Testing Not Returning

FIA President Jean Todt's proposals to reintroduce a limited amount of mid-season testing are likely to be rejected by most teams.

Todt's intentions are to allow teams to develop new drivers, as well as develop their current car.

However, most teams feel that this will significantly increase costs, which was the main reason testing was banned in the first place.

McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh has stated that the teams need to think of the smaller teams with lower budgets, as this suggestion would impact them the most.

Ferrari, on the other hand, are backing Todt's plea, claiming that Formula One is the only sport in the World where participants cannot practice!
