Ferrari's 3 week test during summer testing ban

Post by Alai » Thu, 04 Aug 2005 01:04:27


While the other teams honour the August testing ban, which has been in
place for five years, Ferrari returned to Monza (Italy) on Monday
morning.
Luca Badoer will be joined by Michael Schuamcher for the following 2
weeks when Ferrari run concurrent tests at Monzo and their private
track in Fiorano to 'prepare tyres for Turkey and Monza.'

Schumacher knows on shame, as his actions at Indy demonstrated. He has
turned Ferrari into Benetton.

end...behind kimi, and in front of alonso :)

Fine that they test in excess of the agreed 30 days because they never
agreed to it - but this August moritorium on testing has been there for
years. This one really is "stepping over the line" IMO. If they end up 2nd
(or even 1st ) in the constructors c'ship it really will be a bit crass.

As much as the unsportingness of it grates, let's remember two things:

1) Formula 1 (indeed, any international, high-profile sport) is a
business, not a sport.

2) How can you all *** about a team not respecting an agreement
which they never had with anyone.

Is the testing ban part of the FIA rules (I guess NOT...else FIA might
take action against Ferrari).
As far as I remember.....every team adhered to the ban last
year......correct me if I am wrong.
Its really shame that Ferrari are back testing in the summer
break......just doesn;t seem right at all. Not accepting the 30 day
testing limit is another thing......but testing in the break is just
simply outrageous. Wonder why the other teams don't make a big deal out
of it to disrepute Ferrari.

Because Ferrari never agreed to start with so they've done absolutely
nothing wrong. Therefore they can hardly disrepute Ferrari, they'd just look
silly.

I think you are confusing the 30 day limit (which Ferrari did not agree
to) and the "Summer Break" which all teams have adhered to (including
Ferrari) for years (as far as I know). By testing during "Summer
break", Ferrari is pretty much just killing any fragments of "good
sportsmanship" that may have existed in F1.

This is exactly what I meant.......
Not adhering to the 30 day ban is a different story.....but then to
start testing
in the Summer break when they traditionally haven't tested before is
simple
unacceptable.
If at all they manage to sneak a win in the remainder of the season (I
hope not)
will indeed be a hollow victory.

Don't be so naive.  F1 is as much a business as it is a sport, and
expecting a team to not take advantage of an opportunity ilike this is
foolish.

FORZA!

As far as I remember Ferrari didn't test in the Summer break last
year.......and if this is the case.....your business opinion is a farce.

There is no "August testing ban" as part of F1.

Just because you have a few teams agreeing to *** off for the
month while more serious times try to actually improve their
cars is not in any way a Ferrari problem.

Sounds like a good idea if they want to perform well.
