    F1 agree that the four testing session will take place in Barcelona, Jerez, Portimao and Bahrain in February & March.

    Good news about Portimao, and also Bahrain. I hope for a good season opener at Sakhir after this years dull race. The same result would be ok though!

    Not happy with the fact that there is two tracks that hold a race in the season. Keeping the amount of tracks same, two of Jerez/Valencia/Aragon, then Portimao and Paul Ricard would be good testing program. In the latter two you can change layout a little so having 4-day tests there should mean something like two days in two different layouts.

    Looks like another Bore-rain then. There are plenty of tracks graded to F1 Testing capability, use those. Just because there might not be one in the Middle East it doesn’t mean we should test at Bahrain.

    Yeah why not motorland aragon? Its a very good test circuit, but then so is catalyuna. However Catalyuna in a F1 car is a (insert swear word here. I’ve forgotten the rules on swearing in this forum and F1 is family viewing. For the PG version place “crummy”) race track. So Aragon for the race?? Please bernie?

    Also if they wanted a middle east test for logistical reasons, hop over the water to Qatar where they have the moto gp night race (which suffers from the same issue as bahrain where its wayyyyy too dusty off line to overtake)

    Are you kidding? If anything it’ll be more dull. With testing at the same track a week before the season opener they’ll all have so much current data on the track it will be a procession for sure. Maybe it’ll rain to shake things up. It rains all the time in Bahrain right? Uugghhhhh. *shakes head in dismay*

    FIA & FOTA with FOM should arrange testing on tracks which aren’t included on the F1 calender.
