Just been having a nose through the Scarbs pictures and found this one.



Remember how the Red Bull had a funny thing hanging under it's nose at the early tests last season well this explains it. It's a laser ride height sensor and you can see the red dot it emits next to the bottom grey arrow.

Not much in the way of lap times yet, for what it's worth the fastest lap at Valencia last year was a 1:11.470 by Alonso.

They'll be running systems checks and that sort of thing this morning. At least the Renault hasn't set itself on fire yet...
