1:22.6 on softs, FI/Sauber was on SS's yesterday. The sky might not be falling after all...

I thought Maldo would do a 1.22 on softs about 8 tenths between compounds I read somewhere.

Thats 4,ooo's of a second behind the fastest lap at Barcelona so far, I think, maths was never a strong point.

I read that the difference is 4-6 tenths.

You are probably right Francesc, 8 tenths is a lot.

with supersoft, mid-table teams can go to 1:21...then Force India looks like a great car ... maybe even better than the Ferrari, now.

So theoreticaly if Pastor straps a set of super soft boots on we could get in the 1.21's......cool

Wow! Look what a fast lap can do to the posters around here. Suddenly the gloom & doom of past few weeks is fading. Do we get points for this?

Not all of us have been doom mongers Speed but theres no doubt that seeing our car set a fast time (first time we have done a qually style run this testing season) improves everybodys disposition, maybe even Crusty's grinning smiley

Just as the previous test days and times meant nothing, so does this.

It's nice to see them let the FW34 off the leash a bit and it is no dud by the looks of it but let's keep a lid on things folks. Remember last year......

Since we know nothing of fuel loads, a fast lap is reassuring since it shows that we are at least not several seconds behind, but able to set comparable times to the other teams.

After last years debacle every bit of percieved speed is balm for the soul.

Noone is saying "We are for sure a top 3/5/whatever team!!11!1".

My only firm expectation before Australia is that Williams are faster than Caterham/Marussia/HRT.

Obviously the trick is to get Bottas to do the set up . . .

You are right MM, I think our long run pace has been very encouraging so far and the reliability is looking good also.

11:34 A 1m22.391s for the Williams driver. That's the fastest time so far this week

11:34 Maldonado goes even quicker
Supersofts
