F1 » Red Bull could risk FIA wrath again


Having backed themselves into a corner in the first place, the team are between a rock and a hard place. Whichever way they play it, they would lose. None of the other teams would side with RBR - that's all part of life in the piranha tank. As for Pirelli last year, that was totally down to the tyre failures at Silverstone. Had those not occurred, I doubt if they/FIA would have made changes - and, had that been the case, the latter part of the season would certainly have been more open (even the most diehard RBR fan would admit that - the team itself acknowledged as such).

F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


F1 should also be concerned about the attraction of MotoGP, if the Qatar race is anything to go by. Hopefully Austin will provide more of the same (cos I will be there). Having been watching (and a little bit of competing) since the mid-60's, the sounds have always been an integral part of motor-sport, for me, whether 2 or four (or more) wheeled. Memories of V-8 Falcons, Galaxies, Camaros and Mustangs and Mini's/Cortinas/Anglias are still quite vivid, to say nothing of Gp 6 & Gp 7 monsters - as much as the F1 H-16's, V12's & V8's. Was anyone on here at the first F5000 race at Brands Hatch - the thunder of those cars heading down Paddock Hill was, quite literally, earth moving. For the sheer sound spectacle, Outlaw Sprint cars on a dirt oval is hard to beat - and the very crudeness of the cars only adds to the spectacle. What I'm trying to get across is that what "type" of sound is secondary to the fact that there MUST be sound - our aural sense is as important as our sight in the ov

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


Some people on here seem to be ignoring some simple facts. The FIA have included, in the rules that fuel flow rate is not to exceed 100 kg/hr., and to monitor that, they have provided approved/homologated sensors. So whatever the teams do, it is the data from that sensor, and only from that sensor that the FIA will (can) accept. By warning RBR of their fuel flow rate exceeding the maximum, they acted perfectly fairly. By choosing to ignore the FIA, RBR have placed themselves in the position they are. What are they going to do at Malaysia, and Bahrain? Ii's quite possible they could be facing censure for the same action in three successive GP's when the appeal comes to be heard... One final thought: I just wonder what those posters, who are arguing RBR's case, would be saying had it been, Ferrari, Williams, or McLaren who had been dq'd? Somehow, particularly had it been the latter, I suspect they would have been screaming for exclusion, race bans, mega fines or some other harsh pe

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


Guys - if you get a speeding ticket from a camera you believe to be inaccurate, because, for example, your GPS indicated a lower speed, you will have great difficulty proving, in court, that you were not speeding - because the camera is the unit of reference - just as the FIA's sensor is, in this case. The fact that RBR did not apply the offset is the crucial factor here. They were made aware of the problem, and given the opportunity to avoid repercussions - which they CHOSE to ignore. Shouting about the accuracy, or not, of the sensor is just a smokescreen.
