Harry Ola wrote:Practice (P1 & P2) for the Spanish Grand Prix suggests that Red Bull may have taken a step forward, closing the gap on Ferrari. But it looks like Mercedes may have taken a big step forward, with the fastest times on short and long runs today. Early days, but the time sheets have a more familiar ring to them than the first 4 races.

Christian Horner said a couple of weeks back that it always looks like this in practise but come qualifying and race day, Ferrari and Mercedes can turn up their engines, which Red Bull can't.

Yes?

Palmer is so gooseberry fool, he seems completely broken.

That was horrendous driving :fp: :slol:

This could get interesting near the end with the differing tyre strategies.

Good race today I'm glad the stewards didn't penalize Lewis or Seb for their coming together.

It was a dire race. If not for Lewis following Sebastian for those laps there would have been no action.

Shame Fernando got pushed out on the first corner. Would have been interesting to see if he could have held out for points. Based on Wehrlien he should have done it. Ah well, Indy starts now. Anyone know how we can follow that?

Rumour has it that the race itself will be free to watch on BT Showcase.

Motorsport in the 80's were insane F1 cars with unlimited boost the Group B era in WRC the Group C monsters in Endurance Racing cars reaching 400km/h on the Mulsanne straight at LeMans no chicane.

I still can't get over the skill it must have taken to be driving f1 cars like that with foot clutches, no power steering and a proper gear stick.
