  • Or maybe Paddy and the crew just can't give up the long Sunday Lunch habit.  :tease:

    I'll be waiting to see if them 3/4 width front wings on the Alfa make it onto track in earnest.

  • That would be an epic red herring from Ferrari Alfa Romeo if the 3/4 wing was not used in earnest!

  • Ahhh!!!!

    So, much the same looking as 2018 (at a glance of course, where fine detail is irrelevant in my wee car designs).

    You're a LEGEND Luke!!  :good: :good: :good: *high fives*

    See you tomorrow,
    Cal :)

  • OH NO! Williams really in trouble, they'll probably miss day 2 of testing as well.  :swoon:

    Maybe someone put Rexona in the tank instead of Rokit fuel.  :D

  • Here's the times from first days testing with tyres best lap set on and number of laps.

    Puts a bit more perspective on just the raw times.

  • No, nothing happened today John.  Testing doesn't start until Wednesday morning, at the earliest.  At least, that's what I've heard!

  • Kimi thinks ALFA are moving ahead

    It would make for a great story if Kimi and Alfa find a satisfying level of success - it would be a good thing for neutral fans and more so, a great thing for F1.

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)
