F1 » Red Bull appeal rejected

omah1975: Kick them out!
No, but it's time that teams, however successful, and no matter the funding realise there is a set of rules, however stupid they may be. And if you sign up to a series, agreeing to abide by them, then don't be surprised if you get burned when you don't stick to them.

F1 » Ricciardo expected appeal failure

Snottub: If Daniel knew the appeal was going to fail, then why didn't Horner know as well. that means that they all knew it was doomed to failure so why did they go ahead with it. None of this makes sense to me. An appeal like that costs a small fortune. Don't they care how much money they waste?
As I said at the very start, It was more a face saving and PR exercise, and would undergo that rather than admit wrongdoing right away. ([whisper] and maybe a team who perceives themselves to be on the way down needs to grab as many headlines as they can! :)[/whisper])

F1 » Red Bull appeal success ‘would be bad for the sport’

richard: sunny. " the threads were drilled out".....possibly, but as the threads are only there for attaching a part, that does not say that there was any modification to fuel flow. it could be that whatever fixing system is used, the threads may have been modified to suit a relevant part. there is the possibility that the female thread on the pipe was (say) 20 mm long whereas the male part of the connector was 15 mm long, meaning that there could have been a slight disturbance in the fuel flow, and anyone in their right mind would consider cleaning away surplus thread. a bit like gas flowing a cylinder head. (cue taz running to his dictionary to see the difference between a male and a female thread!)
Changing the density of the housing of any ultrasonic equipment will alter readings.

F1 » Red Bull appeal success ‘would be bad for the sport’

107SS2009: If you look at the FFM changing the density of the housing is not possible and assuming the threads drilled-out/opened-out were on the in and out of the flow points will not change the density of the housing, this FFM have a capacity or better say can flow a lot more than the 100kg/h as permitted by the regulations.
I would assume nothing, but to ream out threads would suggest the mounting holes in the housing not the flow pipes as the threads are around the outside of the housing, also read last night that a rep of Gill reported the modification was "perilously close to the sensor element itself"
