I think the position of the logos on the helmet is similar to that of the test drivers' and Jenson's. That might be what caused you to do a double take on that.

I believe Jenson and Lewis are both sitting this one out.

Yeah that's what the reports were saying. that's why i asked if i missed something. lol


also, what's up with that black screen when they were pushing one of the McLarens back? trying to hide a new upgrade?

Yeah that's what I'm hoping. from the way Button was talking, the rear of the car was never there. Even Lewis said at one point he couldn't get past the Ferraris. Now that's saying something IMO. Hopefully they get it figured out and can bring the season back. They have the best car, or at least did at the beginning of the season.

During the week of Mugello test, HRT has moved to their new facility in Caja Mágica in Madrid. Regardless how much I dis-like the team, and how slow they literally are. But I'd say this is a proper ground work to make sure the team can move forward (per-se). Catarham also moved to a new facility during winter break. Hope they do well in the future and challenge the mid-pack.

People give HRT a hard time today, but to be 107% within Red Bulls McLarens and Ferraris is still pretty impressive when you think about it. At least they're not 30 seconds off the pace and 40mph slower than everyone else like the Life car was in the 90s.

That Life car did not even belong in Formula 3000.
