Mercedes Test report Sepang

well after an realy good weekend at Melbourn Despite the lost on of one engine. We arived in the blistering Heat of Malaysia.
1 impressions on our 2011 spec car is in on word amazing. the new engine is roaring like a beast and the aero part of the car improved alot.

Well as david already said the tyre ware is pretty high here so i tested both Sets of tyres. just changed some littil things in the setup,but im not totaal happy whit how the car behaves atm but we slighty getting there were we want to be:D.
well for tommorow i will work on the cars setup and wil try to get a much as competetiv laps out of the tyres

Williams Test Report Malaysian Grand Prix

Given how things went today, it looks like being a difficult weekend, but i will do all i can to get close to the quickest.
Today, things did not go well and i struggled to find a good balance on the car, so i will look on how i can improve over the week.

On a track with tyre degradation being what it is, there will be a lot of factors in play in the fight for the top places and just being quickest will not be enough.
This is only the start of the season: i am not quick enough to fight for the win and pole position, but that does not mean that i have to throw in the towel.

Instead i have to step up my efforts to quickly reduce the gap that separates me from those who have done a better job than me.

Lotus Renault Gp Sepang Report

Hopeful of a season debut at sepang i've been doing some initial laps, quite happy with most things although the swing your car in braking zones are where i am losing alot of time, maybe 1-2 seconds per lap if i can find it i will be right on the back of the pack. A full week to work on it so not to worried

What a stange test.

Started on quali today, started with 10laps and meds, to get the feel of low fuel, and was 0.2 off corry.

then i took fuel out and put softs on, and only improved 0.2 to match corry.
Did quite a few runs and couldent improve,

But then i went back out with meds and did 33.1 hmmmm
Was on another good lap but spun,

anyway its good for p2 on the grid, no1 will touch alex will just have to make the most of race,

Well last test today checked both compounds for the last time and it confirmed what i thaught.

Now the Setup,Tyres and everything else is set for the weekend.

Before Melbourne i was concerned if i can keep up with the Frontrunners in Qualifying and i couldnt. Now coming to Sepang looks like the same again but since we have parc ferme im confident my strategy will work for the race.

Forgot to change my boost from 6 on the first stint, so i put in on 2 for the second but the damage was already done. My engine gave way on lap 28.
