    Default Official Formula One 2010 Week 1 Test Thread

    Gonna be tired tmr morning... After 1 hour of running, McLaren's on top.

    1:14.359 Paffett - McLaren
    1:14.898 De la Rosa - Sauber
    1:16.602 Kubica - Renault
    1:17.004 Barrichello - Williams
    1:26.395 Buemi - Toro Rosso
    1:32.873 Massa - Ferrari
    1:57.211 Rosberg - Mercedes

    In Massa and Rosberg's defense, I don't think they've done a proper hot lap yet.

    Michael Schumacher is expected to be running the afternoon session starting at 5:30am Calgary time. Time for a nap!

    And final times for today. It's only day 1, at least McLaren is not 3 or 4 seconds off the pace like last year! LOL

    1. F. Massa Ferrari F10 1:12.574 102 pit
    2. P. de la Rosa BMW Sauber C25 1:12.784 +0.210 74 pit
    3. M. Schumacher Mercedes GP W01 1:12.947 +0.373 40 pit
    4. N. Rosberg Mercedes GP W01 1:13.543 +0.969 39 pit
    5. G. Paffett McLaren MP4-25 1:13.846 +1.272 86 pit
    6. R. Barrichello Williams FW32 1:14.449 +1.875 75 pit
    7. S. Buemi Toro Rosso STR5 1:14.762 +2.188 18 pit
    8. R. Kubica Renault R30 1:15.000 +2.426 69 pit

    With this year's no refuelling rule change, testing is going to be all over the map as teams test various fuel loads to gauge how the car reacts to different weights.

    Considering McLaren is the only one using a test driver I'd say they did pretty effing well.

    ^ Does you know if any teams tried a low fuel lap today? I assume most teams were trying to validdate their weight transfer calcs on nearly full tanks. I saw that merc had strain gauges on their a-arms and push rods but I couldn't see anyone else running them today...

    Man ferrari's garage must've been running a tight ship to finish that many laps. I wonder why no one else seemed to take the testing seriously haha. I know some teams like STR had mechanical issues but I was hoping for McLaren to do a bit better with their testing plan.

    de la Rosa hasn't been much more than a test driver for the last 3 years..

    Well, looking at the standings. The 3 Big Teams (Ferrari, Mclaren, and Mercedes [Brawn]) ran the most laps out of that whole group. Ferrari may have been giving Massa more time in the car as well to get him "back in the groove" sorta. That's just a guess.. haha probably a bad one!
