The season hasn't started yet, but controversy has already erupted in Formula 1 . On the eve of the winter tests, the doyen of drivers Fernando Alonso is listening to those who have decided to have only three days of testing before the championship, three days in which all the teams can field only one car on the track, and thus, done, he brings the riders out on track for a session and a half. The Spanish driver, who in the past had much more time to carry out tests, proposes changes to the current test format, which will also be held this year in Bahrain.

Alonso is not attending these only three days of testing, which do not give the drivers the opportunity to fine-tune their car and find a balance with the new single-seater. “In Bahrain we will have very limited testing and I've been thinking about this all winter. How unfair it is to have only a day and a half of activity for each rider to prepare for a world championship. It doesn't exist in any other sport. in the world, with all the money that goes around, the marketing and the nice things we say about Formula 1, how much closer it is to the fans.”

The two-time world champion who will also race with Aston Martin in 2024, and who still doesn't know what he will do for next season, whether he will continue in Formula 1 or whether perhaps he will replace Hamilton, continued: “I don't understand why We're not going to Bahrain for four days, it could be two days each for each driver. And I don't understand why we can't go there with two cars , given that we'll already be in Bahrain and ready to race the following week.”
