Final Winter Testing From Barcelona, Spain

Just the facts this time around people. I have elected to not post the times from the the first two days of this final (and all important) test due the the fact that they were both rain affected. So here is the final numbers before we head off to Melborne in two weeks time. More analysis to follow, and by that I mean my usual smart-alecky self, with a little analysis thrown in.  -jp-

  1. Given that the rules are changing for next year, what will it do to the lap times?
    I’m thinking that this will also determine driver accuman , which in turn has the best drivers separating from the pack . … then what, more weight on their cars?
    Anyway , great info.
