Topped for Ferrari

A review of last week's lap times gives us a little view into what the 2012 season may hold. As many have said, times mean nothing...but there is always something to take away from tests like these.

We won't see anyone's true pace perhaps until Australia, but the numbers below paint a picture and each one of us will see a different image...
