Too logical OutsiderUK, and in any case would conflict with the full moon rule. The teams would have to exceed their quota of virgin sacrifices on at least 6 occasions in 2014 and that would play havoc with the grid girl assignments. Better to keep it simple!

A typical "committee" decision - chock full of unnecessary over-complications.

Why couldn't they (FIA) simply specifiy four test session dates, to follow the GP, as Outsider says, and open to all the teams - without restrictions on what they can do - the expense is already there for the test,so allow the teams to maximise the return on that expense - it's called "value for money".

OutsiderUK: Surely if you allowed teams to test straight after a GP that would help to keep costs down as they would already be there and set up,therefore no additional transport costs.

They can still do that, 36 hours is only a day and a half. That's enough time to give the teams a well-earned break after a chaotic weekend without having to dismantle everything.
