matt. get over i! accusing rbr of cheating, is just plain sily. they dont! they might push rules to the limit, but i would hope that all teams do that. it is when items that are deliberately outside the rules are present, then when seen , the fia should act.
there was one team that deliberately broke the rules last year, and it was not rbr. the breach was spotted BEFORE racing began, so there was little publcity about it.

If this slight twist on the regulations were to be situated on the RBR car it would be mid season before concern was logged. The 4 top running teams would copy, first, if no results came, only then would they raise a complaint. Politics aside however, it's really good to see Williams bending rules to be more competitive. I feel however that such things as rule infringements should be hidden under bodywork ala Adrian newhey designs. RBR are THE biggest rule breakers on the grid, but it's magician like and well hidden, all respect to them for it!

its pecliar. coughlan was claiming that caterhams vane was illegal, and then goes and says that the williams one is ok. mustnt have red the rule that says that no bodywork can be placed in the "cone" of exhaust gas.
