What a great result Shows that the new rules have been interpreted by some teams better than others luckily for the spectators the lesser teams have done a better job so far. The result makes Briatores outburst sound like the garbage he and it is and was

Now that the rules have been clarified, watch Button and Barichello shoot out the back of the grid! :p When rules are clear, whether we like to admit it or not, top tier teams will dominate!

I found it more than a coincidence that a team with no "double decker" diffuser got pole immediately after the court appearence.

We all know that things go on behind closed doors. Think about it.

Red Bull knew thier argument over the diffuser would be strengthened if it was obvious there was an advantage there. Seeming slower than the Brawn's in the first two races would prove this.

Why would they do this? If they had won the appeal, Brawn would have to totally re-think thier design, rendering them useless and if Red Bulls race plan had worked, they would have inherited the points from disqualified teams, and also taking out thier closest opposistion in Brawn, Toyota and Williams

Well, we all now know how much difference those diffusers make. After FP2, Alonso was 19th. Overnight, they fitted a new diffuser, and after 3 laps of practice, Alonso went out in qualifying and put it 2nd. After tweeking it even more, I presume that he can go faster.

Given that the RBR and maybe the STR cannot fit new diffusers without a huge redesign, the other 5 teams will surely catch up to the trio of Brawn, Toyota and Williams.

Brawn may still be competitive when the playing field has been levelled, but I have worries about Toyota and Williams.

Should produce even better racing.
