Published by Mr. C

Psst. Don't tell Christine, but I've sneaked into the Silverstone test a day earlier than her.

A number of cars have done installation laps and returned to the pits. All is quiet at the moment. The sky is clear and the sun damn hot. Below are a couple of pics to start the day off. I'll add some more as and when. If you're in the area, please yell, also if you have any questions / photo requests I'll do me best to check back frequently.

Update: 10:15am - Plenty of action now on track. Today we have:

  • Nico for Williams
  • Kobayashi for Toyota
  • Kovi for McLaren
  • Vettel for STR
  • Liuzzi for Force India
  • Jenson for Honda
  • Massa for Ferrari
  • Kubica for BMW
  • Webber for RBR
  • Piquet for Renault

As I write Kovi is fastest ahead of Massa and Kubica. Force India are not running the rumoured shark fin as yet. Piquet managed one installation lap, but has failed to return to the track. Robert just made a hash of his pit entry spinning dramatically with a full 360.
