Formula 1 goes quiet

One of the aims of the Christmas testing ban was to enable team members to take some time off to be with their families and in F1 circles things are already beginning to wind down for the festivities. There may be some activity at the F1 factories in the course of the next week, with production schedules for the new cars rarely allowing much time but in general there will be little happening. Most of the F1 team bosses will be off away enjoying a break although one or two can be expected to be seen in their factories on Christmas Day.

"If I sit around for a few hours I get edgy and want to be back in the office," one team boss said to us a few days ago. "So I guess I will be in the office for some of Christmas Day at least."
