Martin Brundle again proves himself to be the best voice of logic and common sense within the topflight of Motor Sport. The greater shame is that it won't be him replacing Mad Max next month. The whole outcome and ludicrously low penalty imposed on Renault smacks of Pro-French early intervention by the next top FIA incumbant - one Jean Todt - whose impending period of Chairmanship will make a come back Max campaign an early likelihood! I say - Vote Vatenan!!

Once again, Martin hits it right on the head. A very balanced report and summary from perhaps the most respected and best placed pundit around. He's honest enough to call it as it is, he's been there and worked for him. A great article.

Brundle has effectively, once again, summed up most of our fellings about this! Sure, every sport needs the colorful villian such as Flavio. Someone who bucks the boat and goes against the grain in order to get what he wants. But Flavio was an arrogant s.o.b. whose ego got in the way of good judgement. He couldn't see any other way to get what he wanted, so he cheated. Symonds isn't innocent either, but how much of this was his idea and how much of it was Flavio's? As far a nelsinho goes...he needs a shot of maturity right in his butt cheek.
Someone will need to step up as the "guy you love to hate" in the near future or F1 will become about as exciting as watching paint dry.

One of the things I find offensive about this judgement is that Renault have agreed to pay an undisclosed sum to an FIA run charity. Why not disclose it? If the FIA had fined them instead of taking a charitable donation, what would the FIA do with the money? Where was the Mclaren 100 million spent? What does the FIA charity spend its money on? Does it make donations to people injured in road accidents? Does it use it for political lobbying? Does it finance university research projects into road safety? Or does it pay huge amounts in "expenses" to its directors and trustees?

The FIA is probably full of Freemason's, so they'll be syphoning off the 100 million euros, just as Freemason's suck money from companies/organisations wherever they are.
