Why should these be separate concepts?


Saturated exposure.

3FP's, 3 phase qualifying, then an hour and three quarts of a race....there will be far less demand for a testing day on a monday(work day), than there would be for a specialised session over 2 or 3 days that can be run in conjunction with DTM/Touring cars/F2/3.

I think a happy medium of the 2 would suffice if there was a real desire to test. Costs of 1.2M per day to rent a race track seems a tad exorbatent to say the least.
More could have been done.
