Try looking at it standing on your head. It will make more sense.

A new main mast and stickers, and it will be fine. Or at least no worse than most.

Interesting weight advantage for cars on Renault.

Quote:
When discussing race advantage, Caubet explained that Renault-powered cars can line-up on the grid with 15 to 18 litres (approximately 20-24km) less fuel than its rivals.

why is there no food on any of those tables? That video was excruciatingly unexciting. Will Buxton seems like he's trying so hard to not show how much he hates himself deep down inside.

So... crisis at Lotus, which had to abandon the test and send their chassis back to the factory. Speculation the chassis has bad mounts, possibly engine mounts.

Ferrari not feeling fast. Still trying to figure the car out. Slow on corner exits.

Red Bull looking like the creamy d'el croppo, surprise, surprise.

McLaren pleased with reliability, not sure about pace.

Mercedes already saying they're not the quickest.

Those seem to be the storylines out of Barca so far.

The comments from Massa and Rosberg were revealing today.

First, Massa. Earlier, Alonso had said they had a lot of work to do to figure out this year's car. Today Massa said they finally hit on the right development direction in the afternoon session. He said the car is so different that they had too many avenues to explore. He said that in the afternoon they were, apparently for the first time, able to put down steady lap times. He wasn't worried about overall pace so much as he was stabilizing the car and making it consistent. Fascinating, in light of Greg's link which shows how different the 2012 Ferrari is to its predecessors.

Now, Rosberg. He and Schumacher and Brawn all say the same thing: they don't have race-winning pace. But that's not the juicy bit. What's revealing is that Rosberg says this car is more polished, more prepared and more ready to go than its predecessors. Which, to me, says a lot about how far behind Brawn had slipped when Mercedes took over.

""The team is in the right direction, and the car build, the work they have done at the factory over the winter is so much better than previous years. It is clean, the car build is performing as expected and all these things [are good], so we are looking at big things as a team.""

Interesting column from the BBC's Andrew Benson that despite appearances, the Ferrari may actually be quite competitive at this point. The McLaren quite a bit less so.
