The timing of this situation is nothing more than an effort of the FIA to fabricate competition artificially over the next three events. The teams would have no time to react to any rule changes until after Canada, with Monaco next week and Canada beyond, being a fly away race. It is a shame that what used to be pinnacle of motorsport, is now the sideshow of motorsport. Is it any wonder that the FOTA want to break away?

The system is already banned. FIA giving time for teams to adjust doesn't make it legal now. My guess is that they want infighting with the teams. Lets see if one of the small teams lends FIA a helping hand and protest after the race.

f1 is becoming a farce.
ridiculous prices for spectators
artificial overtaking
fia not banning illegal devices
politics money money politics
race? no you cant. the cars are incapable.
it was said today in qualifying - the race tomorrow is all about tyres and pitstops.
what happened to racing? where did it go?

To me it seems that the FIA is on a warpath, as I can't understand why they embarked on this clampdown at the fifth race of the season when this system was being refined for all that long time, it might also be that they are sort of fomenting the small teams about the possibility of a protest.
