Ferrari and Mercedes tops the first 2 days of testing.

Sa testing madalas malakas ang Ferrari. Sana pati sa qualifying at race mismo matuloy yung momentum.

We will probably get a better idea of the car's true performance during the second week of testing.

For now it's all about reliability and optimizing setup.

Yeah, it would be nice to see the top three teams be closer this year.

Hyped for the race. Ferrari is the favorite this year. At least based from testing.

Yeah, the Ferrari are quite impressive, aren't they? I just hope Mercedes are not hiding an extra 2 seconds in their pocket like last time.

I think Williams and Renault has been amazing as well. Although the reliability on the Renault engines are quite worrying.

Redbull is sure to have something up their sleeve. Unless the clamp down on the Trick Suspension System has really pushed them down a notch. They still look pretty fast.

Biggest disappointment (For 3 years now?) is still McLaren. I was really hoping they can get their act together. Hey, miracles can still happen.

For now it's really shaping up as a very close fight between Mercedes and Ferrari. Let's hope it does turn out that way, for spectacle's sake.

I was hoping that McLaren will be quick this year. Last year they at least got a fastest lap in a race. Back to square one I guess.

Hoping Ferrari could win races this year.

It sure looks more interesting than their previous livery.

As for pre season testing. Here's a nice analysis of the cars:



Looks like Ferrari, Mercedes, Redbull then.

Last year, James Allen also said Mercedes was about half a second faster than Ferrari, based on long run simulations.

Hopefully he is also on point here.

Yeah, I hope it stays that way the whole season, with Ferrari eventually getting pole on other tracks.

Sayang Redbull is not yet as competitive. It could have been a three team battle.

Predicted wet race tomorrow. This will be fun... I hope. :sweat:

Nice recovery by Vet and Ver. Great wheel to wheel action by Vet and Ric. Nice win by Ham, but looks like Merc is not going to run away with the championship this time around. Ferrari giving them a real battle. Promising season so far. Bring on Bahrain GP!
