F1 » Maldonado dreaming of Monaco podium

Don't get ahead of yourself, Pastor. Dream is right - perhaps some points would be a more appropriate target before you start thinking of podiums, particularly at Monaco. We all know that testing times mean very little, if anything at all. Chilton going quickest on day one clearly demonstrates this point. With Mercedes well in front of everyone, Red Bull clearly the best of the rest, then Ferrari, Williams and Force India scrapping for third best team, I just can't see Lotus being anywhere near the podium - especially Maldonado. Maldonado will be lucky to finish the race (he has never finished a race at Monaco in F1), let alone get in the points (for the first time this season, don't forget), let alone get on the steps of the royal box.

F1 » Spain F1 test results - day one: 13 May

Sprulz, Hairy Luthier, Russell13 - there is a whole race weekend's worth of Pirelli F1 rubber laid on the track now, that's why the times are so much quicker. Not to mention a day's testing as well - the race was 66 laps yet most teams are doing more than that in a testing day. Ever heard of the term "rubbered in"? Testing after a race meeting at the same track is an extreme example of it. I'd be surprised if the fastest testing times WEREN'T significantly faster than quali.

F1 » Horner: You can see why McLaren need Fallows…

Snottub: I am the guy that they turn to to execute the actual case in court.
So you're a barrister and familiar with the details of the relevant contracts? The former may well be true, however I doubt very much that the latter is. If you were familiar with the contracts in question, you wouldn't be bleating about it on the internet.
Snottub: Ron Dennis will win this one despite what all you strange people are wishing for. The law is the law and Mclaren are in the legal right. Your assumption as to my legal qualifications is typically wide of the mark for a narrow thinker like yourself.
You're making concrete predictions, without all the facts, about the outcome of potential (not even confirmed yet) litigation and I'M the narrow thinker?

F1 » Mercedes calling for increased Red Bull sanction

@fourteenseven - there was nothing 'potential' about an inaccurate reading in Ricciardo's car, it certainly was an inaccurate reading. The FIA acknowledged that fact. The dispute is regarding how the FIA and RBR wanted to deal with that incorrect reading. There was no compliance from other teams to an FIA request because no other teams were subject to the failure that Ricciardo's car experienced. RBR are not trying to put themselves above the law - they are trying to race up to the letter of the law. According to RBR, the FIA wanted them to apply such a conservative correction to the fuel flow readings that it would have made them uncompetitive. How is that fair?
