Testing times are so hard to read, so confusing and so unreliable.mlittle wrote:..............or, could Renault have been sandbagging?Julian Mayo wrote: Ahah! Chinks in the Brawn armour????
Just before this test at Jerez, Sebastian Vettel set what was considered to be a stunning time of 1:19.055 and he was over half a second quicker than anyone else. No one came close to that time in any of the other days.
Now Alonso and Barrichello and Button have smashed that time so what does that mean ?
I suspect that the hotter track conditions were a major reason but I also suspect that many teams did not test in low fuel configuration at the same time Vettel did.
It will be interesting to see what McLaren will do this test as they are working round the clock to get their car right and ready. The started a day later than the rest and are staying 2 more days after the rest!
