Every year I go to pre-season testing and enjoy a couple of days of watching the new cars in action. It's interesting to see the cars live and there are always subtle nuances that you can pick up with a trained eye that you can't really see on television.
With testing now being repeated annually at the Circuit de Catalunya, I've also now got my favourite watching spots, which I go back to year after year because it gives me a good reference to see how things have changed from the previous season, as well as contrasting the cars relative to each other.
Before I go into the details of what I saw, I've got to say that my overriding feeling from testing is that the cars are getting a bit too good and comfortable for the drivers. When every car on the grid can take Turns 3 and 9 without the drivers thinking about a lift off the throttle, that's wrong.
