In a statically typed language you need less test suits since the compiler can do type checking.
Here is an example when test suite is a hard to achive option.
When the site changes it is critical to update the driver ASAP. Fortunately it is not that hard since the browser library continue to work and it is a matter of finding proper places in the new DOM for the data. Unfortunately any delay in that means that someone has to spend time enetering data manually into MSIE. So you simply can not afford time to create test suits which may not be even feasible since effectively you need a copy of the web site to test properly.
