Is it a bird?

Is it a plane?

No...

It's a platypus with wings.....

I am going to have to retract my earlier comment comparing the RBR nose with Alain Prost's nose. Clearly I was wrong. Prost's nose is considerably more beautiful.

Interesting little wings next to the mirror. A little design detail to oogle as it were....

Aye, Grosjean now the newest world champ...

"Grosjean does a 1m19.796s, the first sub-1m20s lap of testing."

Nah...he won't make it past the first corner, laddie....

What do you mean "went"? Were they not already?

I don't know what's more worrying....you saying I'm correct, or the fact that obviously you have a photograph of Andre in a frame, pride of place, on your desk :o

13:14 Early reports from AUTOSPORT technical expert Gary Anderson out on track are that the Lotus looks good, and the Toro Rosso and Force India show promise.

Having now seen all the times for the first days running, I feel it only responsible of all teams bar McLaren to duly give up on thinking that they will get anywhere near winning the WCChampionship and the WDChampionship. Nearly a second a lap faster...ha! Eat McLaren rubber, you fools!!!

(Oh OK..Pirelli rubber)

Off to place my one meallion dollar bet....

So I guess no changes...

McLaren fastest but fragile

Red Bull 2nd fastest with el numero 2 at the wheel

Lotus promising a lot, then getting lost

Sauber, interesting- then falls to anonymity

Williams- last years supper, spicy pasta

How did you come to the conclusion that Lotus got lost? Also remember that Grosjean's time was set on the harder tyres, whilst Button and Webbo on the medium...

Low fuel or not, the times that Button in the Mclaren set was amazing, even for the first day, they just need to sort the reliability issues going forward...

I got a feeling that Merc will also be very fast...

yeah it was a very fast time, but such bravery after the first day is just uncalled for!!!

Where the plop do you get McLaren = fragile? The fuel pump had a fault...it wasn't the chassis breaking in two. Fuel pumps fail, no big deal.

The only thing that can conclusively be drawn from the first day of testing is that Button will be WDChampion......the rest is just mere details....
