Every dog has its day and redbulls time at the top may well have passed. It was nice while it lasted and gave us all a break from the years of McLaren and Ferrari dominating everything. What Redbull are going to have to understand is.... You can't win everything!

'Every dog has its day'...when everythings not working for Vettel he's as sour as lemon. I laughed when he got the drive through, probably because I knew i wouldn't have to see the finger...which really iritates me. It was also lovely to see Dr Marco sucking up to him in the garage when all went belly up. I also loved Vettels remark, "I left Alonso plenty of room to pass." Sure you did.

The RedBull won by cheating! Remember the engine mapping, the slots in the floor, the hand adjusted ride control etc etc. Now they have been called on all those and they have been found wanting. Cheats the lot of them!

Gimme a break.

They push the boundaries of the regulations....so what. The regulations are so tight there's no room for innovation.

McLarens third peddle, was that cheating or a bright idea, Renault's mass damper, F-Duct etc etc.

Ferrari and Benneton have both hidden traction control in their ECU in the past as have others etc etc

How about deliberately crashing your car to fix a race result...now THAT'S cheating.

Red Bull are leading the constructors and both drivers have a good chance of winning the title unlike any other team.

Doesnt sound like a struggling team to me.

taz. it is all very well to accuse ONE team of "cheating" , as bonecrasher has done. but as you say, and i fully agree, al what they did was within the rules...just clever and legal interpretation. but some seem to forget that mclaren were actually caught cheating this year, and it WAS cheating, but for some reason there was very little publicity about it. the rules state that floor has to be flat, mclaren had a BENT floor. fia caught it out before it could be used.
i am all for uule bending, as it is INNOVATION!

incidentally, i see that lambo are developing mnemory cf, "as initially developed by rbr in 2011"

bonecrasher. i see that you are more knowledgable of the f1 rules, than the makers of the rules.

rbr has NEVER been found to be cheating. rules were modified AFTER rbr had already been passed as legal.

Richard I read on another thread you stated
the alternator of Sebs could not be changed
and that was incorrect due to Park Ferme however it
was changed after FP3.

Everyone makes mistakes in there judgement.

How about giving others a bit of slack on the rules.

Its called conversation.

Give the man a brake, I believe he has a bus pass!

I know this is way out of context to this thread, but that boy Perez...he's a weapon. And in saying that, he does have his moments.
