Mark Blundell has just retired from Motorsport. Hands up who knew he was still racing?
( he was in BTCC in 2019, I didn't watch a single race last year)

It has been banned from 2021. Guess Ferrari didn't like it, even though it complies with this years rules.

Ferrari say they are lagging behind rivals Mercedes and Red Bull at the halfway point of pre-season testing.
So they are not sandbagging then, like they have done is most other testing sessions.

difficult to tell. This time last year the Ferraris looked very quick but probably were running light compared to Mercs.
