Analysis: Why the evidence still puts Ferrari comfortably ahead of Mercedes.
ESPN F1 Corner ^ | 2/2/2019 | Laurence Edmunson, F1 Editor

MONTMELO, Spain -- After 64 hours of track time spread over eight days at the Circuit de Catalunya, Ferrari and Mercedes were split by just 0.003 seconds on the final day of preseason testing.

What comes around goes around. I thought the change in tires would be a little more visible.

A Kraut racing for Italy, and a Limey racing for the Krauts. What’s not to like. At least Force India is gone in those hideous pink cars.

Wait a minute... Just checked my Social Security monthly check and realized that buying two would use up most of my check...

I have an Samsung 82" Class Q6FN QLED Smart 4K UHD TV, on the wall, so I'm all set to watch. I looked at Sony's 108", but it was way too big. 220" is a drive-in theater, not a TV. lol.
