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.

1) If the fuel system is flowing fuel at a higher rate than allowed, then the engine is able to produce more power. Fact. 2) Irrespective of what RBR think, the FIA homologated sensor is the unit of record. Fact. How they think they can appeal a decision based on these facts is "interesting" - if they actually do appeal, that is. Personally, I think the rule is unnecessary, however opinion of a rule is irrelevant if you are caught breaking it.

F1 » Ecclestone warns quieter F1 could be costly


The 1.5L T/C engines used back in the 80's produced great sounds - I remember standing at Surtees, just where the GP circuit heads out into the country at Brands for the European GP - just as Senna was mugged by Rosberg and Mansell - the noise level was above my pain threshold as they all three flashed past - so re-tuning the exhaust is perfectly possible (and likely for 2015, if the complaints continue).
