Does F1 need any more pre-season test days?
By:
Mar 2, 2020, 1:52 PM

With a healthy total of 7,744 laps completed by all F1 teams across six days of running, and with reliability near-bulletproof, it seems the reduction in test days this year was barely noticable. With cost-cutting a key component of the 2021 regulations, could F1 get away with cutting back on its pre-season test days even further?

As is tradition following Formula 1's pre-season testing programme in Barcelona, the gap to Melbourne will be spent trying to make sense of the pecking order.

General consensus suggests Mercedes is the team to beat at the front, while the midfield gaggle remains hard to confidently predict, continuing from last year's tight battle.
