rob. no, they didnt have traction control. they modulated the engine WITHIN the existing rules. but after acertain team complained, as they hadnt thought of it first, the rules were rewritten. BIG difference.

pitstop. you should really stop using the name of a young lady, and tarnishing her name! but what is wrong with wanting to save an engine? sensible precaution as the car was out of the points, and loss of alternator could have wrecked the entire engine!
that is, inless you know different.

whatever makes you feel good richard. i am aware of what the FIA did to the Bulls efforts/tricks this year. Red Bull lucked out that they got to keep the points. Ask Sunny

rgb/luluisnotsogreat. one thing that you cannot change, is your spelling anf grammar! as you say, fanboys come in all forms, but i reckon that your type is the ultimate! shame that you are using newbies name!

by the way, why not discuss the alternator problem? there is an interesting article about it, on autosport. it appears that oddly enough, it is a low speed problem

The low speed theory for the alternator sounds like baloney. They state that both Valencia and Monza have low speed corners - unlike what? Monte Carlo? All tracks have low speed corners, more than either of those cited... keep looking. As far as all the harping about RBR cheating, in each case, the cars were inspected and found legal by current rules. In each case, the rules were subsequently clarified. There has been no protest made or cheat found. This is why there has been no case against RB or loss of points, period. The rest on this topic is just a load of bull of another type.

kevin. renault say that although there were no failures at monaco, the alternators were indeed overheating. i reckon that renault are reasonably sure of what the problem is, and are trying to correct it rapidly.
