With Super Aguri outpacing Toyota and a number of others some guys out there should be losing their sleep :)

Heikki has crashed at turn 7 but is said to be ok, but the car is going to take a while to repair, most likely all day. :oops:

Only one Honda setting times, don't know what that's about. Perhaps the colour scheme has already had an adverse effect. :lol:

This time it's closer but the RBs are still lagging. JM should be jumping with joy :cheer:

Interesting to see Luizzi in the STR more than 0.5s ahead of either of the RBRs.
Would be a bit embarrasing if the jr team turns out to be faster :oops:
I'm in shape

Yeah. Then again RBR might be testing different configs as Ed pointed out earlier. These test times can well be deceiving. In any case the first race is a few weeks away :) We'll know for sure then...
