F1 Testing – Day 3 in Jerez has Sebastian Vettel out in his shiny new purple-tinged Red Bull and Kimi Raikkonen out in the new black and gold (and red) Lotus.

With a lot of the focus on two of the biggest names in the sport, Mercedes are enjoying a quieter, trouble-free day so far after Hamilton’s crash (brake failure) yesterday and Nico’s fire on Tuesday.

For those wondering, Fernando Alonso isn’t present in Jerez, the official word is that he’s taking more time out in preparation for the 2013 championship, although Badger believes that it’s more to do with the fact that he’s not a fan of the Jerez circuit and he’s probably happy to let Massa do the early legwork.

Octane Photos are out in Jerez for Badger GP and have just sent us a load of images from the 3rd day of running… Enjoy.
