Poor Norbert, you're being mean as usual :noway:

So testing times mean nothing when Maldonado tops the time sheets. I still reckon the Red Bull is the car to beat this year but McLaren and Ferrari could be closer than they were last year. Just three weeks to go now, I'm getting excited!

I never wanted to predict anything but, i believe Mclaren and Ferrari are seriously sandbagging. specially Mclaren. they seems to have pull some trick this year with their steep nose, its without any argument the best looking car on current grid too. Mercedes seems to be a question mark. Redbull will not enjoy the advantage that they had in previous two year, I have a feeling that the big three (Mclaren, Ferrari and Mercedes) will outrun Redbull in mid season development due to their big resource bank and RB might find it hard to even get to the podium, only to have lotus and FINIDA/Williams for company.

Ferrari seems to understand their truck a bit better now. Merc was pretty decent in long run, Mclaren seems to have hair raising pace to be honest. Should be a fantastic season. Cant wait
Tough Luck!

Mafia, obviously, as a Macca fan, I hope you're right. For a change I would like to see my team quick off the blocks. However, I do still feel that the Bulls are the quickest cars out there. I am not too sure what to make of Ferrari, one minute everyone there seems happy, the next they're not. Lotus looked quick, but could have had a major setback. Williams and Sauber have looked quick too, but we have seem that before from cash strapped teams. I guess Force India too.

As for the Mac being the best looking car on the grid, that's not really a tough contest to triumph in, seeing as every other car seemed to have that fugly stepped nose. :loser:

Marussia is supposed to have a "normal" nose too, that is if they even make it to the first race :roll: Last year's HRT also had a pretty low nose so maybe they will keep that with the new car.

HRT's car has passed the crash tests so it's already beating Marussia's car ;)
