F1 » Kate Walker: Sport requires a level playing field


There is one company that sells cars so that they may participate in F1,that company is Ferrari. Hate them or like them they can best be described as the only truly F1 fan among the teams. To get to the crux of the matter competitiveness, it's no different from what is happening in soccer or football or other sports. What presents a rather unique dilema is the fact that F1 and the engineering that it represents requires the best technology etc, none of which is cheap. Would you expect a company, building engines, power systems or other ancilliary equiptment , to agree to an equal share of any outlay as one not so tasked .

F1 » Kate Walker: Sport requires a level playing field


Continued. If there should be the requirement that all teams build their own power systems, engines etc, how many of the non auto manufacturers would be willing to invest in developing expensive items which when used or obsolete had no further value to them. Research costs time and money. How would you fairly compensate say Renault for its current effort versus Mercedes ? When she puts down her pen or tablet Kate's work is done. When manufacturers put down their pens or tablets it's to relax a bit before pressing on to find other or better solutions.

F1 » Red Bull appeal rejected


letgo: I am not saying get rid of the fuel flow restriction, or get rid of a regulatory sensor. I am saying that the current solution is not fit for purpose and should be replaced. It cannot be used for equality as it gives an advantage / disadvantage dependent upon luck of the draw regarding which sensor you are assigned and it certainly should not be used to affect a race result!! I would liken this decision to taking a finishing position away from a driver who's transponder stopped working correctly and stopped updating the 'official timing' with his/her lap count, because according to the 'official sensor' he/she had not completed the race distance, even though there is sufficient evidence (TV coverage and ECU data as an absolute bare minimum!) that the race distance was completed! If I were RBR, I would have acted no differently at Melbourne. Regardless of advice from the FIA based upon GIGO readings, they were complying with rules. End of story. Today is a sad day

F1 » Rosberg heads extremely close FP2


My hypothesis is Redbull found a way to produce a massive burst of power at the start of races last year. They were then able to build a sufficient cushion and cruise to the win. Their intention was to follow a similar performance model this year. but since the current regulations allow the FIA to more closely monitor power output, the plan is to have the rules changed and the regulation removed. I take into consideration the warning from Ferrari to be wary of anyone trying any trickery. I'm sorry if I left everyone out of left field.
