  1. Sadly Bahrain isn’t the most photogenic circuit in the world.. only day one of eight and I’m already bored by these pictures. :/

    1. Perhaps Bernie should convert the third series of test into night one @andae23?

      1. @seahorse I’ve learned it’s best no to give Bernie any idea ;)

    2. @andae23 Well it’s good then the race will be held onder lights.

      1. @force-maikel Meh, I’ve never been a fan of the artificial light either.. let’s just cancel the event altogether, shall we?

    3. I’m the opposite, see. I’ve always loved the pictures from Bahrain. The desert feel makes it quite unique, and the sunset ones look stunning.
      Each to their own I suppose!

      1. @deej92 me too, guess we ain’t on everyone’s bandwagon.

      2. Why the change of heart towards mclarens provisional livery, all the way better than vodafone. I would definitely change the onesies they make But Mag and Vandoorne use.

  2. Is it just me or whether that Force India is running without number 27?

    PS. I am not referring to the driver but the number on the car ;)

  3. That McLaren looks stunning in bare silver, don’t change it McLaren!

  4. That Lotus front is really similar to Caterham’s, with just a second support

  5. In the grey factory the McLaren didn’t look very cool, but on track it looks stunning!

  6. That McLaren has been growing on me every day!

  7. I can’t help liking these new-look cars. Except the Caterham.
    Like the Lotus though.

  8. I’ve just realised how cool the Force India looks with the new paint-job.
    Really feel drawn to the Lotus.

  9. Did anyone else notice that the black on the Mercedes has been edited slightly?

    Anyway, row 5 column 3 (MAG), and bottom row columns 1 and 2 (ALO) – stunning! I’m glad they’re testing in Bahrain instead of Barcelona!
