F1 » Red Bull appeal success ‘would be bad for the sport’

sunny. " the threads were drilled out".....possibly, but as the threads are only there for attaching a part, that does not say that there was any modification to fuel flow. it could be that whatever fixing system is used, the threads may have been modified to suit a relevant part. there is the possibility that the female thread on the pipe was (say) 20 mm long whereas the male part of the connector was 15 mm long, meaning that there could have been a slight disturbance in the fuel flow, and anyone in their right mind would consider cleaning away surplus thread. a bit like gas flowing a cylinder head. (cue taz running to his dictionary to see the difference between a male and a female thread!)

F1 » New US team awarded FIA Formula 1 licence

I just hope that there is more to this than usf1! all we now need to see is windy being announced as team principal. seriously though, if they are intending to be based in America, they could have problems. and presumably they will not be using an American engine. so if they base themselves in uk and use a existing engine, they will hardly be an american team, but then again, merc somehow seem to be classed as a german team. puzzled I is!

F1 » Red Bull appeal success ‘would be bad for the sport’

this talk of "reaming out" is pure speculation. it started as a possibility, but as never shown to be act. however, even if it was done, it would have no effect on the electronic measuring of fuel flow. that reads density and speed, so if the pipe was "reamed out" the speed would have to reduce , so as to come up with the same figure. there was no suggestion that any mod would have affected the reading, but only that the electronics were defective
