True. I know that all the teams aren't running to their full potential, fine tunning and ecerything. But schumi was half a second faster than the nearest 2012 competitor (rbr) and that must count for something. Plus today rosberg put the mercedes a top the time sheets again. We'll see what happends in the next test where they brin the 2012 machine.

I miss the good old F1 days. 2008 and before. The cars look like s**t.

F1 is going downhill. All of these stupid new circuits in the stupidest parts of the world.

F1 will never be the same.

The only time I see/notice what the cars really look like are in the launch pictures. Once the season starts, I am paying attention to other things.

The new Mercedes looks good. Best looking step nose IMO. Hopefully schumie can get on the podium with this one.

Looking bad for Lotus this week. Wonder what their problem is. Maybe chasis strength in a mounting spot, if I had to guess.

Ya, I was kinda hoping to go to Austin, but man hotel prices are already spiking?

Rates for many hotels skyrocket on F1 weekend

Sheesh!

Less than 1-week to go to Australia GP 2012 .

And for those interested in Rubens Barichello, he is now officially a driver in IndyCar. And appears (not suprisingly) to be very fast. I wish him the best.

It would be nice to see Kubica healthy and racing again. I think he's an awesome driver, and I think he and Alonso would be a great team.
