http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/89776 All four Pirelli compounds have been available in the winter tests held so far, but for this week's Catalunya session only the hard and soft tyres will be in use, as these compounds have been chosen as the selection for the first three grands prix of the season, making this the most representative test so far according to Pirelli's motorsport boss Paul Hembery.

This is going to be a problem.Temperature forecast for Barcelona is only 13C which is far too low for these tyres.

Indeed the Bahrain test was going to be pretty crucial, however Melbourne can be pretty nippy this time of year or any time of year for that matter. ;)

Jenson Button is doing pitstop practice, Sergio Perez is the first to appear on the live timing screen with a fastest lap of 1:26.789. That would suggest the track has dried out or is drying out fairly rapidly.

There's been a red flag while I've been away! Sebastien Buemi is the first to breakdown.

Track is green again now and Perez and Hulkenberg are the first to re-emerge.

Good Morning Galahad.

Nick's programme is for lots of short runs. We have development items to assess, suspension work, new tyre runs and general set-up work.

We should learn if Mercedes and McLaren have made any progress closing that 2 second a lap gap to the Ferrari and Red Bull. ;)
