Vitaly Petrov says that Mugello motorsports track is not safe and it’s not enough for Formula 1 testing, he claims Mugello is too dangerous and not suit for grand prix cars.
“I don’t think we should have come here,” said the Caterham driver. “It is not safe and wide enough.
“If you lose it, the walls are so close and you will smash into the tyres. It is not for Formula 1 and, if you lost the steering or the tyre pressure dropped or whatever, then it will be a big crash.”
Mark Webber tweeted after the first day: “Did 10 dry laps today around Mugello, which is the same as doing 1000 laps around Abu Dhabi track in terms of satisfaction.”
Daniel Ricciardo said: “Love driving the beast round here. Awesome high speed circuit.”
