@DamienO: I think initially he lost the wing somewhere out on track, as some are saying he went out with a front wing and returned without.
Some sort of Red Bull voodoo going on today.
@ImaRedBull: Not at the moment, just it's new testing livery.
@aznaz: When there is an update to give you, I will. All quiet on the Woking front so far.
@ImaRedBull: Not at the moment. Hamilton was running with a large amount of it on the rear of his W06 Hybrid earlier.
@AngrymanXIII: Yes, but last year's Ferrari had a very unpredictable front end which left Raikkonen second-guessing the car under braking. James Allison reckons this year's car suits the Finn much better.
Good to see F1 continuing to push new things on its app. This time last year there was next to nothing on there.
@Deadlyfatcow: Yesterday was an encouraging start but we're a long way away from being in a position where we can accurately predict how the smaller teams will fare. I'd say a clearer picture will emerge in Barcelona.
@SD: Not a championship-winning car, no, not that early. He'll have to be patient this year but there's no reason to think Honda can't win a race or two if it sorts these early issues out before we leave Jerez.
For whoever asked earlier...
Maldonado completes his and the E23's first flying lap - a 1:39.488. Obviously that will improve as the session continues.
Maldonado shaves three seconds off that time with his next lap as he starts to get the feel for his new toy.
@Selva: Nothing 'fishy', no. I think some people are reading too much into the headline times. Every team is doing something different and focusing on something different - for example, Mercedes yesterday was only interested in mileage. We don't know fuel loads, engine modes etc, so a lot of what you see needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.
@Ferrari: See my comment below. For obvious reasons the teams don't share information like fuel loads with the media or their rivals.
@AAX: A lot of conjecture and rumour, but nothing concrete. You have to be careful of the sheer amount of nonsense F1 websites out there which operate as 'clickbait'.
@Selva: Well low fuel would explain it but there's a whole host of things at play here. At the moment, from my perspective, Mercedes looks like its stayed at the top of the pile but we won't really start to see a clear picture of what's going on until Barcelona - that circuit is much more comparable to other circuits on the race track, Jerez is not. Jerez is good for accumulating mileage and getting the early shakedowns of the car completed.
Maldonado, still sixth, returns to the pits after completing a handful of laps.
Kvyat out again without a front wing so I would wager Red Bull does not have a spare to replace the one he damaged earlier. Improvisation at its finest.
@WayneCammidge: It's getting better slowly, but F1 still doesn't seem to understand the world of opportunities available to the new mobile generation.
Having covered the Jerez tests last year, it shows how far the V6 turbo era has come in such a short space of time that we are not having a red flag every hour. Last year cars were braking down left right and centre.
@SD: They would have had a benchmark to aim for from last year, but there's no substitute to actually completing running on track and accumulating mileage on an engine. It's only then you understand everything about the packaging of the engine and the way it works, so I would say a slow start was inevitable. It's how quickly McLaren can catch up and learn on the job which will be key later this month.
