So, the Formula One 2005 season has just finished, but, when, where and which teams will
be testing in October, November and December 2005 for the Formula One 2006 season ?

It will be interesting to see which ( new ) drivers will make their appearance at what team.

Anyone with information or ideas and thoughts on this subject ?

As far as i read Ferrari and Williams will not honor the ban. This is good for Ferrari because they will know better how much the car sucks. Unlike McLaren, Williams is willing to cooperate with Ferrari and Toyota and this will be good for all tree teams.

"unlike McLaren" ?? That I don't quite understand. Williams, Toyota and Ferrari will all be on Bridgestone next year, so I can sort of see why they pull in the same direction, but why would McLaren support them in breaching the testing agreement?

He probably suggests that McLaren didn't want to cooperate with Ferrari when they were on Bridgestones pre-2002.

Oh, I'm not sure who didn't want to co-operate with who though...

Because neither team has a bitter, arrogant, paranoid asshole as a team principle. :wave:

I think the schedule is pretty much that Karlth, wawawa or someone of their technical ilk will start a thread on the first day of testing entitled "Winter 05/06 testing thread" which will balloon to about 40 pages until Bahrain next year. Ah yes, the good old off season testing thread.

BTW Ferrari will begin the shenanigans on Oct 26th at vallelunga. See you there, so to speak.

edit - also, probably as if to show just how commited they are to getting back on top, Schumacher will forfeit his usual 23 months of holiday and according to RAI will test with the V8 in Bahrain on Nov 24.

You forgot to add that a particular team will run strongly during winter testing. A poster will comment about said team and that they look good for the coming season while another reply will come back like so:
IT IS JUST WINTER TESTING

This will fill up most of those 40 pages
Enjoy :p :lol:
