Tost says Barcelona test is a waste of money

Toro Rosso Team Principal Franz Tost has blasted the current testing session in Barcelona, deeming it a waste of money and resources.

Speaking to the media on the first day of the second  in-season test taking place in Spain (the first happened in Bahrain after that country’s grand prix) Tost said, we have a test here in Barcelona and in my eyes it’s a totally useless spend of money, because what do we bring in?”

“We bring a car, an extra car, we bring in extra people. We are running here for two days and each kilometre in Formula 1 costs you three or four hundred euros or even more and if you calculate all this at the end we have spent a lot of money,” he revealed.

“I think we should find now a way with the Technical Regulations and the Sporting Regulations to cut the costs,” he added. (GP247)
