F1 » Williams to appeal Massa DQ, believes FIA is wrong

107SS2009: Williams could not have gained any advantage neither by overheating one tyre nor by over pressuring, although there is no doubt that the over pressure was due to the overheating. To me it looks more like faulty equipment that belongs to Williams. There is no way that taking pressure readings or temperature readings by tools calibrated by Pirelli and sealed by the FIA on a tyre can be done incorrectly or the readings are or can be in doubt.
So that must mean Williams have a faulty blanket sensor as well as a faulty IR temperature sensor and a faulty FIA-identical gun. That's a lot of faulty equipment.

F1 » Williams to appeal Massa DQ, believes FIA is wrong

Thing is, the big advantage was running the tyres at a lower pressure. In this case the tyre was over the limit and the temperature was so high that Pirelli stated it was likely to damage the carcass. Also it was only one tyre affected and this does not look like any kind of cheat. Why would having one tyre at a higher pressure help? Try it in your own car and see if it is better. It won't be. This looks like either a measuring problem or, less likely, a blanket fault. A DQ is usually the case with a technical infringement, In the Merc case, there was a measuring problem as the rules were woolly.

MotoGP » Circuit of Wales clears ‘final planning hurdle’

Analyst: Why, why, why ? Donington is the best circuit for bike racing and if the Welsh assembly are providing money for this crazy scheme, would that be contrary to EU unfair competition rules ?
Its only the same as Texas subsidising COTA or virtually any of the newer tracks - all built with government help of one kind or another. Also, there's not a lot of competing tracks in South Wales. Very pretty coastline though.
