I'd buy a Red Bull hoodie, but it's nearly £65! I might just make my own :p:

I just saw the f1 advert, couldnt help thinking this season was a forgone conclusion with ferrari winning both championships! I got all my merchandise on order! I cant help but think what a mess this season is already, with the whole campos and usf1 debarcle, i feel if usf1 couldnt get in, why cant stefan gp get in? People have paid very high ticket prices to see 26drives, and now there will only be 24drives, and im not sure if campos will make it to the first race as they havnt even tested yet, so fans at bahrain may only see 22drivers

For those who are interested the F1 teams are still testing at our grounds today. Haven't got a scooby doo what they're doing but they're making a (nice) racket. Can anyone clear up the exact rules? I thought they could only test on the official days but obviously not. They also tested during the season in the autumn. I don't know if they were done on GP2 tyres or not but they were 100% F1 cars.

I dont think they will be testing.

They can only test on allocated days, and throughout the season they can complete a few striaght line tests, they can let a reserve driver test if he is going to race, and hasn't drove for two years, and they have limited mileage to film TV commercials.

If you are so insistent on them still running, they they will probably be filming for TV, but when they do film.

And with the amount of F1 sites i read, so often, and with them reporting on every minute of the testing, tv filming or whatever, i havnt read anything, so its pretty unlikely its any.

You should take pictures/video and post it to every F1 reporter in the country who is itching to claim the next scoop and you could be the beginning of the new 'testgate' scandal!

Remember to post on here first though as we on TSR did give you the low down and you know, we are awaiting the next scoop!

I would love to have your view of Catalunya circuit!

Yes, hopefully it is Fezza and in particular Alonso.

He seems to be involved in all the gates. Obviously not casting any aspersions here or anything...!

He does seem to be around a lot of gates ... but yes, I think they're due one now!

I would LOVE to take photos but unfortunately we're completely banned from having cameras at work, even phone cameras. They have airport style security and we have to hand in any at the gate to collect at the end of the day. Oh and I had to sign secrecy document :ninja:

TBH it's not for the benefit of the F1 cars it's more for the new road cars that get tested here and they don't want any details leaked.

e.g. check out this beauty, it was taken just outside our track. Mclaren MP4-12C. Note the weird paint job, it's so spy cameras can't take pics when it's moving



It's seems to be common inside knowledge that they do extra testing though because it's not just one or 2 cars but pretty much all the teams (at least from what I've seen). I'm not convinced any rules have been broken and they've probably found a loophole. I know this year the rules have changed so that they can test on non championship tracks with drivers who've had 2 races or less. I'm trying to find out from the guys here what the exact rules are and if we're aiding the teams in breaking them. :rolleyes:
