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
Its still only 1 car allowed
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
Nope only once chassis/car is allowed for the teams to bring to testing

The last afternoon has all of the giants on track together. Hamilton, Verstappen, Alonso, Vettel, Ricciardo and Russell. I know they won't be racing, sadly, but I'll be nice to see those names on the sheets together. =D>

Sorry to be dumb, what time does testing start? Websites say 7am, and googling the time in Bahrain it says it’s like 9am?? Am I missing something?
