F1 – The blindness of the FIA
While the world of Formula 1 is preparing to enter the warm phase of the season with the 12th event on the track of Spa Francorchamps once again want to bring attention to a topic that we consider of vital importance for the survival of Formula 1.

The team is afraid to invest as a young man, unable to perform tests, are faced with many unknowns. At that point, the balance leans toward the experience, “analyzes Gian Carlo Minardi
