kiwi. "whiting is fia.." ???????

NO, whiting is NOT fia. he is employed by fia as RACE DIRECTOR, and was asked by merc for his OPINION. that is what he gave...his OPINION. but that is not a decision by fia! can you not work that out? even the tribunal emphasised that.
a breach of rule can only be agreed by the fia council after ALL teams have given their approval.

it seems that you do not want to accept what the tribunal have ascertained and ruled on. so be it...you can continue to live in your own dream world. ssiiiiigggghhhhh!

Spot on! How many times have teams contacted CW during a race to get an OPINION on a manouevre. If, however, the stewards decide that the manouevre was against the rules, it is they who impose a penalty, regardless of CWs opinion.

In the Merc case, I read that CW gave 'qualified approval' and it depended on all teams being invited. They didn't and consequently there was no approval per se.

Child: Mummy, can I have my sweeties?
Mummy: No
Child: Oh pleeeeease
Mummy: I asked Daddy and he said you can, but only if you share them with all your friends.
*Child rushes off and scoffs all the sweeties*

Is the child at fault? Or would you blame Mummy?
