oh dear here we go.

FIA going in with half a brain. How will this make the racing better singling out 3 teams? It won't.

If they want to improve the show ban the diffusers all together for all teams.

Sorry? Do they not check them before the strat of the season? and if they do, why are they now deemed illegal?

starting to get bored of all this running around with stupid rules.

Rawdawg, it isn't possible to ban the diffusers now as they are too integrated into all of the cars.

They can only say for 2011, that they are not allowed. Of course, if the FIA had had any nouse, they should have said this as soon as the issues arose last year and we wouldn't have them this year.

One can only hope that it is as bad as it was on Sunday on a few circuits this year and that Melbourne will be better.

Well I for one applaud them. And if this is a sign of the Todt regime, with FIA writ large, not it's boss, then good for him and I take back all the vicious stuff I've said about you over the years. Bigger challenge is to do something similar if Ferrari are the transgressors.

The FIA rules do seem to be a bit weird/badly written etc. At times they seem to make no sense, and indeed, in the circumstances we have here, they do not make much sense. As Whitmarsh has stated, the holes are the same size as last years championship winning car, so what has changed?

What the FIA has to do is stop writing rules that focus on detail, because the engineers are certainly better than the FIA in finding ways around them.
