And while Vettel managed a fastest lap in day 1 of testing, Nico managed more than double the mileage of anyone else while still showing good pace...

Unofficial Sunday testing times from Jerez
1. Sebastian Vettel, Ferrari, 1m 22.620s, 60 laps
2. Marcus Ericsson, Sauber, 1m 22.777s, 73 laps
3. Nico Rosberg, Mercedes, 1m 23.106s, 157 laps
4. Daniel Ricciardo, Red Bull, 1m 23.338s, 35 laps
5. Valtteri Bottas, Williams, 1m 23.906s, 73 laps
6. Carlos Sainz Jr, Toro Rosso, 1m 25.327s, 46 laps
7. Fernando Alonso, McLaren, 1m 40.738s, 6 laps

That Sauber does look pretty nice. I like blue cars.

Strangely there's been a lack of blue colours of recent years.

I recall in 1995 that there were too many predominantly blue cars and the FIA asked a few teams to modify them.
Blue cars:
- Williams
- Benetton
- Ligier
- Tyrrell
- Jordan
- Sauber
- Simtek

Tyrrell changed their sidepods to white and Jordan exchanged the blue for green.

origonal Tyrrell livery:


origonal Jordan livery:

LOL!
You just wanted to misuse THAT word...! Razz

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
So Manor/Maurissia have signed Roberto Merhi (wish spoellchecker would 'auto-update' or something, ffs!) to partner Will Stevens eh?

I thought Stevens put on a decent show last year and, with a bit more "Media Grooming" he'll turn out to be a fully-rounded "Good Egg".
I've seen Merhi in GP3 and he seemed a better-than-decent talent whilst hampered by the traditional lack of sponsorship - which allegedly caused the stall in his career btw.

So fair play to Manor for going for a talented newbie, when they could so easily have settled on any number of well-recognised pay-drivers.
Carmen Jorda @ Lotus springs immediately to mind...for no other reason than she's CRAP!!!

'origonal', wow that's a new one, too much typing on Word with auto-correct!

I think you're right with Mehri, both auto-correct and talent. Stevens I'm not so sure, I wasn't wow-ed by him in WSR last year. He seems arrogant to me, but it might just be nerves. Will give him benefit of the doubt and see how he goes this year though, surely can't be worse than Chilton.

I believe that is a nod to wycco and his spelling of that word. I know the last couple of our homes that he was an admin on always defaulted the spelling of origonal to origonal...
