Williams set to scrap test team?

Williams set to scrap test team
Test teams a casualty of cost cutting regs?

A testing ban in place from the Australian Grand Prix
Williams is preparing to scrap its test team, according to reports.

The Dutch portal f1today.nl quoted an unnamed mechanic, based at the British team's Grove headquarters, as saying the test team is expected to be wound up.

The news is almost certainly a reaction to F1's radical cost cutting reforms, including the total banning of in-season circuit testing from 2009.

The Williams test mechanic said: "We are open to (getting jobs with) all the other Formula One teams and also to other categories in Europe.

He said the news is "not official yet" but "only a matter of time."

It is reported that, beginning next month, Williams' test activities will instead be handled by members of the race team.
