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.

F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness


the fuel flow limit is there to make teams try and produce more efficient engines which = horsepower. Rev limit is meaningless when you have a turbo (you can always add boost, you don't need more revs) and they are not even running close to the rev limit. Fuel flow limit and max fuel per race limit are actually pretty smart. With those two limits FIA should have left everything else about the ICE be unlocked and the the teams can innovate as much as the dare.

@107SS2009 Teams can use who many systems they run to monitor their fuel flow, they are not restricted by any rule for this. They must always have the system provided by FIA, and the fuel flow limit is judged by this system only and by the back up system that FIA defined. The offence of RedBull is that they have breached the 100 kg/h fuel flow limit judged by the system FIA uses. The defense of RedBull is that said system was faulty. There is no rule braking for using different systems for internal data loging.

@Texas Roadhouse Actually when You get a speeding ticket, You can request a certification of the camera and if it is not in check, the ticket falls. Been there, done that, at least in my country this works. Also the camera is not the unit of reference. The camera is calibrated to the unit of reference, which in term is done by a third party, licensed establishment, not the police, not the FIA.

@Yes Yes Yes Leave Me Alone The problem was not about how much fuel was burnt in the race, that's another rule. The problem here is the rate at which the fuel was burned, that's the limit. You can burn 100kg in one hour by burning it constantly or burn 50kg in 45 minutes and the rest in 15 minutes. Fuel flow rate limits the top power an engine can produce. They can still be in the 100kg fuel limit but exceeded the fuel flow limit never the less.
