Yes it was, horrendous drop off after the fast lap. All teams are suffering the same.

Of course! And people here still wonder why Merc are not testing softs? A complete waste of time and data.

Just to add Perellis Paul Hembrey estimates the softs would last `10 laps in Australia.

Hmmm.... I'll wait and see the full race sim and then what the others can do before getting too excited. It's getting more difficult to fight off the waves of rising optimism mind you :smoking:

On an aero dominated track, with seven laps of fuel, on a track that was soaking wet yesterday............

This really is a great lap time. All the team need to do now is improve the car and work on tyre deg.

Welcome to 2013.............

Touching your own liquid after 1st "job complete" isn't that fun I would say

On a serious note: can we expect today a race simulation from Mercedes?

This soft tyre is softer than last year, so no good comparison with last year in my opinion.

At least its confirmed now. The car is not a dog. I know the macs, ferraris, Lotus and Redbull can possibly do the same or even better, we are certainly in the mix

Considering it was a 7 lap run, Merc could do better as well. It will be very interesting if he was on Medium. I am begining to believe that hitherto, they had been running the car heavy just like LH said.

Pirelli's estimation is that the 2013 rubber is approximately 0,5s faster. Making comparisons to last year though, I agree will lead to nowhere. Plus, I do think those were softs, not mediums.

too bad for the red flag, assuming he was fueled for a 7ish stint again would mean merc can do quali times in the 1:19 region, which is mind blowing
