The YouTube stream seems like a placeholder. It was due to start at 8:30CET, then 9:00... Still nothing.

From Twitter @F1Help "With the cars fresh out the factories not all the 300+ sensors have been fitted yet".

 

It started, now, but not yet useful

C1 - Hard (softer than 2018)
C2 - Medium (slightly softer than 2018)
C3 - Soft (unchanged)
C4 - Ultrasoft (comparable)
C5 - Hypersoft (comparable)

 

I can already tell that hard as I just used to nod mindlessly, not understanding the tyres at all in 2018, I'm going to have to really up my nod game in 2019.

Man, it's infuriating we can't watch the whole day of testing here in the UK. Sky only broadcasting when they're commentating. Joke of a company.

The biggest joke is still the F1 TV app, paid for subscription, the app has listed Pre-Season Testing as Coming Soon for 18 Feb - 1600, now it is 16:24 and still it is showing nothing. How can such a big company just swallow subscriber money and offer such a $hit product????

With that low of an amount of downforce these front wings produce, Kimi will have a hard time turning a corner with him needing a strong front end.

Ferrari engine sounds so much faster than Renault in the livestream. The guy filming notices it too.

Yeah I'm not sold on Red Matte paint. Reminds me of the Flame Red (or flame pink as it was known) paint Vauxhall used to use when it had faded in the sun
