Seems to me that the FIA & the powers that be in F1 are doing everyhting they can to clip Red Bull's wings.
"Cheating", which in reality is just interpreting the rules to your own advantage, goes on by every team in every form of auto racing...
Personally, I think that someone got scared that Ferrari might actually make good on the threat to withdraw from F1 and is looking extra hard at the only team that stands in their way of the title. Not a popular opinion, but it's mine.
Let the flaming begin...

This is nothing new to us,we knew the Fia would not penalise them last sunday even though it was clear that RB racing did not comply within the spirt of the regulations,they (FIA)are actualy cheating on us the fans who pay our hard earned cash to see this artificial show. I sometimes wonder if this type of thing goes on in Nascar!.

It is just common sense, why would they say that it's effect will be minimal when they took the effort to change the engine mapping to their advantage and risk being disqualified or banned for a race. That modification gave them an advantage, a 1/10 or 2/10 of a second is vital in F1 today, 1/10 or 1/20 can get you to pole position. Vettel and Webber plays it down instructed by Horner so that they won't look like cheaters. An advantage is an advantage, the only difference is on how they achieve that advantage, whether legally or illegal, that what defines them.

You guys are questioning Vettel's talent? A 2 time (almost 3) World Champion. The same boy who destroyed all in the wet in Monza 2008 in a different car. I think he has pretty good right foot modulation.

Seb Vettel "will never win a championship again"
Robbed of 12 points Malaysia (Karthekeyan)
25 points Valencia (Alternator)
8 points Germany (British Stewarts)
Otherwise he would be leading the championship again!
Chew on that one, British fans...
