Wat? Het dit alles oor jou kop gegaan. Jammer man, Owen. Ek het dit so eenvoudig moontlik gehou sodat jy sal verstaan. Ek het nie rerig gedink dat dit nog steeds te ingewikkeld sou wees nie.

Relax Viva, you should know Owen by now. Very passionate re Ferrari and Seb. Take him with a pinch of salt. It would really be boring if it were only you and Vlag posting the gospel here now don't you think? You can put him on ignore if he irritates you. I enjoy your posts and I enjoy Owen's humour, Let the world keep turning. I also can't wait for the real racing, and yes I couldnt care who challenges Merc at the front of the asphalt as long as there are 4-5 + teams doing it!!!!

 

Keep up with your informative wonderful posts this place would be dead without you,  but let everyone else have their say in the sun too nê?

MH ... dit het niks te doen met sy Humor al dan nie of sy reg om nonsens te post of nie of met of hy passionate is of nie... en rakende die pinch of salt ek hat al sakke vol opgevreet met die "wyshede" wat hy post... dit is die alewige slegse en mense vloek wat my die bietjie respek wat daar nog was verloor het.

"We did not go to Spain to verify performance, but rather (to verify) reliability and the behaviour of the car."

Amid suggestions Mercedes was actively sandbagging at Jerez, Costa was asked how much of the 2015 car's potential has now been seen, and he answered: "Very little.

“Obviously the most important test will be the last one,” Arrivabene told the blog of Ferrari insider Leo Turrini.

“The simple reason is that it is only then that teams must throw away their masks and show their cards for Melbourne,” he predicted. 

“Mercedes was hiding at Jerez and you must always expect positive surprises from Honda.”

The former Marlboro executive said not much can be read into Ferrari’s chart-topping Jerez pace

“No one can sell smoke, even if I have worked in tobacco for a living.”

“I have big dreams but also feet planted in the ground. I say to our fans to believe in the effort we are making, bearing in mind the situation in which we began.”

Red Bull and Lotus just off the pace of Ferrari. Kimi beat Lewis's qualifying time of last year by a whisker- on mediums. He did 58 laps. Only Williams and a team or so did a few laps more.

Ricciardo edges Raikkonen on day two in Spain20 Feb 2015

Daniel Ricciardo handed Red Bull a welcome boost by going fastest on this week's second day of pre-season testing in Barcelona.

It was incredibly tight at the top of Friday's timesheet, however, with less than a tenth of a second covering Ricciardo, Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and the Williams of Felipe Massa.

Ultimately the Australian's 1m 24.574s - set on Pirelli's yellow-marked soft tyre - proved enough, with Raikkonen finishing 0.01s and Massa 0.098s down the road.

Sergio Perez was fourth in the year-old Force India VJM07, fractionally ahead of Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton. The two-time world champion had not been expected to drive on day two, but took over for the afternoon session after Nico Rosberg's running was ended as a precaution so as to not aggravate a trapped nerve in his neck, which could have jeopardised his fitness for the final day on Sunday.

Hamilton set his best time on the white-marked medium tyres, but was still able to get within four-tenths of Ricciardo's overall benchmark.

Rosberg's morning left him sixth overall, also within a second of Ricciardo, while Fernando Alonso ended what was McLaren's most productive day so far in 2015 in seventh.

The Spaniard racked up 59 laps in total, even though the team are still waiting for a replacement seal on the MGU-K component of Honda's new power unit.

On his first test for Lotus, 2014 GP2 champion Jolyon Palmer wound up eighth fastest, as Sauber's Marcus Ericsson and Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz Junior rounded out the top 10.

Sainz Jr triggered the red flags shortly after midday when he went off and into the gravel at Turn 9, while Ericsson caused a separate stoppage when he came to a halt on the start-finish line half an hour from the finish.

Testing continues at Barcelona on Saturday.

