F1: Final Winter Test begins, Pirelli gets more Rubber...

So originally I read that the final 2011 Formula 1 “Winter Olympics” had been slid back 1-day and wouldn’t commence until tomorrow, scheduled to run March 9-12. Thus I was a little surprised to read that Mark Webber topped the Timesheets today in Barcelona... Or is that some sorta GMT Timezone conversion thingy? Yet I’d be leery to read too much into these times as the Virgin was nearly 10-seconds off the pace for example...

Also, the FIA has allowed Pirelli to supply all of the F1 Teams additional sets of tyres on Friday Free Practice sessions... We’ll teelz Yuhs ‘Juan week ahead ‘O time and then you might get one different spec tyre for “Evaluation” or you might get one set of extra primes for “Evaluation.” But then you’ve gotta give ‘em back to us before Qualifying... Cornfuzed? I know that I am over the 3-card Tyer Monty, especially since I cannot even see what colour band is on the sidewalls...
