaks Imola lap record...uh oh, or ,so what?

I've rwad this morning that Schu smashed the Imola lap record late yesterday posting a 1m 20's something or other.

DC was 2nd quickest well over a second off, but in turn only couple 10ths ahead of Monster.

What does this mean?

During off season/testing, Ferrari not hitherto thought to have advantage with 2003 or new car and Schu and other Ferrari team members said they feared Williams and Renault.

Did they send out Schu on ultra low fuel or have they been keeping quiet about it's potential deliberately up until now?

Rubinho actually quite bullish about his chances and those of the new car, however he was behind the Mclaren and Williams yesterday.

I still believe a Williams will win it this year, prob JPM and Ferrari will only be consistently competitive if Bridgstone have developed a decent dry tyre that can cope with heat.

What can we make of all this folks, i really don't wanna see thge Red cars winning again!!

Ferrari would be worried if it didn't break the record to be honest.

Yeah, sounds about right, but isn't that the case when they're at Fiorano?!!

Schu actually did mid 1m 19's, my mistake!

Yes Splatz agreed!

I'm hoping that the time was set on low fuel as a last ditch attempt to instill some confidence in the team pre Melbourne and to at least try and worry the others!

Also as it was cold weather at Imola it would suit Bridgestone tyres more than Michelins, therefore having abearing on the times perhaps?

Well i certainly hope not Smokey!!

it could be another typical case of off season baloney? We won't know for sure until next weekend, but i wouldn't have thought that Ferrari will be far off whatever the case?

Well it can't be a measurement, but as the team has assured the continuity, we can expect a tough fight this season.

Confirmed. It was on low fuel load, I'm 100% sure of that. Then again, EVERY track record is set on low fuel load, qual trims.

Hahah..i find it amusing how cynical people are towards "Ferrari breaks record..big deal..".

I agree that testings are pretty much inaccurate comparison, and that teams play mind games... but the desires of some to paint Ferrari as a "glory grabber" in pre-season is funny.

When's the last time Ferrari din't break records? Hmm...last check, Williams and Mclarens broke lap records at pre-season testings every year recently too. And what happened? They screwed up 02, then again struggled in 03. Hmmm...

i never find the trend of breaking lap records a problem. Honestly, any team should really be worried if they can't easily make their new cars go faster than that of the previous years. Those millions of bucks HAD to go somewhere

Think about it,if they continue to knock off 1 second a lap every year(for a 1m 20sec lap),in 80 years time when they test,the front of the car will crash into the back of the car as it leaves the start line.
