the only one. what makes you think that the test was not illegal? everybody else seems to believe that it was.

on another point...has crash made it compulsory to register? if so, about time, maybe we will get rid of the oddballs?

rob. at the moment Pirelli had planned to introduce the new tyre at Canada. however, they say they will not use it in the race but will provide a couple to each team to try in practice. of course that is pointless, as the teams need to practice on the actual race tyre!
they have stated that the tyre will be used after Canada, but yet there are stories that at least force india have vetoed its introduction. I think that for it to be used, ALLteams would have to agree, and that seems unlikely.

WRC is under the FIA, just like F1. When Kimi was rallying & did not go to Australia or NZ, I don't remember, he was allowed to race the rest of the season, but he was not scored because he had broken the rules. Merc needs to not be scored for anything following the Merc tire test. Even I know that was outside of the rules. Lotus got the regs last Sept. & built their car to them correctly, now they are being punished. If Merc is not, no longer scored, then they owe Lotus $100 million. Cheating is not fair!
