Jonathan NobleF1's brutal nature laid bare by Williams's plight Williams's efforts to hastily build its car were - understandably - overlooked because it missed the first two days of testing. It found out the hard way that anything less than perfection can quickly be exposed as a major weakness in F1 1550793600 F1

Gary AndersonGary Anderson ranks the teams after test one The 'actual' lap times in Formula 1 testing rarely reveal the true story, so we've delved into the data and factored in tyre choices and adjusted fuel loads to attempt to rank how the 10 teams actually stand at the end of week one 1550793600 F1

Testing analysis10 things we've learned from the first F1 test Possible problems at Mercedes, cars getting quicker despite rule changes that should've slowed them, bargeboards become the tech headlines and Honda is happy - here are the main talking points from the first Formula 1 test of 2019 1550793600 F1

Technical analysisHow F1 teams create a third of their performance F1's simpler 2019 front wings have received plenty of attention during the first week of pre-season testing, but the reduced impact of that part means teams' bargeboard arrangements are now a key area for aerodynamic gains 1550707200 F1

Gary AndersonWhat the FW42 reveals about Williams's plight The 2019 Williams challenger finally hit the track after two and half days of Formula 1 testing had passed by. The new car looks basic compared to its rivals, but it has potential if the team makes the right developments 1550620800 F1

Gary AndersonRating the 2019 F1 grid from trackside With the first Formula 1 test of 2019 already heading rapidly for its conclusion, Gary Anderson headed trackside at Barcelona to see just what the new cars look like in full action 1550620800 F1
