Gary Paffett Finishes 3rd day of Testing in Jerez in 3rd plus Testing Analysis

Gary Paffett posted a 1:18.746 fastest lap time in Jerez, Spain on Thursday 3rd December, which was the 3rd fastest of the day, just 1/10th of a second behind Paul Di Resta in the Force India at 1:18.736. However, both were blown away by Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull who drove a very impressive 1:17.418 to top the fastest laps table for the day. In fact, Ricciardo’s fastest lap on day 3 was the fastest of the whole 3 day testing session.

For a bit of fun, and flawed in a few ways, I decided to look at the placings achieved each day and award points based on most for 1st, and least for last place. Only the fastest driver for a team counts where they have more than one driver. It tots up as follows for the 3 day testing session:

Who's that in first?

Look at that, McLaren in first – let’s hope that the post-season testing of the MP4-24 is mirrored when McLaren start testing the MP4-25 next year.

      I have to admit that the idea of the table idea only came to me when I realised there was a good chance that McLaren would top it 😀
