I think it's up to the FIA to figure out a way to make sure the teams arrive with a minimum of preparation. You can't have teams shaking down their cars in free practice. I mean, the term mobile chicane is often used unfairly, but that's what it was..
Make the last day of testing mandatory, make a day of testing mandatory, even if that means missing the first GP, or something..
It's not good for HRT, or F1, to be ridiculed on TV.. seeing the guys struggling to fit the nosecone on the car, grind some carbon fiber off, try again, etc.. everyone would be much better off if they could have shipped all that stuff to Sepang, and have a proper day of testing/shakedown, IMO.
Ok let's say that during the practices of the first race they really are a mobile chicane. And i ask you. What's bloody wrong with that? Who cares?
Not good for F1? What harm does F1 get exactly? OMG! a car broke during practice!!! Call the police!! The image of F1 is eternally ruined! I mean we had people crushing into others and getting championships, we had people crushing into walls and fixing races, we even had an FIA president getting some nice orgy headlines and we currently have an old man running to prove he isn't tax eventing and paying people under the table. Of course all that are easy to forget. But an HRT BREAKING? DAMN!!!!!! WE ARE RUINED!!
