Why not Christian, (remember Mercedes DDRS) it comes with the territory, anyone would think that Red Bull wasnt leading the championship. Suck it up guys and let the others complain some more, and concentrate on your team, for instance the teams world champion has been getting a bit emotional lately, take a good look at that!

"Every single time our car has been questioned by other teams, it has always been compliant with the rules."
Already forgetting the illegal hole in your floor in Canada as well as those illegal wheel hubs?
The pressure is showing of a team that was dominant last year and are frantically trying to keep ahead!

When will we see the suspension arms holding the front wing and not the nose? Ok, carbon fiber it's improving his resistence and, even so, many teams have problems, with their massive front wings moving up and down, touching the floor of the track when the cars are at high speed. This is maybe a solution to divert more air to brake pods (and make it smaller and lighter). Another aspect, it's that the front of the car will have a smaller nose and more space to put aerodynamic devices, who could distribute the air as you please. The problem are the huge front wings and weight that they can stand. I don't know why FIA wants so massive front wings.

Rob, cheating is breaking the rules. Red Bull is bending them.
There are innovations every year that bend the rules. The F-duct, Blown diffusers, engine mapping, rim discs, everything from the days of active suspension to the new variants of KERS. If you're not innovating, you're losing.
RBR are looking for any and every advantage, even if it goes against the spirit of the rules, but to be honest, those are the guys I'd want on my team. Hungry, Ambitious and driven. RBR's 'violations' have largely been up to interpretation. Were they holes in the floor or dimples?
Anyway, every team looks to get an advantage. RBR are just better at it at the moment.

Slimey little cheats. They always say that the cheat they were using didn't really help, yet they always lose a load of time when they are told to remove it. They should get hammered by the FIA. It always seems to be Red Bull. And why would they stop? They use very grey areas in the rules to win and then when they are caught all they have to do is remove it!! Another win in the bag. They are arrogent F1 scum. I seem to remember the F1 talking about the "spirit of the rules" RB has no spirit, history or dignity.
