Best race pace, but can they develop their car? And how will they handle tyres at higher temperatures – today was around 19C but at 30C what will happen?
Also the best race pace, and with Alonso and a better ‘REAL’ race circuit / race track, Alonso will be able to show better race pace also
Adrian Newey still has the fastest car and can win the WDC again. The tyres were the worst at these lower temps, but should presumably be better when in their ‘optimum’ range and working with the car at the usual higher temperatures through the year.
Still much better than expect. Good on tyres. Good on light fuel. Very bad on heavy fuel.
Bad strategy in qualifying and a bad car to finish 9th/10th. Martin Whitmarsh fails again and they must develop very strongly by mid-season which is a few months away.
