- Verstappen will not test for Spyker. Some teammembers from Spyker said they didn't know who's going to test, but they think Christian Klien on Thursday (as a replacement of Albers).

- Piquet caused a red flag spinning in the last corner due to an electric problem.

- The trackconditions are getting better and better with an ambiant temperature of 15 C and a tracktemperature of 22 C.

Do you have some serious problems with completing a sentence with arguments? Like Piquet testing is a bad idea and makes you sarcastically disappointed because of what exactly? Is it somekind of threath or insult towards Fisichella or what's the beef here? You leave us guessing.

After an hour lunch, the teams are coming back out again. The sun is to keep shining and the warmer asphalt will make for faster laptimes than this morning.

Seconded. At least the guy has humor. :)

Seriously, I don't like Nelson Piquet Jr., because he is very arrogant, and his results and speed don't justify this behaviour to the fellow drivers. I'm also not convinced by his testing input for Renault.

You have serious problem with the possibility of Fisichella losing his seat. Dont take it personally. Fisichella will be dropped if there is someone better. It's all in good spirit.

I would be happy now to see Fisichella outside of a Renault and in a decent seat like Williams or Toyota.

But my antipathy towards Piquet jr. didn't started when he was bitching against Fisi. He is arrogant, loves bashing and detracting every fellow drivers (Speed - he is only in the F1 with his name, says Piquet :rotfl: ), and he is not that fast. If he enters Renault next year, I will support Kovalainen to wipe the floor with this guy.

Great Clampett, you see it's much more fun when you throw in an argument once in a while ;)

Originally posted by clampett

I actually agree that he gives the impression of being arrogant but I don't know the guy well enough to say for a fact that he IS arrogant, do you?

Do you know how he behaves towards fellow drivers, I've heard nothing from other drivers about Nelsinho other than the usual quarrels and the odd jealousy.

Also you imply that if his results and speed were better/higher that then he could behave badly towards other drivers.

Obviously Renault think that him testing benefits the Renault team in some way, be it gathering data for the engineers or preparing Nelsinho for a drive in the Renault in 2008.

I don't know him either, but I read in an article a while ago that Piquet jr is a bit shy and timid and also honest, and that sometimes gives the impression of him being arrogant.

Williams or Toyota are better cars than Renault? Last weekend Trulli retired the car because he couldn't drive it!

Fisichella could drive them a lot better. And it doesn't matter if you are fighting for P7 pr P9.

As has already been said, there have been no serious references to his behaviour from the other drivers.

And as for his speed and results, you're right. Anyone who can take a championship down to the final race in a spec series against the new messiah Lewis Hamilton must be slow as shit. :rolleyes:

At 14:45 Ralf Schumacher stopped in front of Eau Rouge, Coulthard stopped (close to Les Combes) as well due to gearbox problems. The red flag took a bit longer than half an hour.

There are coming more and more dark clouds, the ambiant temperature has dropped a little, but the tracktemperature has gone up. Furthermore it's a pretty 'quiet' day in terms of incidents..

----

In the morning it was Coulthard that was the first to go out on track but Hamilton set the first reference point 12 minutes later with a 1:49.627 set in a 5 lap run. Then came Massa to set the fastest for a long time but at the moment it's Hamilton back on top again.

Van der Garde might actually be promoted to Albers place, I think he’s got some money to offer and after all he’s Dutch as well.

If Renault likes to drop and fight with Spyker next season a pair Heikky/Nelsinho would be perfect...

Anyway all we knows that Nelsinho has some chances just because he belongs to Flav and thanks to the brasilian sponsor linked with his name (father name).

He made nothing in GP2 to deserve a role as tester in Renault.

Anyway there are strong rumours for a seat in Williams...we'll see

Kimi gets fewer days testing this week as a reward from Mr Todt for pulling his thumb out of his arse in Magny-Cours and Silverstone.

At 15:45 the testsession restarted. Rosberg caused the red flag after locking up his rearwheels and coming to a standstill...Coulthard is back on track also.

But of course, he hasn't even mentioned Lewis being way faster.

At the moment Rossiter is fifth followed by Piquet, Coulthard, Rosberg, Klien, Van der Garde and Liuzzi. Van der Garde is about to go out on new tyres maybe improving a bit more.

AFCA, Thanks for all the great tech info that you post on this forum. Any idea why ferrari are testing the old wings and I also noticed there was no hole on the nose. Any reason that they would test without those upgrades that were implemented for the last few races ?
