Susie Wolff and Felipe Nasr have collided at turn 5. Wolff's front left clipping Nasr's right rear. No blame has been assigned yet but even so.....

And in other news, last years Force India is second fastest, half a second quicker than this years Red Bull. Good to see those times are an accurate reflection of potential then.

Susie's fault apparently:

Sauber driver Felipe Nasr has been talking to the media following his collision with Williams test driver Susie Wolff on the first day of the second pre-season test in Barcelona.

The Brazilian said he saw Wolff moving off the racing line and assumed she had seen him and passed her.

But as he moved right to take the normal line into Turn Five he was hit in the right rear and went off.

He said that Wolff came up and said sorry she had not seen him. Wolff has yet to speak to the media about the incident.

Let me see

Her FRONT wing hit his REAR tire. Doesn't that mean he was a full car length ahead of her? Yet she claims she didn't see him?? Just how restricted are the sight lines in an F1 car?

So the chick managed to prang the car on an out lap well done the chick, that's like picking up the brand new car from the garage and then having to explain to hubby why it isn't parked on the driveway......LOL

Susie has a lot to learn about F1. Nasr got his excuse in first to the press and now it doesn't matter if it was her fault or not as she has to respond to his comments. He says she hit him and that in the gravel trap afterwards she came up to him and apologised for not seeing him. She says he cut across her and she was minding her own business and trying to keep out of his way.

Being as Nasr was on a hot lap and the chick was on an out lap it was her responsibility to get out of the bloody way...

It sounds like she tried, but Nasr still hit her, and then made out that she admitted it was her fault. He sounds like a wonderful chap...

Alonso is doing seven lap runs today, shorter as I remember than Button yesterday. He has also done more laps, does the Honda engine loke that more?

After thinking about it Honda must have known in advance that they had a problem, there is no way that they were going to do a design change in a couple of days. It's not likely that anyone is going to let us know though.
