The fastest time from the test session yesterday was a 1:21.487 by Mark Webber in the Red Bull, as the track rubbers in, it will be interesting to see how much quicker the cars will go today.

Nearly all the teams are testing new upgrades and they will still put new parts in Bahrain! Formula 1 is amazing, the season hasn't even started yet!!
