This is why I love Ross Brawn. F1 should be like this. Red Bull shouldn't complaint, because they've been stepping on the line more than others.

Keep up the good work!

"F1 is not just the drivers, it's the technology, the engineering, the innovation"..spoken like a true engineer

The problem is..most fans don't have the inclination to embrace the technical side which gives the geeks such a boner and want to see the best drivers battling. Not some poxy duct turning the race into a snore-fest because those that don't have it can't compete.

F1 is about technology, aerodinamics, bodyworks, innovationN,speed, efficiency, power, suspensions, KERS, braking, ducts, wings, electronics....it is not abt complaints and stupid new rules..

Charlie Whiting's 'i cant see a rule that prohibits it' was very telling. After clarifying what was/wasnt allowed, the Brains department found the loophole. Brawn and brains equals innovation, I expect everyone will copy (except perhaps Red Bull, I still dont know what the hole in the front does exactly), or some more rule changes.

So what's new?? This sort of thing has been going on for donkeys years. Teams will push boundries and see exactly how far they can go - that's motor sport all over!

Time for a standard, control, (attractive) front and rear wing ?
You might as well, because they are already dimensionally tightly regulated. Just imagine, at the start of the weekend the teams send the apprentices down to the FIA truck with a sackbarrow to collect their wings!
