They've done it every year in tesying

Although ferrari are putting more miles on the clock than anyone thus time. That could be a strong car

If you don't try it how do you know you don't like it?

It certainly looks like it. Leclerc was very impressive today.

It is a shame about Williams. I'd love it if they got back to the top

It would be good to see Williams turn up, build the car and immediately be in the mix for a good time

RE: The UKSF F1 Club

Perhaps a surprise today to see Kvyat top of the timings. Testing is never a good indicator of real pace but this year I can't help hoping it is.

Unreliability priblems at Haas, so far the only team to have had a real weakness

And a Williams on track at last. We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what it can or can't do though

RE: The UKSF F1 Club

End of the first week of testing and it's been a little more interesting than usual, especially impressive is the reliability of the cars with most teams easily running for long stints without problems

It is hard to tell from testing, but the general consensus is that Ferrari are the team to beat with the Mercedes looking a bit of a handful on track sometimes. But after the usual two it looks close with Alfa Romeo, Renault and Torro Rosso all setting the pace in the sessions

At the tail end it looks like Racing Point and Williams, although the latter are most definitely playing catch up, although they weren't far off the pace of the other trams by the end of Thursday despite the others already having three extra days of running under their belt. Things could hang next week, particularly if the weather warms up in Barcelona

Haas look like the team who could go either way. Occasionally quick but also suffering a number of electronics issues leaving them stranded on track. The only other team with any significant obvious problem were Renault who had Ricciardo's rear wing fail after a suspected DRS issue

Good round up Diamond.

Next week should be interesting. Hopefully it will give us a bit more info on which cars are going to challenge.

Did you hear about the fire in the McLaren?Luckily there were only a couple of minor injuries. They haven't been able to assess if the car has been damaged and therefore can't confirm whether they will take part in testing next week. Let's hope they can.

I did hear about it. I hope The mechanics who were injured recover quickly and I hope the car is ready for next week. Its shown sine good pace an reliability,, which has made a change from recent seasons

RE: The UKSF F1 Club

Testing started in earnest again this week. Fortunately the McLaren wasn't badly damaged in the fire on Friday and seems to be at least more reliable than recent years and also seems to have pace.

Mercedes turned up with a heavily revised car, maybe in response to the apparent lack of pace last week, but they could easily be sandbagging.

After a string first week Ferrari haven't had it all their own way, especially after a failure led to Vettel crashing and damaging the car.

Williams are still playing catch up but they have been setting some reasonably competitive times

Only two more days of testing to go, and then it will be a long two week wait to see how the cars really stack up at the first GP

RE: The UKSF F1 Club

It seems most of the teams are getting a good amount of laps in. Even the Williams did over 100 laps.

Interesting regarding the Ferrari and the problems they have had this week compared to last week.

Goes to show that you can't really tell anything from testing.

RE: The UKSF F1 Club

If you took testing on face value the car to beat this year is the McLaren
