Live from Jerez

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

F1 testing resumes on Wednesday as ten teams head to Jerez for the second session of the year.

This is the first F1 test I’m going to this year and I intend to post live updates from the event here and on Twitter.

This will be the first time I’ve visited an F1 event like this in an official media capacity. I’ll have a lot of “learning the ropes” to do so I don’t want to promise I’ll be able to do lots of things which later turn out to be impossible.

But at the same time I want to make sure I get as much useful information from the test as possible to share with the rest of you.

Testing has had a lot more coverage this year than usual, thanks to the combination of Michael Schumacher’s return, the all-British line-up at McLaren and Fernando Alonso’s switch to Ferrari.

There are some who feel the amount of attention being given to testing is excessive and not helpful. Certainly some people seem to be fixating on early lap times in a manner which we know from past experience is not a reliable way of judging performance.

So, to help me decide how to prioritise my time at the track, I’d like to know what you’re interested in seeing from the tests. Lap times? Lots of pictures? Interviews with drivers and team members?

Leave a comment below and look out for the live testing coverage starting on Wednesday.

And yes, I have packed a raincoat…
