Minardi will be present 4 days !!!!!Cost cutting measures do not seem to be making much of an impact in the 2004 calendar year as the Formula One teams gear up for another big test. All ten teams will be in action this week at Jerez as they continue development of components for 2005, aerodynamic packages, tyre testing as well as driver assessment.
BMW Williams are the sole team running on Tuesday but are joined by BAR, Ferrari, Red Bull Racing, Jordan, Minardi, Sauber and Toyota on Wednesday. On Thursday Renault and McLaren join the circuit to make it ten teams testing at the Spanish circuit.
Such is the intensity of testing at this time of the year, Toyota will be testing for 12 straight days at Jerez, While McLaren will run for 11 days and Ferrari ten. Minardi and Jordan will test for four days while Sauber will run for just three days.
Are we really getting some proper testing???????:D:D:D:D

By the way: Friesacher said in an interview with the german press that Soddart wants him definitly for 2005...
To Davison and Power, Stoddart said: We'Re happy to help them, although we can't promise a cockpit for 2005.
To Monteiro, i believe it was Minardi, who said: We're happy with you work, you did very well.
But to Friesacher, Stoddart saif that he wants him definitly for 2005 and Friesi is allready in contact with two big austrian enterprises.... so let's see what will happen
Is it known yet WHO will test? It might be another useless rookie who can't give any feedback until the last day.
Still if it is true then it's very positive.
Can only TOIT support all test program? I hope not!;)
I stand by my comment that www.zombo.com is a better source of F1 news than that place...
