One more day of testing remaining. Teams been slowly turning up the wick. Mercedes set a 1:19:3 yesterday on Ultra Softs, and then Vettel smashes that with a 19:0 today, while lifting on the line, so could've easily done an 18. These cars are going well over 3 seconds faster than last year already at this early stages of the cars life.
Don't want to get my hopes up too early on Ferrari, but been a lot of positive comments from people watching trackside on how good the cars is performing at the moment. As for Mclaren, they're a fucking mess. They look like they might have to fight off Sauber for last place in Australia unless they find a solution very quickly. Alonso called the Honda engine, slow and unreliable, It was 26 kmh down on the home straight ffs
Also now Liberty Media ousted Bernie, there's been a noticeable change already in content. Teams allowed to film in the pitlane. FOM themselves have installed onboard cameras on some of the cars and really making an effort to produce more content for fans.
Nice onboard of Bottas flying lap yesterday, really showing how much more corner speed these new cars produce (Video embedding blocked, you'll need to view externally).
