F1 » Honda wants ‘fair competition’ in F1

rob01: Honda may get their wish as McLaren could protest every race where teams have gone outside of the technical agreement on engine homologation. The FIA has agreed to rethink letting Honda doing the same as the others for 2015.
Any good source for the "FIA RETHINK"?.
The judge 13 but multiple sites reporting. Doesn't look good for Honda though.

F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole

rob01: The real problem for Honda is that there was not really a loophole. The rules are very clear as to when the homologation for new engines need to occur . The loophole was created due to the fact that Merc would not let the others catch up. F1 has used loopholes as needed to create parity for many years. No other racing series in the world has so many loopholes. And you can always count on Charlie W for the help.
Oh,so you saying the architects of the rules knew Mercedes were going to be dominant hence this loophole. I hope you are seriously joking.
Read again. I said there is no loophole. That's what they end up being called.

F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole

They do Not need to overturn the Honda ruling. Honda should do exactly as the others did their 1st year with new formula. Honda has their begging bucket out to gain any advantage they can. Its smart but not the same as those in 2nd year of new formula. As I said there is no rule loophole. Merc wouldn't play nice after everyone patted them on their back so the CatchUp was granted through a combined effort of teams with begging buckets and the FIA. It has been the way of the sport for a long time. It is more important to protect the Show than follow the intent of the rules that were Agreed to by all.

F1 » FIA creates points system for super licence

rob01: They use to issue them(super license) like candy as they are a revenue stream. FIA charges the drivers an annual flat fee(12,800) plus 1280.00 per point earned. In 2009 Button paid 1.28million for his.
No wonder none of these guys talk anything about the FIA. They can't afford to open their mouthes about that organization for fear of being hammered over the head for millions/hundreds of thousands of dollars/etc... Sounds like a mob protection racket. btw, where is Formula E, or is that not a credible racing series?
FIA under Mosley wanted more money for policing the sport. Bernie didn't want to pay more so they created a new revenue stream with the super license fees being esculated to fit their needs. The GPDA complained heavily and Max told them the could race in another series. Jenson even issued a statement saying a flat fee was the only fair way to go. Explainin that just because you got a better car than ot
