F1 » Honda can develop F1 engine in 2015


107SS2009: The whole debacle and not just this was as a result of Mercedes wanting to prevent having any competition, wanting to prevent the others being given a chance to catch-up, by buying as much time as possible using strange back flipping at every meeting because they know that their PU advantage will be caught-up with sooner or later.
The regulations are now completely contradictory, so each party around the table can protest another is in breach of one rule at least, Honda now have an advantage. They have been able to bring a completely new engine to the competition this year, whilst the other teams have 6 of 66 components which are completely out of bounds for development, and can still only change 48% of the 2014 engine outside those forbidden areas. So Ferrari doesn't look so cleaver anymore.

Ask Alonso who had the worst PU. Or better yet ask the hundreds that were delivered horse heads and pink slips. I want competition as well but do NOT consider it right for it to be an annual FIA effort to level the playing field. This has been going on for years in F1 where rules/regs become loopholes as needed for the SHOW and later declared clever. And yes IMO the relaxing as you call it was to totally appease Ferrari. I am not one that believes the FIA always gives Ferrari what they want, but this time they have.

Taipan:
rob01: There was no loophole. FIA was just appeasing Ferrari. Secondly none of the loopholes used by Adrian were clever either, just arrogant.
So finding a loophole and using it is arrogant? I would have thought finding a loophole and not using it would have been dereliction of duty, or perhaps just plain stupid.
So I take it you don't think the FIA was appeasing Ferrari. They put the worst PU on the grid. Please tell me you don't believe there was a loophole. You're very bright so this should be interesting.

richard: rob. it is patently clear that you dont like ferrari any more. is it because the gave your idol, ferdi, his marching orders? but ferrari are being clever, they are spotting the loopholes, just as adrian did in the past years, and are utilising these loopholes to their benefit. now, in my mind, i have always believed that using loopholes is well within the sporting regs, and i applaud ferrari for doing so. just as i applaud merc for using loopholes last year and gaining their initial advantage by the way, i presume that you meant CCLEVER. a CLEAVER is something like a hatchet.
It for sure doesn't have two C's.
