Someone get me a doctor quickly, i just found myself agreeing with Max! :?

On a more serious note, WTF should they get away with it? And WTF should the FIA care about a civil action against them? Surely they make the rules and it is up to the teams to abide by them?

Again, the red one's can't keep their mouths shut and i hope this just adds to the fire and the FIA shows them who makes the rules and more importantly, who has to abide by them.

Remember, Max's has a vendetta against Ferrari for getting him tossed to the side like trash. Max rigged the new teams being picked and I am to listen to anything the man has to say? He manipulated F1 for far too many years.

Farce-ari are looking more and more pathetic everyday.

They should be kicked out of F1 for threatening legal action against the sanctioning body. Talk about brining the sport into disrepute!

Ferrari are F1? No, Ferarri are quickly becoming the most unattractive thing about F1. Dom and Monty ARE the worst personalities in F1. I'd rather have Flav and Stodart back.

Let them leave and lets have a rational F1 with teams that aren't caught up in their own pomp and circumstance.

vandkg..If they seek civil action they could be removed. Or is this a step to remove FIA from F1. Bernie said something to the effect of someone else making and governing F1 himself. We will soon see who wears the biggest pants in F1. My bet is on Red. And they are not my team. Nothing will happen. And Max chiming in does NO one any favors. He is still a cancer on the sport.

I don't want to see any team punished twice for the same offense. McLaren only had to pay $10k to qualify an underweight car in Canada. Let's just call it a day on this one and let the remainder of the championship unfold naturally. Plus at least they are not threatening to pull out of F1 like Mercedes was if McLaren were punished too severly during Liegate.

Going forward there are just two solutions. Either allow team orders or get rid of the world championship and make all races non-championship events. It is an impossible rule to enforce and will ultimately prevent any overtaking between teammates as any such moves will be questioned as a use of team orders.

Ferrari aren't going to be punished because BE wants Vettel to become a Ferrari driver in the not-so-distant future. Plus he wants RB to be able to tell Webber to move over for Vettel should the nead arise. BE's going to get rid of that stupid rule, and there's nothing that Lauda & Mosley can do about it. :)
