The test drivers in all the F1 teams hardly tested this year!!
Yes, they needed MS because this is Ferrari we are talking about. Badoer and Gene are not good enough to be frontrunners, as they should be.
Also Ferrari knew about the testing ban and still brought in MS, so what?
Did they say they took for granted they would be given permission to test??
And since you have thought about the reason I mentioned, why did you dismiss it?
Here is my take on all of your opinions above, since you seem to be disappointed I did not answer them directly. ALhtough if you would have read my replies you would seen I have already offered my opinion on all of these topics already.
However I will sum them all up in this one reply to you.
They may not have tested a lot but they helped develop the 09 car and know it intimately. THey are not top notch drivers, but they are as good as most other testers. THey could have stepped in and done the job. That's my opinion on your first two statements.
Ferrari knew of the testing ban when they brought in MS, that is what. They never assumed he would be given special treatment, but they have now asked for it.
I dismissed the extraordinary injury to Massa as being unfortunate, but the rules are the rules. I don't think MS out there will present any greated danger then the rookie did last race, and he made it to the end of the race without hurting anyone. Surely MS can do the same.
Is that enough logs for you
