jenny. the michelin tyres used by the renault were not in fact "illegal". they had a square shoulder,


I wasnt talking about tyres, i was talking about Renault's tuned mass damper suspension system

Richard, it is ok and everybody's right to express his opinion that some things might be illegal, but to infer that by using something that has been given the go ahead by the FIA as being cheating is stupidity at its best, this because when somebody is caught cheating it is always with a hidden item/intention. There is plenty of loose cannons over here, an example being Ron trying to explain to you how the EBD works in such a botched up effort.
As to a Scheckter being fired by a team, it was Tomas younger son of Jody who was fired by Jaguar F1 racing team without notice as a result of pleading guilty in court on kerb crawling charges in Northampton.

oh jenny. again, the mass damper was within the written rule, but then disallowed. (it was in several cars). as was the mclaren third pedal.
all designers will push the rules to the limit, and that is what they are paid to do. (and more power to them) but few if any designer deliberately puts something into a car that is specifically banned by the rule.

what is curb crawling? is that anything like cruising for
the lady's of the night.
a simple cure...Don't read my crazy rants. That will solve your
problems.. Really it will, abstinence works every time.
Scheckter, I was surprised he survived F1. One real racing nut case. Father and sun not what I would call real sportsman.
Richard I think you are correct, it may have been the son..
Old, Jose
