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?

F1 » Maldonado penalised for Gutierrez clash

richard: jez. what a ridiculous post.
Play the ball, not the man, Richard.
richard:yes, it was good fortune. had the wheel actually detached itself, it would have been rolling down the road at around 60kph. would you have liked to be in its path? apart from that, had dr got on to the track, and the wheel came off at speed, he could easily have suffered injuries.
But it DIDN'T come off and he DIDN'T enter the track, so what harm is there? I agree that there should be a harsh penalty in the case such as Webber's errant wheel, but the same thing did not happen with Ricciardo. Fortune, luck, karma... it's all a fallacy. There is no such thing as inherent fairness in the universe. Believing in luck is akin to believing in psychic mediums.
richard:any risk assessment works on the "what ifs", and the aim is to reduce as many possibilities of injury, as possible.
Risk assessment also takes into consideration the l

F1 » Sirotkin blames shoes for lack of pace

I can understand how what he is describing would be a pretty big issue driving an F1 car, however I find it inconceivable that - a) he was not fitted out with his own Sauber branded gear quite some time ago (has he not already driven the Sauber?), b) he did not have any other FIA approved shoes of his own, c) he could not source a suitable pair of shoes once the problem was found.
