One wonders what sort of reaction he (Horner) would have had if it were Vettel who was having to defend a victory in such circumstances.....the journos asking such fool questions are quite lucky Mark didn't up and deck them!!

To say that its incredible the lengths some teams will go to, to have the fastest car is the understatement of the century. So Webber won with an illegal car then...nothing new here. Button won races and his only F1 title with an illegal car - Brawn GP (now MercedesF1 if I'm not mistaken). Its a dirty old 'sport' is F1.

SHAKEN, why do you bother posting or even showing interest in a sport that is so "dirty"?

If cars were deemed illegal based on what all the keyboard warriors think, there would be no racing.

The FIA has discovered another illegal detail on the Red Bull,” the German report said on Friday.

The detail is in the brake cooling ducts of the Adrian Newey-penned RB8, which in the FIA's opinion were being improperly used by Red Bull as an aerodynamic aid.

The rules say the ducts may be used only for cooling.

Red Bull reportedly argued that its design was exclusively for cooling, but the FIA did not agree and ordered a re-design.

AM&S said that the Milton-Keynes based team has been using the offending layout since the start of the 2012 season.
