Early risers in the paddock have plenty that’s new and interesting to look at.

Porsche and Toyota have ‘privacy boards’ in place in front of their garages today.

Prospeed meanwhile have their older 997 RSR car here too.

Ram’s new livery for their Ferrari 458 looks very good indeed.

Rebellion won’t find out what spec the Lolas will run in at Silverstone until 2 April, the ACO will be looking at eta from the Prologue test before deciding what (if any) restrictor the car will require!

Fabio Leimer is here and ready to go, a race deal with Rebellion looks very likely with some final details to be ironed out, and of course the test this week to come.

Finally for now – We won’t see the Strakka Dome S103 this weekend, the brand new car developed a technical issue and the team have opted to test privately at a later date prior to Silverstone.
