F1 » Ericsson losing half a second in weight

bob. taz is correct. until this year, the cars had to be ballasted to bring the car and driver up to the minimum weight. so if seb had 8 kilos of ballast, and webber had none, then they were equal. this year, it has been difficult to bring the cars down to a weight where ballast would be needed, so heavier drivers are now penalised. it is sad that we are now in a stage where teams will be looking for the lightest driver, and not the best one. mind you, if a heavyweight came with a bucket load of cash, some teams could overlook the inconvenience of a few extra kilos, even if the car was slightly slower. vergne was hospitalised due to a diet to reduce his weight

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

F1 » Rosberg fastest on day one of test in Bahrain

seashack. writing the rules to make equal? that is what fia are trying to as rob will always tell you! and to be honest, that s what is happening. look at the pace etc of cars from 3rd to 12th! the "problem" is that someone will always be able to interpret the rules to gain an advantage, an really, we should be thankful for that as it leads to innovation. I would imagine that fia did not expect merc to split the two functions of the turbo, but to just use a standard format turbo. possibly not in the spirit of what was intended, but innovative. it is up to others to catch up, but the freeze of engines will prevent it, sadly. so unless fia re wrtie the turbo rules, it will take some hard work for others to try and recover the difference
