Today I learned that the rain light is green when the car is being driven by  a driver not currently in possession of a Super License.

 

BEHOLD!

For sure has been used 279, 653 times throughout testing so far!  :eek:  Rosberg must be accountable for at least 20% of those mentions.

Anyway, for those who haven't seen them, the amazing work by Darren Heath at Jerez is very well worth a look:  http://www.darrenhea...4/image-gallery

Only a few days until the 2nd winter test starts. The weather looks like it will be warm and sunny (no huge surprise there) 20-22°C but quite breezy for the start of the test and getting better towards the end. http://www.accuweath...orecast/1280465

A few teams (McLaren, Toro Rosso and Force India) have released there driver line ups with Magnussen, Kvyat and Hülkenberg driving the first 2 days and Button, Vergne and Pérez the final days.

It should do according to the regulations:
22.6 No TCC (Testing of current cars) may take place :
c) Before 09.00 or after 18.00 on any day at any such test.

Sky TV guide is showing the same as last test - 15 minute sky sports news highlights and a 30 minute summary show each day, but with David Croft rather than Ted Kravitz for this test.

Would anyone else prefer a separate Bahrain testing thread, instead of having to trawl though this tread to find relevant information?

The new one will be just as clustered within weeks. I'd rather all three tests were in one thread, there is already relevant info here.

At least when most people will be using the information it won't be, its only 3 weeks after when people are discussing the same point over and over when it becomes unreadable.

 

This thread would disappear off the first page within a day of starting a Bahrain thread.

 

Just IMO

Thanks.

I was hoping for full coverage, guess I'll just have to monitor twitter ;)

Hi just hope enough photographers make the long journey to Bahrain. The first things i'm looking for at every test-day are pictures. I guess we won't have many pictures from spectators this time :well: .

So are they going to be testing the new floodlights as well? Testing at night? Or just the usual day-time program?

There were some thoughts in that direction while ago, but they weren't adopted.

One more thing about continuing this thread. Is there not a 100 page limit? If so we will run out of space before all testing is done, so would sense at least to me to have a separate thread for each test.

 

:cool:
