Yup, we know these are speculations but where is the fun without it. As of now Ferrari is strong and I am loving it

I am sure they would be strong come March. This should be a great year for the fans if at least 4 teams managed to build competitive cars. The fight should be good.

With Aldo Costa saying there could be another diffuser row this year (http://www.planetf1.com/story/0,1895...23294,00.html) ,seems Ferrari has missed the bus this time too with regards to the diffuser and do they already knew something which we dont?

Did you notice the diffuser Ferrari were using at the Valencia testing? Its a 3-Tier structure unlike the DDD of the Brawn from last year.

The car has already proved to be fast out of the box! Not sure, if they missed something with the diffuser! The noise from Costa might be to protect the Ferrari's 3-Tier diffuser's legality. You never know

My mind ( i can to totally wrong also) somehow says that they wont be the best in the field they were just running low on fuel than others in the earlier test, so lets see the true picture in the coming tests. Also it is said that their engine placement is 3.5 slope to the chassis helping the air flow to the diffuser

Alonso's fastest lap of Valencia came in the 4th Lap of a 12 Lap stint. And that day was his first day in the cockpit which means he was still getting accustomed to the seating position when he did this lap time. But then, its testing and I might be completely wrong!

That was really hilarious. Good one!

Maybe it's Benhur inspired

Not bad at all for FORCE INDIA f1 team irrespective of fuel loads they clocked the fastest in speed trap of 270.7km/hr so the drag on the car is very less which also means they may be good at only some circuits like spa

looks like Michael Schumacher is playing very safe and is a bit low profile during testing.

3 weeks, lets wait and watch.

Yes, me thinks he's testing the car for a "NO PITSTOP RUN" for the coming races.

I bet he can make those tyres last the whole race, and we might see some no pitstop race from Schumi
