The Formula 1 teams are still in the development of their cars and have already completed their second day of testing at Barcelona, sixth overall if we look at all the preseason at the Circuit de Catalunya. In it the rain, cold and wind have regained prominence and therefore would have subtracted from the timesheets once again is analyzed with caution.
Early in the morning the riders were met with a wet track that was improved over the hours since the rain not reintroduced until the afternoon. In that period Jenson Button has been making short and medium runs and was the first who dared to ride dry tires which has served to set the fastest time of the morning past noon.
Meanwhile many others devoted to long runs as Fernando Alonso who mostly did this type of stints in the afternoon. The Spaniard had much work to do and that was testing new releases and new front wing in conditions close to race for him so times have been immaterial. So I said the rider who finished the day in last place but happy for all that he had worked with new material.
It was a good day, we could try many things and we have complied with all the program, in that sense the team is happy and has been a positive day
And it is already known that times by now do little but I must say that the return of Romain Grosjean in the evening was very good stopping the clock at 1:22:716 riding the soft compound. Jenson Button was second while Pastor Maldonado and Sebastian Vettel were after him.
Other notes highlight of the day was the helmet he used experimental Daniel Ricciardo or presence of Adrian Sutil and official driver at the wheel of Force India after yesterday was confirmed as a race driver. In this sense remains striking situation Luiz Razia because neither has risen to the car and Max Chilton is using to make many kilometers of tests so that means Razia problems remain with their sponsors and still could are solution be some shock in relation to his post.
