Affect the championship?

In the 5 races before the dodgy test Merc had scored 72 points, in the 5 races since they've scored 136 points. That's quite an improvement. But it must be a coincidence since Ross Brawn told us they didn't benefit from the test.

Oh look a flying pig!!

Sour grapes....

Totally agree, Now that Ferrari are in decline and the Mercs have scored a spectacular win on tires they had not used in 2013 it a case sour grapes indeed.

Only gripes LDM should have with the FIA is there inability to sing from the same hymn sheet.

Ferrari can hardly take the moral high ground after some of the stunts they've pulled.

"Formula 1 has to be a clean sport without any of the monkey business we have had to put up with in recent years," - ahem, watch?v=pWwNU79-tZA

Are we going to hear the moaning all summer break from this team?. Give me a break Luca. He has yelled at Alonso, the team, FIA, aero and Massa so far. Can't wait to see if Roscoe is next.

Ugh - nothing damages F1's reputation like the continuing Ferrari International Assistance debacle. 15 thousand Euros? For systematic cheating and having a cheat switch hardwired into your car so you can cheat at will?

I know that every team plays to its strengths, so the British play to innovation, the Germans play to discipline, and the Italians play to corruption, and everybody is getting good mileage out of their own speciality. But really, for the boss of Ferrari to start talking about the correct application of the rules is laughable. He should just quietly continue with his backhanders and stop giving everybody grief.
