Formula 1 testing to be limited to Europe 21 June, 2014 Jerez testing Formula 1 teams have agreed that testing will be confined to Europe next year, after two tests in Bahrain before the start of this season, as part of newly agreed cost saving measures. “We spent quite a while talking about things and so on and we’ve agreed on a couple of things next year which will save money,” Red Bull Principal Christian Horner told reporters at the Austrian Grand Prix on Friday. “Testing is reduced. Testing will be in Europe rather than overseas, wind tunnel time and CFD (computation fluid dynamics) ratios have been further reduced.” he said. Most of the pre-season testing is likely to take place in Spain next year, with the Barcelona and Jerez circuits the traditional venues. Horner said everything that was agreed in a Formula One Commission meeting on Wednesday had been done so unanimously. Sauber Principal Monisha Kaltenborn said the teams had not gone far enough, however. “We are clearly not there, where we should be and where we wanted to be,” she said. “I also don’t think we have achieved so far any measurable cost cutting.” (Reuters) Tweet Related NewsVettel first Ferrari test not breach of contractYas Marina Test Day 1: Bottas tops as McLaren Honda flopsRed Bull play hardball block Vettel’s Ferrari testMcLaren-Honda aiming for Abu Dhabi testRed Bull confirm Sainz for Abu Dhabi testF3 champion Ocon impresses Ferrari in F1 testDTM champion Wittmann awarded Toro Rosso testFong and Nissany to test a Sauber in ValenciaF3 champion Ocon to test for LotusMcLaren planning private Honda tests?
