Predict the lap time for Mercedes & McLaren in final Barcelona F1 test
Posted By: James Allen  |  09 Mar 2011   |  11:30 am GMT  |  215 comments

The final test session of the 2011 pre-season continues this morning in Barcelona. The test lasts five days, of which the teams are allowed to do four days running with a single car.

It’s a crucial test for both Mercedes and McLaren, who would normally expect to be competing against Red Bull and Ferrari, but who appear to be behind after the tests so far. With extensive updates to their cars, this has to be the week when they close the gap to the pace setters.


McLaren was on track yesterday and will have a break tomorrow, while Mercedes hit the track today for four days of running.

Predict the fastest lap time by a McLaren or Mercedes car this week and win a signed copy of the JA on F1 2010 yearbook. We only have a few copies left, so if you didn’t get one yet, now’s your chance. The first person to accurately predict the fastest time by a McLaren driver and the first person to guess the fastest Mercedes time of the week, both will get a signed copy.

Put your guesses down in the comments sections below. Will they be going for a lap time on new tyres and low fuel, or will they lay their cards close to their chests?

For reference, McLaren did a 1m 22.910s lap yesterday, while Mercedes’ fastest from the last Barcelona test was 1m 23.168. Meanwhile Red Bull has set the fastest time of the test so far with 1m 22.544s.

Entries close at 8am UK time on Saturday 12th March 2011, when the final day’s testing begins.

    McLaren – 1m 21.560
    Mercedes- 1m 21.951

    1. Chris says:

      Mercedes: 1 day 17 hours 1 minute 22.842s
      McLaren: 1 minute 22.542

      Where’s my book?

    2. JJ MUPPET says:

      Mclaren – 1m 22.490

      Mercedes – 1m 22.660

      Great Idea This :<)

      If I win I am getting Mark to also sign mine, I can not wait for the Brit GP & Monaco, I can not get to the far away races though :<( too expensive.

      Now let us all pray Mclaren are sandbagging???

    Ill go against the trend and say

    Mercedes 1:21.80

    McClaren 1:22.30

    I’ll predict a late 1:20.80 from Redbull as I still think they can go a lot faster before the end of the final test.

    James, have you a prediction on Redbull’s fastest time this week?

    1. James Allen says:

      High 1m 21s, is my guess.

      1. Chris Hobbs says:

        James – Seb’s already put in 1:21.865 by lunchtime today. Could we see mid-1:21′s…

  66. Richard says:

    McLaren 1:22.051
    Mercedes 1:22.391

    How much precision is going to be required to be deemed “correct”, James? Nearest hundredth?

    It seems to me that any finer than that and the best strategy would just be to wait until the end of today, enter the actual times, and hope that the rain in Spain falls mainly on the Circuit de Catalunya.

    sorry i wrote the wrong time

    Mclaren 1.22.106
    Mercedes 1.22.985

  89. Luke A says:

    James, I just thought, there should be a rule to stop people posting a time that McLaren have actually set, after it has been set. As lets say Hamilton sets a 1.21.305 later on today, it would be unfair if someone then posted that exact time as their entry, even though they might go quicker on Friday or Saturday, it would still possibly be their fastest time and thus would entail an unfair entry in my opinion.

    Agreed?

    1. James Allen says:

      I understand the point, but the entries close at 8am Saturday before the last day’s testing and you don’t know whether they’ll go faster or not, that’s the guess you have to make. Also the standard of prediction is so high here that there’s a chance that if someone waits until a time has been set to write it down, it could already have been logged by someone else.

  134. Born 1950 says:

    I’ll wait until the end of Friday testing before submitting my predictions.

    I’m assuming everyone can only have one guess, James? If so you lot wouldn’t make very good strategists; generally it’s wise to leave decisions as late as possible in order to maximise data-gathering.

    BTW thanks for the link to the pics of the Mclaren front-wing active test rig, James. IMHO there’s a lot going on under that cist on the nose! It won’t surprise me at all if they don’t come out top in this testing, but then suddenly improve by half a second on their predicted times in Australia.

    1. Born 1950 says:

      Oh and BTW! Is there any on-board footage available of the Maclaren running with its FW test rig? A long shot I know, but I’d love to see what they’re doing. Clearly the front and rear stays on each wing-end enable them to twist it to change the angle of attack. Fascinating stuff!

    2. James Allen says:

      Ah but the winner is the one who gets there first..

      1. Born 1950 says:

        Agreed – but if we’re going down to thousandths (as it seems many have) there’ll need to be a lot of entries before we run out of unique times. I suppose if I decide to be really anal, I could produce a list of all the predicted times and then put my prediction bang in the middle of the biggest gap in the most likely area. However, maybe this is not sporting, and it does require a bit of work on my part, so I probably won’t.

    1. B Martin says:

      James, perhaps since rain was due for Sat, you should have made sure people had to pick the time before it happens. Otherwise the first guy to copy and past Friday’s time wins.

    Have you the wheater forecast

  188. Born 1950 says:

    Well, I reckon ‘CC’ has won it — unless someone predicted those times before he did. However just in case there’s a window of opportunity tomorrow before the rain sets in I’ll go for McLaren 1:22.793.

  189. Mark Hillyard says:

    Hoping for a dry final day so i’ll go for:

    McLaren: 1:22.672
    Mercedes: 1:21.053

  190. Robert Gunning says:

    Fastest Mercedes time: 1:21.249
    Fastest McLaren time: 1m22.888

    No records will be broken on the final day, as heavy rain is forecast.

    1. Richard says:

      Sorry, I had already predicted the McLaren time after the Wednesday session. With them already planning not to run on Thursday and the forecast already suggesting it was going to be wet from Friday lunchtime it seemed like a safe bet.
