Renault last week said they were looking for a full second in performance improvement but BMW has raised the anty and suggested they only need a half second to be with the top teams.

Now color me reactionary but this seems to be a very measured performance battle when the teams, in winter testing, can determine how much they need to be competitive. We often suggest that winter testing reveals very little due to sandbagging etc but BMW and Renault know exactly where they are competitively and how much they need to gain. Given Dr. Mario’s comments, it seems Renault may be behind BMW again this year. ;)

It would be awesoome if somehow Ferrari, Mclian, Bmw, Renault and Williams could all fight for wins at some point. I know it’s unlikely but it would be great to watch.

It will be interesting to watch that first Qualifying session to see where all the teams are. My guess its going to be Ferrari, McLaren then Renault and BMW .
