Caterham changing their penis to black, looks better with black rather than all green:
It appears as if Mercedes may face a slight disadvantage in Melbourne.
Is it a different wing to what they had at Bahrain and Jerez?
I wouldn't be too worried, the older wing is probably one from the second test and what not and the car was still fast then. They may also be underplaying their abilities, which is what I think is going on with them lately and there willingness to give out plenty of technical info.
They tested a few wings and we put a few of them up on the technical thread for F1, so it is probably from the testing this season, but not the final ultimate update they used at Bahrain.
Sounds like it was very different to what they used in testing.
FP1 is at 1:30 am UK time. It couldn't have been at a more enticing time for me to stay up and watch it.
Try living here and watching every other FP, Quali and GP...then we'll talk.
It's going to be a long day tomorrow by all accounts, I'll be up until around 4am writing reports.
I didn't think they seemed too bad?
EDIT: Rain forecast for Sunday. Remember that in F1 anything can happen, and it usually does!
Renault teams cleared to use full power:
Sorry, haven't been able to stop saying that since that bloody Jimmy Johnson advert.
In this case it should be boom, pistons.
There's always the occasional gag but 28 out of the 30 mins you see this:
Their answers didn't seem so bad though, and that's how I'D look if I had to sit and listen to those questions. Especially for five other people before me
But that's not how they usually look. Only after they've had a bad race, not before it.
They are all looking in the same place, I bet someone busted into the room butt naked.
Easy win for Vettel.
Weather update: today partly cloudy to sunny, high of 28degrees(88F)
Mercedes will be on top this weekend. Vettel tips them to win
they all look irritated to be honest even Magnussen, Massa and DR
Best joke I've read yet, keep up the good work.
It's the Age of Uncertainty. Everyone says that testing means nothing, but they usually have a pretty good idea of where they are by now. But this year, testing has been about getting laps in and understanding the engines - no-one has had any real chance to work on strategy of tyres or fuel consumption.
The informal interviews are much more relaxed. Unless you're Vettel. He looked rattled yesterday.
If the Caterham nose is now black shouldn't it be a couple of inches bigger?
Just over two hours until the green light for FP1, I'm as excited as I've ever been for the start of a season. I am going to be cream-crackered tomorrow though!
Going to be around St Kilda today. My guess is that's close enough to be able to hear them. Excited!
Shame I won't get any of the practice sessions in... but I'm there for Quali and Race!
Go on, it's only an hour and a half away
I know, but I am burnt out from working 12 hours a day, I need to rest so I am good for Sat/Sun!
So it's going to be green, black, silver and lime?
Vomit, vomit, vomit.
Was that your reaction to, or description of the car's appearance?
A thought just crossed my mind. What if all of this hype and excitement for the first race, the most we've had in a long long time, is crushed by a good old fashioned vettelwinslol on Sunday? I wouldn't find it too hard to see a few people giving up on F1, once again.
I don't see it happening unless something happened between now and two weeks ago.
Pressure must be huge for the race teams, hopefully every car runs fine and no big downtime that involves missing practice sessions.
I guess Vettel is worried what he will have this race when he puts his trousers down for qualifying and sees what he has got, Renault says he can now use full power of his power unit (Va Va Voom). Others are struggling to hide what they got already.
Alonso looks like he really needs to take a big dump.
Massa looks like he's nodding off.
