This is probably Alonso's only chance to keep the championship alive till Brazil and a track to suit the Ferrari He has been thrown a lifeline.I hope he uses it wisely.Massa may have to "slow " Vettel .Ferrari strategists will be burning the midnight oil again tonight

I see that RBR have removed Vettel's car from Parc ferme "To investigate further" and will now be starting from the pit lane. Doesn't that mean they can now alter things and fine tune it, thereby gaining an advantage they would not have if starting from the back of the grid? Or am I wrong??

pitpit and lulumerc. i dislike being called a liar by you.
unlike you two, i am registered so you can look back on my posts. please do so and show me where i have said that lulu is a cheat!
you hide behind anonymity, i dont.
the rules are specific and neither driver is responsible for putting too little fuel in their car. if the team make a c ock up, the penalty should be the same.

jose. just saw your post. unfortunately f1 does not use bdas. but in the current f1, too much fuel does in fact cause overheating in the cylinders and exhaust, due to the increase in fuel being used and therefore the conversion of fuel to more energy which is expressed in heat.
