Do they still need to stick to the 1 car per testing arrangement? Considering the lac of time it makes sense to at least swap out cars to ensure adjustment time is kept to a minimum

Expense of 8 days of testing is nothing compared to having 2 cars at the same time.

Todt, Tost is in charge at Alpha Tauri :lol:

Didn't Todt bring in and then scrap a maximum term for FIA presidents?

I meant only 1 car on track. 2 in the garage. Swapping parts, loading test equipment etc. And I dont understand all other comments about extra expense. Get a couple more mechanics to do the additional work. I would imagine everything is staying in Bahrain until the race weekend anyway

As VF-21 thread is locked, here is the first screenshot of the new car.

Nose looks the same, as well as airbox, but the sidepods still look pretty bulky with more downwash as we saw on SF21.

Did they run out of colours or something? Should have just used the old colours with pink and purple.
