The head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner after his colleague from McLaren Eric bulge supported a change of venue of the pre-season tests in 2019 after a break in Barcelona this week.
“Yes, anywhere would be better than to sit here and wait until the snow melts, – quotes Horner edition F1i. Teams chose Barcelona, because coming here is cheaper, than to carry all the equipment and personnel to Bahrain. But, as you can see, this has led to loss of money and time.
If next year we will have the opportunity to test in warmer climatic conditions, we will do so.
In any other sport there is such a limited program of preparation for the season, as we have. Thus of the eight days of tests we have already lost three and a half. Consequently, the team lost the opportunity to work on resolving problems with reliability, the correction which may take from one to three of the Grand Prix”.
