    Williams has an interesting exhaust... It seems to sit very far forward on the side pod in order to hit the rear wing squarely. Wouldn't be surprised if McLaren's cobbled on exhaust outlet is a fake covering similarly forward positioned exhaust outlets.

    Not much to read into that. Last year, Barrichelo was fastest, and look what happened to his season.

    But from the absolute times, Kimi, at the very least, seems to be in a competitive car with good pace. Pretty sure Lotus will be at least in the upper-midfield this season.

    Jerez pre-season test - Day 2 reaction

    Seven-time F1 champion Michael Schumacher and Mercedes topped the second day of testing in Jerez, somewhat pointlessly given that the car was a 2011-spec machine. After the day was done, everyone had a good old natter.

    "We made some very good work with the new tyres...they are more consistent and a lot closer to what you would expect from a Formula One tyre," he was quoted as saying by Autosport.

    "Understanding those tyres was our main focus and we had a programme we did pretty well with."

    As for his 2012 hopes, however, he added: "I don't think we can realistically achieve a championship car immediately from where we started last year, we have to build our way there.

    Definitely a pointless record. He's running the 2011 car, which has more downforce than this year's car.

    What will be interesting to see is if any of this year's cars will actually match that time.

    the car they used didn't have the exhaust blown diffuser. they covered the back end of the car immediately after stopping at the pits. that is definitely not a 2011 car.

    Schumacher fastest on second day in Jerez - Yahoo! Eurosport

    Schumacher, driving last year's Mercedes W02 in full trim so that the team could gain as much information about Pirelli's 2012 tyres from a stable platform
    It's not a 2012 spec car. They were using an old car to test tires. Their full 2012 spec isn't out yet.. The car Webber was running was, so it's more of an indication.

    Not that any of these laps matter, anyway... ...I wonder what the lap record at Jerez would be if they actually tried to set a lap record in one of the better cars from the last two years....

    F1: Rosberg fastest on day 3 of Jerez pre-season testing

    Mercedes GP driver Nico Rosberg took the fastest lap time in today’s FIA Formula One pre-season test in Jerez, Spain. The German team continues in their goal to find the needed information prior to finalizing their 2012 car by putting down laps utilizing their 2011 racing machine with a few minor changes on the new Pirelli tires before they show off their new challenger in Barcelona.

    "I'm happy with the testing that we have achieved here in Jerez, and we learned a lot about the Pirelli tyres and a few other things for the new car," said Rosberg. "It seems that the tyres are closer performance-wise this year, with the rear tyres also looking a bit stronger. Pirelli have done a good job so far. You can't really compare the lap times with other teams, but it was interesting to learn a lot with our 2011 car. Now I'm really looking forward to the two Barcelona tests with our new Silver Arrow."
