    I am actually really satisfied with the test line-up; it appears to me that the teams aren’t abusing the rules allowing them to run race drivers, so in essence, the original idea of the YDT is still intact and young talent is being allowed to show the F1 paddock how good they can be.

    Glad to see Toro Rosso testing Kvyat. Might there be a chance we’ll have TWO Russians on the grid in the near future?
