Day 1 afternoon: Maldonado picks up where he left off

At the end, the much expected rain barely made its presence felt at this afternoon’s test in Barcelona.  With a cloudy day and cold conditions,  Pastor Maldonado finished back on top at the end of the day, just like he did during each day at Paul Ricard.

It was very close at the top today, with the top 14 drivers in the same second, and the difference between 1st and 5th just under 3 tenths.

    Good first day from Ericsson considering he hasnt driven this track before.

  2. How can a team that doesn’t have budget to run a GP2 team is going to apply an entry to the 2011 F1 season?

  3. Marcin says:

    They can’t it;s only PR stunt to get more attention from drivers and sponsors. Something like Litespeed, Formtech, etc. last year.

    Am I only one to see a real potential in Rapax Team?! Maybe Maldonado is that last bit that was missing in their game since Piquet time? I really do hope so, like to see underdogs fight big guns… Pastor needs good result.

    Pastor has already driven for Piquet GP (Rapax) before hasn’t he?
