Vergne's car seems to be awfully balance, ignoring just every second corner

They also seem to have the two strakes on the top of the sidepods like Mclaren.

Ha I knew as I wrote that someone would point out lotus was first to implement the strake. I said Mclaren as they have the two strakes and the RB version seems more in line with theirs possible due to them adopting the Mclaren style exhausts.

Blimey, Jenson sounded like a beaten man on the radio then. He needs to sort his head out.

Watching the on board Lewis is struggling a fair bit with little lock ups, backing out of many laps, just doing laps to get a better feel of the circuit now I'd guess.

I hope they don't go chasing the track with set up for Jenson. They're already talking about changing quite a lot at the front. It could just be that the track is so dusty and green. Not the best start for the lad.

I think it's more to do with the fact that the track is very dirty instead of brakes.

It seems like 1,5 sec down will take you somewhere 18-20 - times are close, as they were in Canada.

Canada is one of the shortest circuits on the calendar, so the time difference never get high there (1.13.XXX). Valencia is a 1.38-1.40 track so 1.5s difference is really good if Kova can keep the difference through the weekend.

I know, but look at top ten: 2 tenth down and you are 7th.

yeah, as a Vettel fan that is getting a bit tiring, would be happier if they'd just swallow their pride and put on the mclaren version.
