F1 » FIA clarifies F1 team radio restrictions


Not liking the ban on something that is blatantly infringing a rule/regulatio that all on the grid go racing under does not change the fact that said rule is being breached. Neither does the level of the car’s sophistication change the fact that a rule teams go racing under was being breached. In itself an attempt at a coded message is a direct attempt at breaching a rule the teams go racing under. Rules and regulations that a participant agrees to take part under are not meant to be side tracked or breached in any way. If a team/s feels that a rule/regulation needs an upgrade/change that team/s should have gone through the proper channels such as the technical working group to update/amend that rule/regulation and not go taking part and do their best to side track/breach that rule/regulation.

F1 » Wolff: F1 radio ban ‘controversial’


And as the subject took a turn back to Mercedes and its drivers here are two quotes from two different sources. (Mansell, one of Britain’s most impartial! ex F1 drivers and serving FIA race steward) “The Mercedes camp will decide the outcome of the winner of the 2014 driver’s title”, Mansell doesn’t sound like believing much of what Mercedes preach to their fans and the press. (An F1 site that is regarded as top-notch) “After Monza two independent sources from within Mercedes offered to this site that instructions had been given to Rosberg in regards to his having to “gift” a victory to Lulu as payback for what was judged to have been his fault of what the rest of the world including the FIA calls a racing accident.

F1 » Williams: Line-up can win titles


Rob, agree as there seems to be a clause that states “as long as he (LDM) is president of FERRARI”, it all seems to depend if he took that option before he was pushed out or not. And contrary of what a section of the British press is saying, I don’t think that either him (LDM) or FERRARI (the team) could have already taken that share option as it can only happen when the share flotation materialises.

F1 » Wolff: F1 radio ban ‘controversial’


rob01: The two fastest cars on the grid are the reason for the ban. While they shoot off in the distance they were getting more advise which further increases the gap to the others. FIA would have done nothing if all the cars were packed up like the mid field. Too bad the mid field built crap cars. Quoting Lauda.
Fully agree, always admired that at the end of the day your honesty always comes out on top. Reading this from a Mercedes fan and an avid fan of one of their drivers goes some way to confirm the real overrating of their drivers driving abilities on track.

F1 » Williams: Line-up can win titles


Taz: They just need to find a bit more downforce. I'd expect the other teams to be more competitive next year but they still have the best engine and really for next year they are just tweaking this years package...unless there is rule changes I don't know about (nose change, anything else?). Regardless, it's great to see them having a strong season. If they get 3rd what does that earn them in prize money?
Taz, As to the changes for next year what is sure is that just about half of the engine parts can be changes. As to the price money which changes year to year, to get an idea try the hindustantimes motor sports how the f1 pie is shared.

F1 » Williams: Line-up can win titles


And talking of formula 1 money the following might interest some. LDM has had a seat on the board of FI’S holding company since 2012, it is held in his personal capacity not via his previous role as boss of FERRARI, He was in line for share options of 0.25% of the total number of shares of F1 when F1 shares are floated . Just yesterday Marchonne came out saying that it is FERRARI the team that has these rights and not ad persona for LDM. Today there are conflicting reports in the British press about all this “FERRARI has been the first ever team to own a stake in F1” and “Ferrari could take a $25m stake in F1”.
