Last year was a borefest, too.
As awesome and exciting last season's winter testing was, this one has got to be a borefest. Impossible to live up to that standard, with the regulations staying the same.
The only interesting thing is perhaps Red Bull duplicating what Merc did last season, with a "new" car later in testing. Other than that, yawn.
You just experienced it differently because you latched onto every rumor, nameless engineer quote, the body language contest and all this sent you reeling into a path of despair. If i remember correctly the "experts" had merc 2nd behind Ferrari, then 3rd behind RB and finally by the end of the first week merc was deemed midfield caliber. It was all BS to generate clicks because that is the current media model- clicks- not actual reporting
The vast majority of us yawned and could not believe people were buying into the BS being thrown around.
Btw its happening again this year but this time with Ferrari. Gary Andersen is declaring the Ferrari is a dog which i don't buy for a second, just as I didnt buy the merc doomfest last year
