F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness


Well I still get negative votes and no one says why I am wrong... Still the disagreement stems from a misunderstanding. Teams don't obey FIA they, and also FIA, obey the rules written by FIA, they are all responsible for upholding them and solving problems like the one presented to RedBull as per the Melbourne race. Until FIA decides the outcome of the situation both parties are innocent until proven otherwise.

Ok, let say You are right. Let say RedBull followed race REQUESTS. Cutting fuel back they lose power, they would have for sure lost at least one place to Kev. After the race the put an investigation and find that the sensor is faulty and they have never exceeded the fuel flow limit? What then FIA says sorry? BTW FIA has the legal power to affect race progress only due to safety reasons.

People here imply that RedBull will use their own method to show their fuel flow. Which is illegal, because the approved by FIA method is the sensor they provide and the back up system approved by FIA. We all agree on this, correct? They can't win this, correct? I bet you they won't even try... What they are PROBABLY (as my opinion) will do is to, with the help of their measurements and third party sensor analysis lab, together with FIA officials find and document the unit error of the sensor that was in the car of Dan during the race. When they know the error they will recalculate the real fuel flow, measured by the homologated by FIA sensor. Then we have the two possible outcomes... And I must repeat it will be done with the homologated FIA sensor, the legal way, no rule bending.

Yes it was right to ignore race control. The race control REQUESTED fuel flow reduction, they got ignored, if the steward were so sure of their opinion black flag the car. Then RedBull has to comply. Sensors go wrong, that's why in sensitive parts like this system there should be more than one way to check and compare in the interest of fair competition. Please read at least the summarized technical and sporting regulations on the F1 site to see that RedBull did nothing illegal by ignoring the stewards request. Also the FIA reason for DQ are published, read them too.

I stand with Fullofit on this one. For the competition to be fare, one should abide by the rules. That means the teams and FIA. If someone brakes the rules they should take their punishment. If RedBull did in fact breach the 100kg/h rule they were DQed for, they should stay excluded from the results. If FIA used inaccurate data to judge fuel flow and RedBull prove they didn't brake the rule, give them the podium back. The one thing that bugs me most is, that the stewards knew there are problems with the sensor and they never did switch to the FIA provided back up system. Any one planning to slam my comment, please do it directly with answers to my points and reasoning to why they think this is incorrect. BTW I approve the fuel flow limit 100%, and I want to see it enforced correctly.
