    Testing will cease after the 4th March, until the mid-season test at Mugello

    14:51 In this 15-lap stint, Webber has dropped just one second on the hards. That would suggest Red Bull is looking very good.

    I know it is one day to late but since I didn't find any results of the first practice day posted I hope it is ok if I do so. :)

    I'm interested to see what changes Red Bull have made besides their exhaust layout.

    I checked the Lotus lap times and undoubtly they were doing medium compound and heavier loads.

    So how do we think things are stacking up for the new season, RBR look as strong as ever but i like the idea that others are alot closer then thistime last year, i hope the mclaren boys can take the fight to seb and mark. What about farrari, are they sand bagging or are they genuinely off the pace AGAIN?

    I believe the teams will be around equal to last year, compared to each other, with Lotus moving to 4th, maybe even third above Ferrari, with Caterham moving in front of Williams and maybe Toro Rosso.

    EDIT: Also, McLaren and RB to be much closer to each other

    RBR and Mclaren leading, RBR slight advantage i think.
    Ferrari abit of a dark horse atm, last year they looked strong in testing but failed in Oz.
    This year they look poot but there are some anomalies to that which makes them a bit of a wild card.
    Lotus and Mercedes fighting for 4th,
    STR, Sauber leading the mid-pack, Caterham leading the garageristas ;)

    I'm worried for Williams. :( I remember reading on Autosport that Senna was dropping off 4s on a 15-lap run on softs - looks like a non tyre-friendly car again. Although, thinking positively - maybe it has good aero this time (thus causing more tyre wear). :D I have a feeling Sauber could struggle, and that Lotus will be quicker than Ferrari at the first couple of races again, before dropping back to a close scrap with Mercedes & F.I.
    It's all just (educated) guessing though, to be honest, is it not? :p
