This is only the transcript of the judgement copied from www.fia.com not a transcript of the hearing as implied.

"The entirety of the transcript released by the FIA from the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) hearing into the Renault F1 'Singapore-gate' scandal."

Although I think this was a preplanned crash, the only *evidence* that I see that supports this is the application of throttle during the spin - which by itself doesn't prove anything. The finding of guilt seems to come from a lack of denial, not the proof that it happened. Maybe the people involved are keeping quiet on purpose as to not harm their potential criminal/civil cases?

Point 74 is just unbelievable:
So, we (the WMSC) Max's puppets remind you (Renault F1) that you have the right to appeal your disqualification, but if you do, you are disqualified! :rolleyes:

As the last poster said: no hard evidence whatsoever, only testimonies and conjectures. Even the telemetry only shows that Nelson had an "unusual" response to the loss of control, but that doesn't says it was an order or a conspiracy, heck if Nelson state of mind was so fragile, it could even be a desperate “Lost his mind” mistake (I believe he did it on purpose to crash, just stating that the telemetry only works in context, every race engineer knows that)

Another thing that just hit me: People (FIA included) are being soft on Nelson because “he was on a fragile state of mind, caused by the insecurity of a renewal of his contract” but no one is going soft with Briatore or Symonds because of “the insecurity of Renault's participation on the next year”. That's a huge double standard

And please don't deny that, is pretty much the same situation, just because Nelson is a boy and Flav&Pat are grown men. At Nelson's age you are no longer a boy and are responsible for your actions. Although from this whole mess (and the “executioner rant”) I sure can't call him a man
