Director Haas Gunther Steiner called reasons to go to pre-season tests in Bahrain is not as easy as it seems.
On the background of the weather in Barcelona this week, there was talk that it would be better to be tested in hot countries where rain and snow will not be accurate.
Niki Lauda: And I proposed to carry out winter tests in Bahrain.
“One of the key issues related to the trip to Bahrain, is the cost. It does not forget about the logistics – quoted Steiner edition F1i. – Remember, in 2016 there were discussions about where to hold the tests in Bahrain or Abu Dhabi. Neither the one nor the other option does not suit us, because we just debuted in Formula 1, and the last thing needed in these flights.
Journalists just have no idea how many have to be delivered to the circuit during the tests. In Bahrain need to take all at once. On the one hand, it would be with the same situation, on the other hand, some teams will be chasing the plane there and back, whereas in others this would not be possible”.
