Wishful thinking perhaps? I think some form of limited in season testing will return eventually. Toro Rosso is taking a big risk on Jaime without much real knowledge of how he will handle the car.

It will make for a very odd year in 2010 with 3 new teams who have no ability to test a car that probably won't be competitive out of the gate.  If they were planning to get into a sport with a 45 million cap, they probably won't have the budget to land experienced talent either.

I'm sure the new teams can test next years car at the moment if and when they like, the test ban is on this years team's cars.

Sure, but then none of the current drivers will be able to test the cars, will they?

Now that is interesting though... if next year's rules are the same as this years, it would forbid current teams from testing next year's car in season, where no such limit exists for the new teams.  Maybe they will have an advantage.

Or maybe they'll be getting a lot of secret visits from Ferrari engineers with some 'suggestions'...
