F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness


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.

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.

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


That is for FIA to tell when the case is closed. They did it for a reason and seeing that they won several WC in a row, I am inclined to think they know better than You and I... Plus Dan is part of the team, in good and in bad times, they all depend on each other and if any one screws up the whole team gets is, that is how team play works.

The FIA has confirmed it will hear Red Bull’s appeal against Daniel Ricciardo’s disqualification from the Australian Grand Prix on April 14th in Paris. The International Court of Appeal will be convened to judge whether Ricciardo’s exclusion from second place should be overturned. Let see what that goes.
