I notice on the Ferrari and these two the pronounced curvature on the side air intakes allowing a smooth air flow over the rear wheels. Was this around much before?

Well, things are beginning to hot up....

Barcelona : Sato sets a new track record at the Circuit de Catalunya

Japanese driver Takuma Sato has improved the record established yesterday by his team-mate Jenson Button (BAR). Button's score of 1'13"867 has been lowered by Sato, who achieved a time of 1'13"797 -70 thousandths faster than the British driver.

Spaniard Fernando Alonso is the second best of the day, with a time of 1'14"687. Alonso has been testing with the Renault R24, together with Franck Montagny, test-driver of the French team and champion of the 2003 World Series.

Pedro de la Rosa (McLaren Mercedes) went on testing together with Kimi Raikkonen and Alex Wurz at the wheel of the MP4-19.

The Catalan Marc Gené (BMW Williams) and this team-mate Ralf Schumacher, drove the FW26. Nelson Piquet, son of the World Champion in 81, 83 and 87, has also tested for the team, as he did last year.

14 drivers and 7 teams were testing today at the Circuit de Catalunya. Most teams will stay until Friday 6th February.

Lots of coverage of Eddie jordan talking unconvincingly about the EJ 14 on Sky Sport today. That car looks more like an F3 car, used to look awesome and now looks second rate to me. Great, just as SCX decide to make it


I`m very interested to see how young Piquet does. spoke to him a lot last season. He takes it very hard if he has a bad run. sat by me on the pit wall head in hands at Thruxton.

These cars are looking more and more like they are designed by the wind tunnel rather than by engineers! Not sure that's bad, but it may be taking what little human element there is left away from it!

Ooh! nice looking Jordan! I must go out and buy a pallet full of B&H ciggies and smoke 'em all.....


Truth be told, I'm more likely to go out and bust the speed limit after watching a good race than be swayed by tobacco adverts on the cars.

Mark.
