The FIA should NOT be allowed to change the rules mid season. Sometimes it's complicated enough catching up with rule changes made before the season begins!

Sauber would probably suffer much more if they were to lose Kobayashi and Perez, so they should be pleased that none of the top teams are considering driver changes.

What the FIA did was an abomination, but still FI and STR proceeded ahead with their blown diffusers anyway and Sauber could have too. I think they just never thought it would bring FI as much as it did.

Agreed with Wiki on the drivers. I think Sauber has one of the best driver line ups of any team at the moment.

The FIA are forcing the teams to not take them seriously by changing their minds.
I think it detracts from the FIA's credibility.

It also prejudices the smaller teams who must be given more stability.
Even the big teams must have wasted an awful lot of time, expense and energy on planning the scenarios!

Not very sporting and not in keeping with the FIA's values.

I think Sauber were sporting to not continue a 'banned' development and I say staying true to good values will take them far!

Keep it up Sauber, what goes around ....
