Campos are being sold to that A1GP guy, no? There seems to be a mess with most of these new teams and Stefan GP, having acquired the Toyota Chassis etc have hired Mike Coughlan, spygate fame, and Dave Ryan, Hamilton lying fame, to help them out. They look serious and good for them because others seem to be no where. I doubt they have a slot, Toyota pulled out and their team was not sold to Stefan GP. I think they are banking on Campos not making it, and then be prepared and ready to take their slot on the grid. Now that the new teams have permission to miss any three races, most will probably miss the first three. Fans might, oh well I am sure they will, miss the razzmataz the constructors brought to F1. These new teams are perhaps not the best replacement for car giants.
I was looking for Valencia lap record myself, for 2009, but all that would come up was the street circuit and when i finally found something it was pretty much the same, Davidson, in a Honda from 2006. Well, turns out that Massa's time of 1:11.722 is seven tenths slower than the 2008 time. I can't find the 2009 testing time which i am sure must belong to Brawn GP. Either way, it's a pretty impressive time by the Ferrari, although they did short runs all of yesterday so fuels load might be a question mark. Mclaren have started throwing paint at their diffuser already, trying to find out more about the air flow. Might be 2009 all over again for them. Times are all deceptive anyway, as Rosberg's time is pretty identical to what Schumacher did considering everyone went at least half a second quicker in the afternoon, when Schumacher first took to the track. Rosberg has been complaining of his seating position which will be sorted by the next test. Renault showed good pace, given they did the longest run. Williams look seriously off the pace and with reliability issues.
All eyes will be on the champions today, particularly the Spaniard, and doubt that he will do a better time than Massa in his first outing, that will make people talk.
I can see them now
