Beards are suicide in F1. Has there ever been a successful bearded F1 driver ever? I think not!
I think you may be correct, best I could think of is the tasche and sideburns combo. That and looking like Dick Dastardly.

Apparently not raining particularly hard of for very long. :)

Testing continues, and Vettel is doing his usual 1m23's.

Dry sack! How many times have I heard that this week?!!

Paul di Resta is in the gravel at turn 6 - Dry Sack.

And irony of ironies it is now raining quite hard... :(

This could be the end of the show.

This was di Resta's latest issue
Force India said:
Problem for Paul was suspected front suspension failure. Total mileage more than 1,000km - good debut and got a strong direction for Barca
Thanks again for the updates Snowy :)

On McLaren, they're less than a tenth behind RBR today, no need to panic yet. I don't believe for a second STR are ahead of RBR anyway!

It's all a huge guessing game at this stage as to who is sandbagging and who has shown real pace. Witness Sauber last season, who looked to be very competitive and then disappeared almost without trace. Then of course you can compare that with Brawn, who everybody thought were doing runs on fumes, only to be stunned by their genuine pace when the season started.


Test Driver
The fact that the RBR's and Mclaren's are so close in times (between their respective drivers) suggests perhaps there is some rev limiting going on?
