I think the teams need a mid-season break so that they can spend some time with their families. Remember that the team members are human and can and do get tired. All championships have a bit of a break during the season. The BTCC is in its mid-season break at the moment. NASCAR has two or three breaks in their marathon season in their two main series.
the reason the 3 week break is in place is for the team members who go racing as they are so constantly on the go
the truckies are away for 6, 7 days easily over a race weekend before snatching a few hours at the factory and home then on to the next race track
the 3 weeks are welcome and i dont begrudge any of the team members a break
the only thing it does for me is mean i have 3 weekends of planned work :(

The season starts in mid March, and ends in mid October. Thats Seven months on with breaks between, and five months off, with the exception of a few test sessions. Not many people have jobs with that amount of holiday, and get handsomely paid doing so.
Fare enough, race every two weeks. With all the logistics involved i understand that.
