Barcelona day seven 2011

The day’s testing is over. After struggles with the car in the morning, only getting six laps with Trulli, Lotus managed to get it fixed for Kovalainen to do some better runs in the afternoon. Williams’ problems continued, with Barrichello causing two red flags and the KERS system not being used. I almost wonder if they might as well drop it.
The shock of the day was Perez’s super-fast time of 1:21.761, a whole 0.3s faster than Massa’s Ferrari and not resulting from cutting the chicane as his last one did. Red Bull only managed the third-fastest time in a change from the usual routine, with a potentially-comparable run to the Ferrari but not matching the Italian car’s speed.
Toro Rosso spent most of the day – to Autosport Live’s consternation – doing pit stop practice, which meant that Alguersuari had the 10th-fastest time. He was still only 3s off Perez’s time, however – the field is close.
