F1 » Smedley: F1 engine unfreeze pointless

So Rob, will you agree that there should be no further development on the cars? In other words the car you have at the first race is the car you race all season. Doesn't logic dictate that the car consists of the chassis, body, power unit and transmission? If the power unit manufactures want to play a pat hand it is their decision. If they want to develop with their own resources it is also their decision. Formula Hybrid is socialist enough.

F1 » FIA clarifies F1 team radio restrictions

Formula Hybrid (formerly Formula 1) is doing its very best to kill the sport. We have hybrid engine units, electronic braking/recovery systems, battery units, ERS, turbos and many other assorted systems on the "car". The driver is no longer a driver, he is a system manger in the cockpit of a system traveling at very high rates of speed. Couple this with the fact that power units and transmissions are limited by more stupid regulations and the management of them becomes even more important. Not to mention the management of limited sets of a spec tire. Other forms of racing allow conversations with the pit about car and driver performance and it is not a problem. Try this, give them as many V10's as they can build, 4 sets of any tire they want and all the fuel they need and let's see who has the fastest car? Racing is ONLY about who has the fastest car. I am just about to walk away.

F1 » FIA clarifies F1 team radio restrictions

Ditch the rule. There are stupid rules and this is one of them.

107SS2009: 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. ... If a team/s feels that a rule/regulation needs an upgrade/change that team/s should have gone through the proper channels ...
The thing is, the rule is still being broken, even by the FIA's own standards. This is life, and people don't follow "the rules" if the benefits outweigh the risks (not as advertised on television.) "The rule" 20.1 needs to be rewritten very precisely, and the FIA needs to add a very clear glossary (no parenthetical statements) to their sporting regulations. The FIA should not be above their own rules, this sets a very poor precedent. The question Lewis was alluding to at the last driver's press conference, possibly.
