the FIA need to mandate that a young driver test is for drivers who have never driven a F1 car or have done under X kms. That's the whole point. It's to give the young guys a chance to impress and get a feel for one of these beasts. Surely it's not that difficult to regulate?
Paffett has been in F1 since 2005 (that I can find) - certainly does not qualify for this. Age has nothing to do with it. You can be 80 and still qualify if you've never driven, or had limit running, in an F1 car.
Edit: I've clearly taken umbrage with this Paffett situation. Apologies to Paffett, he's not focus, it's the FIA and the teams for allowing it. It's hard enough to get into F1 without having the governing body going against you too. Again and again, the FIA show a lack of leadership and pathetic regulation governance.
