Teams to agree to new test limit

Autosport.com reports that they hear that with teams favoring keeping each test at a length of three days, especially considering the amount of long-distance running needed at tests to evaluate components for 2005's long-life regulations, agreement has been reached for 10 tests of three day's length. This makes most sense as it can easily be slotted into the gaps in the calendar – and any increase above that limit would actually be quite difficult. The move to 30 days is obviously up on the 24-day limit laid down by team bosses, but should still be a step forward over the mammoth 48-days of testing that the teams conducted during the season in 2004.
