The F1 drivers’ representative union, the GPDA, will reportedly inspect Jerez this week before agreeing to conduct up to seven days of testing at the circuit in December.

The Grand Prix Drivers’ Association’s new chairman, Ralf Schumacher, recently slammed the Spanish venue for having too few marshals on duty, as well as providing inadequate fire vehicles and medical facilities.

Jerez subsequently agreed to upgrade its facilities ahead of the pre-season December tests.

The website of Spanish newspaper Diario As reports that the GPDA, headed also by Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso, will conduct a detailed inspection of the circuit before this week’s action kicks off on Wednesday. wrote: “It is not clear what will happen if the inspection, directed by (Toyota) doctor Riccardo Ceccarelli, does not match up with the promises of the circuit.”
