Diego’s View of Barcelona F1 Test: Day 4


And we’re down to our last post of the 24-hour F1 Barcelona photo marathon.

There’s not much to add at this point other than testing is not what it used to be in the past when legendary test drivers ruled circuits around the world. Then came the simulators and ruined everything, at least for the average fan.

F1 no longer visits places like Jerez, Estoril or Kyalami, part of the aura of the sport is gone with the digital age. Although it’s probably inevitable: times do change, so do our habits, judging by the meagre crowd in the grandstands.

The technology is so advanced that they don’t need testing any more, to tell the truth.
