F1 » Minardi puzzled by Vettel's Singapore supremacy

that was a device that Brawn cleverly justified by interpreting the rules in a way not thought of until then (he even made the other teams aware of this beforehand). Many believed it was a cheat - but the rules allowed it. Maybe time will tell - I doubt it personally. But were they found to be cheating, then they deserve to be banished for a period from the championship in the same way that drug cheats are from the likes of cycling and athletics

F1 » Minardi puzzled by Vettel's Singapore supremacy

That would be interesting - dump the clutch and 10 seconds later, after the shafts have "wound up", the car would start. Mind you, CV joints were introduced to overcome torque wind-up and to even out the rotational speed of a shaft when turning through an axis different to that of the wheel (ie when the suspension is compressed). As for Minardi's questions - they're perfectly reasonable to ask - and others have posed the same. Interestingly, RBR have a recent history of being "advised" by the FIA to change certain aspects of their cars, including the mapping, so it's understandable if people wonder. Cast your mind back to '94 - Ayrton Senna was absolutely convinced that the Benneton had t/c & launch control - and lo and behold, the FIA discover "redundant" software in their ECU..... At this level people will do whatever they think they can get away with to win - especially if they have clever lawyers who can argue the purpose of something - just think back to '09 and the DD

F1 » Sauber has 'good feeling' about Sirotkin

Time was, drivers "graduated" from F3 into F1 - but in those days, the step was not so big as that would be today. There's an excellent series of articles by Tony Purnell in the Pitpass site - and one deals with the issue of pay-drivers - his suggestions of a ladder of steps based on achieved performance right from the junior karting levels through FIA sanctioned series to F1 would mean drivers arrive at the pinnacle with good experience rather than a large wedge of $$$.
