    Should F1 have more in season testing? Yes, costs will go up, smaller teams won't be able to afford to go etc etc...

    But, wouldn't it be a benefit to the sport?

    Nope. It'd make F1 boring and predictable like it used to be.

    True, but what would you rather?
    Predictable dry races and the odd mistake in wet races?
    Or unpredictable races and the odd mistake in wet races?

    I would prefer in season developments, limited to budgets with testing. As we have seen so far, this season is far from predictable and we do have some in season testing.

    I am not a fan of teams using practice sessions to test new parts etc....there should be a set time table for this. If you miss the deadline then no upgrades.