Unofficial Friday testing times from Barcelona:

1. Daniel Ricciardo, Red Bull, 1m 24.574s, 143 laps

Fernando Alonso has been airlifted to hospital after crashing on the final morning of the second pre-season test at Barcelona.

McLaren said on Twitter that he is "conscious and speaking".

The Spaniard hit the wall on the inside of the track between Turns 3 and 4 shortly before the midday lunch break. Red flags were triggered as a result, with an ambulance also dispatched to the scene. 

Alonso was duly taken to the circuit's medical centre before being transferred to hospital by helicopter for further checks.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was seventh fastest ahead of Nico Hulkenberg - driving the 2014 Force India VJM07 - and Alonso.
 
"First of all, I'd like to wish Fernando a quick recovery," Vettel said. "As for today's test, I can say that we have focused mainly on the car's reliability, completing some long-runs, and testing various settings and tyre configurations. We could not run as much as we'd like, but at this stage of winter testing there are always some teething problems you have to deal with. Overall, I can confirm that my feeling with the car is positive."
 
Alonso managed just 20 laps in total, the fewest of any driver. Rosberg led the way, clocking up 131 for Mercedes.
 
The teams have just three days before the final pre-season test commences at Barcelona on February 26-March 1.

Kyk gelukkig sien ek nie meer sy kak wat hy post nie!! (behalwe as iemand hom quote)

 

Ek persoonlik is nie verbaas Owen maak sulke swak en ongevraagde aanmerkings.... die "wonder of hy nie wou selfmoord pleeg nie" comment is Owen sn.

 

Dit is in uiterse swak styl en n direkte weerspieling van sy algehel gebrek aan enige ordentlikheid.

 

Imagine iemand het gese Schumi wou seker selfmoord pleeg deur kop eerste in n rots vas te duik want hy het geweet hy gaan nooit weer wen nie...

of Bianchi het besluit kom ek ry myself moer toe want ekt het nie die Ferrari dryf gekry nie!!!! dit sou uiters onsensitief en uiters laakbaar gewees het!!

 

Dit is kak soos die wat duidelik weerspieel sy haat vir skere bestuurders .... niemand anders sal so kak aanmerking gemaak het nie.

 

daar is nie woorde om sy comment te regverdig nie..... nog minder kan enige iemand sy kak comment enigsins verdedig nie!

 

 

Res van die posters ..... wat nog oor is..... doen my n guns asb moet nie sy kak quote as julle comment nie want dan moet ek dit ongelukkig sien!!

 

Ek sou dink die is een van die goed wat die admins regtig na moet kyk .... dit ok om vrye spraak te he ens..... maar daar is n lyn!

McLaren racing director Eric Boullier said: "Fernando's accident was just one of those things that happens in testing.

"Fortunately, he's fine, but was concussed during the accident, which therefore required an overnight stay in hospital. That's normal practice.

"Inevitably, some media reports have sought to exaggerate the severity of the incident - it was just a normal testing accident."

 

...................................

Fernando Alonso's manager has revealed that the Spaniard is to undergo further tests following his crash at Barcelona on Sunday.

Speaking to the Spanish media, Luis Garcia Abad confirmed that whilst CT and MRI scans have revealed no cause for concern, the driver, who was concussed in the accident, will undergo further precautionary checks.

At the same time, Abad was keen to play down speculation over the cause of the accident amidst claims that Alonso was allegedly seen, just prior to the crash, with his head to one side of the cockpit.

This has led to claims that the driver was unwell or had even passed out, which in itself had led to speculation as to the cause, including claims that an ERS-related issue could have knocked him out.

"I deny that Fernando was feeling unwell prior to the incident," said Adab. "The car had grip, there was tremendous wind and he went into the wall, the rest is speculation.

"The car telemetry has stated that he was correcting from left to right," he added. "Fernando was hitting the brake and changing gears until the moment of impact."

 

Carlos Sainz, who subsequently crashed at the same corner, blamed the unusually strong winds in the corner, which some now believe could have been a factor inAlonso's accident.
