    Low fuel, soft tyres and wanting to prove a point.

    Everyone else doing it for the team, not themselves.

    “The DAS system is something we considered in the past but we didn’t design and develop,” Binotto said. “The reason, first, is merely a legality matter, which we didn’t clarify with the FIA at the time. Second, we believe it is not worthwhile for our car and our car concept. We are looking at what the others doing. At the moment it is really a question mark. I’m not sure we will develop it."

    Did Kubica change the tyres? He posted the time in the morning and everyone was doing race simulations in the afternoon. There is nothing out of the ordinary besides PP confusion on how testing works.

    I wonder if this is going to affect the GP ?
    "PM initiates emergency response plan as Australia prepares for global pandemic"
    If there are travel bans or quarantine times applied to flights from the UK or Italy, its unlikely the teams will come to Melbourne.

    Yep - an unmitigated disaster - NOT!
    * 23 confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Australia: 8 in Queensland; 4 in NSW; 7 in Victoria; 3 in South Australia; 1 in Western Australia.
    * 15 of these cases are reported to have recovered. The remaining cases are in a stable condition.

    The PM also said.

    "There is no need for us to be moving to stopping mass gatherings of people."
    "You can still go to the football and the cricket and play with your friends down the street, you can go to the concert and you can go out for a Chinese meal."
    "You can do all of these things because Australia has acted quickly, Australia has gone ahead of this at this point in time."

    Why would there be travel bans from the UK? Italy maybe but most of the team is in Spain at the moment they can fly directly here once testing is done.

    Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari's new Formula 1 car is "a bit draggy", causing it to trail its rivals for straightline speed through pre-season testing.Vettel completed his final extended run in the 2020 Ferrari car on Thursday before the start of the season, racking up 144 laps as he set the fastest time of the day.
    But Vettel's time was still more than a second slower than the best overall lap of testing, set by Mercedes rival Valtteri Bottas last week.
    Ferrari has downplay its chances in the early part of the season throughout testing, saying it is a step behind Mercedes and Red Bull.
    The team placed a focus on improving the cornering ability of the new car - something it struggled with last year - but its straightline speed has been compromised as a result.
    Asked by Autosport about the car's cornering performance, Vettel explained that while the car had improved in this area, it was now on the back-foot on straightline speed.
    "We can feel the car is better, I think sector three feels better," Vettel said.
    "We also know that it does come with a trade. We still have some work to do, we are slower than we want down the straights because we are a bit draggy.
    "We are aware of that, but the objective was to put more downforce on the car which I think we did.
    "Sector three does feel better, but obviously getting out of sector three and down to Turn 1 doesn't feel as good as last year.
    "Certainly in the corners is where you feel the difference, and where we improved, but it looks like others are even a bit faster."
