Slightly miffed that Lotus have chosen Fauzy to shake the car down on it's early runs. Can't get a realisitic idea of the cars pace with a rookie test driver behind the wheel. I guess that it's one for the "sponsors" letting the Malayan guy have a go first.

The car's completed more laps than the Virgin so that's a start I guess.

Good to see the Red Bull pop to the top of the time sheets but you can't tell much from a wet track.

Why won't stop raining

C'mon Lotus :D

The weather isn't going to help with being able to tell if the car works or not anyway. :s

I don't mind that it's wet.

It will still give us an indication of how the cars (and drivers) perform relative to each other.

Is the track drying? otherwise that was one quick lap from DLR in the Sauber.

At least Fauzy Bear is still quicker than the Renault :whistle:

Dry line appearing in certain places, lots of spray on other parts.

I'm going shopping, back in an hour.

Good stuff snowy :thumbsup:

Nice to see Lotus getting some laps under their belts if nothing else.

The best times last week were in the 1m19 - 1m20 range so we're some way off a dry pace yet.

F1.com has some pictures from todays test, with Mike Gascoyne looking horribly like Derren Brown. I wonder if he is planning some mind control on the other teams to leap Lotus to the front? LOL

http://www.formula1.com/gallery/testing/2010/512.html

There's also a close up of the front wing supports on the Merc, it looks like extra bits have been added and then the holes touched up with filler. Not the sort of professional execution we expect of modern GP teams...
