    No idea what it all does, but always happy to see someone do something different. I really hope McLaren have a decent season.
    Certainly a clever idea. http://www.f1technical.net/development/435

    The mac *looks* the most developed to me at this stage. Not just the trick bits, it just looks very well swirled and pointed (I know that doesn't make sense). It looks like a bit of wildlife. The merc also looks hard, but the mac just looks a bit more predator like to me at the moment. I'm going to bet 20 on kev for wdc :)

    0815:

    Red Bull have made it out - with Daniel Ricciardo managing to drive all the way round the lap and make it back to the garage without any problems.
    Achievement unlocked!

    ...and whilst he's done 7 laps, Rosberg has done 49. lol

    The Renault cars are so fucked.

    Edit - Rosberg 80 laps, Renault cars, 29.

    Red Bull have called it. You get the feeling no-one is going to be getting any sleep there for a few weeks.

    It's very satisfying to see things not going their way for a change :)

    I might be in the minority, but I'll be glad to see mechanical failures come back in the sport. The cars have been too reliable the last few years.

    I agree. It would add a missing level of unpredictability.

    So merc look the strongest, which almost certainly means they aren't. I've got big hopes for Williams :) I do wonder if those bras that mclaren have dangled over their rear suspension are a bit of silver bullet though

    I know a couple of guys at Red Bull, and the word on the street is that there's an awful lot of people waiting for their five figure bonus from last year before jumping ship.

    Ferrari don't look like anything special to me, bar doing lots of laps. I'd be very surprised if rbr aren't up there at some point either, if not right at the beginning

    So after 4.5 years of near total domination they'd jump on the basis of 4 days sub optimal testing? Could probably do without that sort of employee anyway!

    Some to other teams / suppliers, others to other industries or production vehicles like AML.

    You think this is about the testing? Oh no, many have seen the writing on the wall for 2014 for some time.

    They could wait and see what happens, but if it doesn't go so well it might be too late to find a vacancy in another team.

    I may end up regretting this in November but I've taken a punt on Massa to win a race this season.

    I really really want to see him take the fight to a Ferrari this season, coming out on top.

    Edit:
    I mean in a race or two - not across the season.

    Me too. It'd be a real highlight for a lot of people I imagine.

    Oh yes. Not 'cos of Ferrari, but because 1/ Massa 2/ Williams

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    A Williams of any sort mixing it up consistently at the front would be utterly tremendous

    I reckon Schumacher will be up and able to do a lap of Melbourne before the RB.
