    New Circuit, just two tents slower than test lap time of Vettel with the 2008 car.
    Another lap record for this circuit tomorrow???
    Who knows the lap record of this circuit?

    Brawn Gp are one thing at the moment and that is consistent! Good to see and i think those that bag them out as running light to impress might be made to eat their words come Melbourne.

    Good luck to them!

    Would be interesting to know why McLaren didn’t run at all today, maybe still waiting for new parts to arrive?

    the comment above is pointless, brawn gp are in an early phase of testing so will be quicker as they arent testing different parts like other teams, example.. mclaren have been testing a 2010 tire that is not pre heated. all teams have been testing kers unlike brawn also.

    i also believe that mclaren are quicker than they show, they were quickest in the early tests and then when teams moved to develop new parts they werent. the times arent a real showing of what each team can do in my opinion.
