Any pics of F1 testing with slicks?

  1. I want to see them.
     
  2. FOUND ONE!

    man, that looks so odd...

    edit: one more
     
  3. I have an erection.
     
  4. #$%#ing hot.
     
  5. Sweet. Any data on lap times compared to non-slicks?
     
  6. It looks badass
     
  7. Nice shots of the BMW, it looks hot. I hope Kubica wins a race this season.



    Toyota looks gay
     
  8. 1-1.5sec off the pace compared to grooved tyres.
     
  9. that�s exactly how racing tyres should look lile!
     
  10. Why slower?
     
  11. I just made those figures up.

    But they were/are trying to slow the cars down, so I doubt they'd want to be much faster.
     
  12. i thought the same when they introduced the ones they use today. its just a matter of getting something else of what youre used to.
     
  13. that is so much better
     
  14. wait what, slicks are coming back?
     
  15. i hope so! and how are the slicks slower? are the smaller or something? i thought the surface area would provide more grip
     
  16. Because FIA has told Bridgestone to make the tires with less grip than the old grooved tires to slow the cars down.


    Why did anyone think the slicks would be faster? The FIA only wants to slow the cars down and having a single tire supplier makes that really easy.
     
  17. just a question, you dont need to bust out the cynicality on meee
     
  18. Weren't all the times faster with the evaluation slicks in testing?
     
  19. Slicks are slower?! WTF? I will not believe that. I will believe they're MAYBE slower then the grooved tires WITH traction control.
     
  20. they look soooo weird with the straight slicks. but so badass too
     
  21.  
  22. What are u talking about? Why wouldn't we think slicks are faster. Even if they said make a less grip tire. Its still a racing slick. And i don't care what you are saying, as i am confident lap times were improved.
     
  23. I don't like RBR's design as I much as I liked last year's.. Renault looks pretty slick though <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
