The Fun Part Of Formula1 Testing
It is pre-season testing time and I hear a lot of fans say that â€˜testing is boring.â€™ Since I am associated with the sport, I do know that testing is important, but I certainly disagree that testing is boring.
Infact, teams can be accused of making the races boring. They rarely ever try new things and use tried and tested setups & body work to maximize their chances for a race win of course. Now you donâ€™t blame them for doing that, do you?
So hereâ€™s my proof of why testing is can be fun too! My twitter friend Alex Comerford (@f1photos) was busy shooting images while the teams were testing in Jerez, Valencia and Barcelona. The images that I am sharing here show how teams try and make F1 interesting.
They use various gadgets to ascertain ride heights, aero efficiency, tyre degradation, etc. A look at the images below will explain my point better.
