Speaking of Kimi. He was fastest today but the cars are a LOT slower than last year...

Too early to look at times. Kimi was 10 seconds slower than last year. That's not the car, that's people not pushing it in any way.

The cars sound as farty as expected. Not exciting. On this, Bernie was right.

Well 10 sec/lap slower than at the same test last year

I think overall the cars will be slower this year.

After 2013, who wasn't thinking the cars need to be slower and uglier?

Shorter wings and no more exhaust blowing means a lot less aero downforce. Not surprising they are slower over a lap. Top speeds expected are higher, I read.

It's early days. Less aero effect could be good for the show, even if lap times are down.

The Ferrari sounds nicely breathy and sexy, I'd say. Good change from the monotonous scream of recent years.

So McLaren have got their car going at last. I wonder if someone had misplaced the keys yesterday? Perhaps Martin Whitmarsh had hidden them out of spite.

Apparently all 3 Renault cars affected by ERS-problem. Toro Rosso, Caterham & Red Bull with 16 laps combined.
