F1 » Bell: FIA ruling on McLaren wing 'a complete joke'


Whilst acknowledging that his team will not protest the ruling, Renault technical director Bob Bell has nonetheless slated the FIA as 'irresponsible' for risking another 'arms race' by declaring that the controversial rear wing innovation on McLaren-Mercedes' MP4-25 is legal

Sour Grapes from Bell, they did't have the brains to think of it and now he's whinging.
If F1 is truly the pinnacle of motor sport it needs constant innovation, the FIA costing rules are a joke.

Oh stop the childish whining just because you didn't come up with the idea! The fans are sick to death of the minor political bickering and the first race hasn't even started yet.
Stop the whinging and just get on with what the fans want and that is racing.
F1 is supposed to be the premier motor sport event and designers will try and provide innovative new ideas to gain the upper hand.
Given Renault's recent shenanigan's which was blatant cheating, I ould have thought they would be keeping a low profile.

Ok, so even if this is "against the spirit of F1" is it just me that finds it more than a little bit amusing that it's Renault coming out with this? HELLO! MCFLY! ANYBODY HOME? Driving a horse and cart through the rules? Driving a horse and cart straight into a wall is more their style!!! :D :D

McLaren will be worried that when Ferrari et al copy this feature there will only be 3 teams at the top not 4 as McLaren do not appear to be reaping the reward of their innovation so far.
