Sounds like ol' Alonsfo wants to have his cake and eat it too. He contradicts himself aswell, given testing is more "work" than the race weekend. This just comes back to Ferrari wanting an unfair (in their eye fair) advantage.

Yes, this particular bod is rather well paid - but compare his wage to PDR for instance - the truth is how many of us go to work and lose up to 4 kilo in one week.. yes they are all well paid but i think we take for granted somewhat how much physical effort goes in to it..

Well, you can ask Montoya how much less time he spends in the gym and in simulators now compared to when he was in F1. Actually, you need only take a quick look at him and you'll know there's a big difference.

I think if one or two races were replaced for track testing then I would be all for it. If it were just that we would miss a couple of races then I don't really see how it can be justified.

And where have Ferrari been since the testing ban was introduced? Nowhere. They can't make a good car without loads of testing to iron out all the faults.
