Discussion about December (or at least this weeks
) testing at any circuit may it be Algarve, Mugello, or Valencia, may be done so here. This in order to reduce the quantity of threads otherwise produced by having one for each circuit.
Well it seems that Toyota started running at Algarve on Sunday, which is surprising since there has been no mentioning of it as far as I'm aware of. It's possible that they acquired exclusive use of the Portuguese cirtuit for today, as Mclaren did on Saturday. Kamui Kobayashi was at the wheel of the TF109. http://www.f1today.nl/fotos/testsessies ... uari-2009/ http://www.autosport.com/gallery/index.php/id/1574
As for Ferrari changing their test from Algarve to Mugello, it may not turn out to be as wise as they thought it would be. Since weather at the Tuscan circuit isn't ideal, with colder temperatures and fog looming around the region, and rain predicted in the forecast.
Official testing for 2009 starts on Monday, 19 January. On Monday Williams and Renault are scheduled to launch their new cars at the Algarve circuit. And BMW is expected to do the same the following day but in Valencia.
