With the testing now begun for 2018, I thought I'd revisit some pictures I took from Barcelona testing ten years ago. I can't believe it's been quite that long ago.

Heikki Kovalainen zooms round turn 3

Mark Webber, send any witty comments on a postcard for I have none

Lewis Hamilton, back when he had zero world championships (yet)

Kimi Raikkonen gets a slide on

Nico Rosberg locks up in his Williams

Michael Schumacher made an one off return to test for Ferrari..

.. and here he is with Rob Smedley checking the times..

.. before facing the assembled press.

McLaren practice pit stops with Heikki Kovalainen

Sebastian Vettel pounds round in the Red Bull, he was a Toro Rosso driver at the time but was covering for David Coulthard who had injured his back.

Sebastien Bourdais gets things a bit wrong and beeches his Toro Rosso in the kitty litter

Jenson Button strides away from his Honda, it having caught fire. Fast forward forward a decade and they're now the all conquering Mercedes team.

Giancarlo Fisichella kicks up the dust in his Force India

Robert Kuica, pre mangling of his arm...

.. still looking just as moody though.

I've got more here at FlickR

Really nice pics, Jimz0r, and impressive that you got so close to the action too.
Basically the only difference in Kubica then and now is that he's lost most of his hair.
