ferdi. that wont work in Europe!

but from what I have heard, merc are claiming that the sporting codes ban on testing, refers to COMPETITORS, and Pirelli are not listed as a COMPETITOR. but if that is their argument, then the rules that pirelli could run a test, using Pirelli personnel and driver would apply. but In fact, merc ran the cars and used their own drivers (disguised).

After several tribunals in 2009 like double decker diffuser saga, liegate and crashgate, now we will have another one. They are always interesing. As for the Ferrari case, it was obvious that they didn't brake the rules, that was the F150 Italia with very different characteristics to the F138. May the true be revealed.

rob. Pirelli may have no new contract, but nobody else is interested. so fia will do everything they can to keep Pirelli sweet, otherwise there will be no tyres on the cars next year, hence no f1!
red bull are reputed to be preparing a hovercraft for next year, as they have potted another loophole

just reported that Nico ran his mouth to Vettel about the tire test in the gpda meeting after qualifying. the stupid head must have been so giddy getting the pole at his home track. if true Nico HAS LOST his mind. as he also as i said admitted he knew what tire he was testing.

To be fair the tribunal was passed in 2010 ans set up in 2011 so thats why it hasn,t handled anything so far and also even if you lose at the trib you can appeal to the ica international court of appeals to me it makes a lot more sense to test on new model cars to get accurate results i don,t know why they dont have 4 teats sessions during season with a big teal and a little team at each one so its fair to all
