    I am not sure there are less testing hours than before, but they are more evenly spread: before, only the "rich" teams could afford private testing sessions, now all the teams benefit from them.
    Also we have to consider there are still some official test prior to the season, and during the year, again, enjoyed by all teams.
    With 22 GPs on the calendar next year, (and Liberty wanting 25 !!), I don't think there would be enough time available for testing, if the ban was lifted.
    Only the well-heeled teams would be able to afford a dedicated testing team, with development engineers, and crews on call with drivers to conduct them.
    Again, not all teams have a private track or can fly at short notice to South Africa in the middle of winter.
    Although it is still a bone of contention, let's not forget that the teams themselves welcomed the restriction, on the ground that more races could be added to the calendar it testing was restricted. The trade-off was that the teams get paid more than before. As Ecclestone rightly said, you can sell races to TV channels and advertisers, but you get nothing for testing !

    "nadda" is the operational word.........! I believe there would be possible severe 'social' problems with the current state of dysfunction in the team. That said perhaps all the holes in their feet will mean no more room for more........?!

    I don't know what's happening behind scenes, I'm just seeing what is being said. Piero Ferrari need to have lunch with me instead and we discuss how we can take over back racing.

    There is a lot less testing now. The bottom of the field couldn´t afford testing at all but even the midfielders did more than 4 days of pre-season testing.

    I get that a limit in testing is reasonable but they went too far, IMO. For the big teams is more difficult to recover a bad start and the small ones can´t catch up anyway because they can´t afford complex simulators.

    So ban simulators and bring back real testing in real cars at real tracks . . . . like Fiorano.

    Meanwhile f1 promotes e-sports?
    No chance.

    the logic above fails...if the small companies can’t afford simulators, they sure as **** can’t afford additional track time, parts,crashes, insurance, staff, etc. Simulators are a cheap, safe substitute for racing.

    Yes, clearly your life is packed with excitement and meaning...at least in being overly sensitive to comments on a forum about your idols wardrobe choices.

    And you have some indication about my life?
    No, I have never seen a Bollywood awards show, but what if I did? What’s wrong with that? About as relevant as the BAFTAs lol.

    For the record, I am now judging you...as a thin skinned, humourless, argumentative crybaby.
    Have a nice day! ;)

    its true...my greatest flaw is, I don’t suffer fools well.
    But that’s on me, not on you...you’re doing the best you can, with what little you’ve been given I’m sure.
    All apologies ;)

    Then why did you just PM me with a barrage of insults? All over a harmless joke about Hamilton’s suit? You initiated both conversations with me.
    Go back to your alleged life, deranged weirdo/troll.

    A barrage of insults? I give you permission to post my PM to you with the barrage......because there was not a barrage was there? Only me calling you an idiot.
    Or are you waiting for a few pal's to jump in?
    Edit. Ah just read your pm response with your anti gay/homosexual response to me " blowing my boy friend ", seriously?
    And you have a Tom Selock avitar to? Lol . Bet you dont even realise do you ;)

    At the risk of repeating myself, the ban on testing wasn't imposed on teams, but agreed by them.
    They receive more money that way.

    No, certainly not. It's just one of the many unpleasant aspects of modern F1.
    But teams sometimes moan about it, forgetting they welcomed it in the past under Bernie's regime.
