2010 Formula 1 Testing Starts.

Mercedes shows their new car (bad livery, interesting front end solutions) along with Toro Rosso and the 2010 testing season starts. Massa ended up with the fastest time but Schumacher shows he has lost nothing and is already faster than Rosberg. Score one for grandpa. Nice to see Sauber-Ferrari looking racy.

All Timing Completely Irrelevant to Actual Race Pace

  1. Well, I'm happy to see that Schuey is already on the pace, I really had no doubts frankly. He will show Ferrari that their decision to give him an early retirement to bring Kimi in was a mistake.

    For the rest, any comment on the laptimes would be BS, with the amount of fuel the cars can carry now the differences could be really huge.

    Message to the photographers: guys, start giving us some details shots of the diffuser, it will be an hot topic soon...

  2. I'm glad to see that despite the accident, Massa still can keep a good pace - the thoughts seemed to be lacking in performance after that.

    Good to see Nico Rossberg up in the competitive range as well.

  3. What is the tall appendage on the Ferrari above the camera pod on top of the air scoop?

  4. Thanks Bernie ya twit ,why would you block theese videos
