FASTEST FOR MAD MAX!!!!!!!!! #BLESSED

Chilton posts the fastest time of the Spanish day 1 test, with a time that would have qualified him 4th in Sunday's GP With a 1:26:434, a full 2 tenths in front of Bottas and 2 tenths behind Ricciardo...
Mark my words, Bottas will be world champion by 2020 - Me 24/11/14

He seems quite nifty when it comes to Barcelona. He managed to out-qualify both Bianchi and the two Caterhams.

Max Chilton came first in in-season testing? Next you'll be telling me The Simpsons and Family Guy will appear in a crossover

A lucky escape for Max Chilern! A fan took the photo in this link which shows how close Raikonen's wheel came to hitting his head.

I saw this on Facebook, very lucky lad. How heavy is a tire carcass?

:hehe:

Yes, Chilton certainly seemed a little quiet/stunned when he was out of the car during the red flag period. Indeed, he mentioned what a close shave it was in the post-race interview.

It's a shocking picture, and memories of the Henry Surtees incident come to mind. Lucky it missed this time.

Glad to see he escaped serious injury. Puts to perspective how another drivers' stupidity can endanger other guys out there.

Is this where Chilton's race finishing streak ended? Or was it earlier? I haven't been following too much to be honest....I think it ended earlier this season in the flyaway races?

It finished in Canada after he turned into jules and took both Marussia's out.

Fair play to max for carrying on, he looked a bit stunned sitting on the plastic chair in the pit lane waiting for the restart; he didn't seem to care about the penalty he got either. When a tyre misses your head by a few inches and you had to duck to avoid it AND and 150mph I can imagine that's rattle you slightly.
