Not all teams.
And we currently have very little testing even on fridays, partially because of limited mileage for the engines.
It would be nice if teams where allowed a friday engine that doesnt' count towards their main engines in proper timed sessions. They could test new components and have virtually unlimited laps if they so wanted. It would be a start.
Yes, all teams accepted the ban on unrestricted testing.
Those in existence at the time, and those that joined since.
What an enjoyable post to read
Memory is hazy but I don't think Ferrari was particularly pleased?
But they signed, no?
I think money is hard to resist !
I don't know the circumstances. My guess is ultimatum of some sort, either sign it or use your veto. And they weren't going to use the veto for that...
In the early Schumacher ear, Ferrari was going through ~200 engines (and transmissions) per year in testing; alone.
That is the kind of testing it takes to get ahead.
Mercedes uses a 100 a year on their dyno.
I'm sure Ferrari and Honda are similarly going through a lot of engines...
Want exciting F1? Get rid of FIA!
They ruïned the whole game, from A to Z.
FIA didn't ban the grid girls.
While that may (MAY) make the engines better, it does nothing for the chassis, suspension, and aerodynamics.
Yep....so those engines wasting away on the dyno could be better used in a third development chassis...
