F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness

Sunny calling people who do not agree with you stupid is a trifle arrogant on your part. We just have to let the legal action play itself out and await the outcome. Once things move into the legal arena you often get unexpected outcomes. If the ruling goes in favour of RBR will you apologise to those you have called stupid. I am not saying that RBR are right or wrong. I have merely stated that they were in a "no win" situation if they had turned down the fuel rate and possibly scored a couple of points. The alternative was to ignore the request and going for all or nothing in the belief that they had reasonable chance of winning the appeal. Remember that F1 is a business now - a very big business. The sport has moved into the corporate world and is subject to the rules that govern the operation of corporations.

F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness

107SS2009: Anybody that remotely believes that a team that goes racing have a right or is right to ignore requests/instructions by race control while the race is in progress regardless of the potential rights or wrongs is a total disgrace to F1 and not worthy of being on this forum.
You should preface that with "in my opinion". You are entitled to your opinion as are other posters on the forum.

F1 » New chief for Russian F1 Grand Prix

I'm late to this thread but a few things spring to mind. The US (read CIA) had been stirring up nationalistic sentiment in the Ukraine for the past 4 years. There are transcripts of US officials discussing how to overthrow the democratically elected government in Ukraine and replace it with a pro-western government. The Crimean peninsula belonged to Russia previously and the people there very strongly identify with Russia. Both their democratically elected government and the referendum confirmed that they wanted to stay with Russia. Now the US keeps warning Russia not to meddle in what is happening in Ukraine and is imposing sanctions. They are supporting a bunch of right wing nationalists who killed over 80 police (yes, they started the violence) and overthrew the legitimate government. I think I know who is in the wrong here and its not Russia.

All I will say at this point is that once issues move from the track to the court room the rules change. In a court of law you are required to argue your case and prove beyond reasonable doubt that your position is the correct one. If all the FIA has to support their side of the argument is data from a known faulty sensor they will have a hard time.

F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion

To take the assertion that teams must comply with FIA requests to an absurd extreme for illustration purposes: suppose they had asked Mercedes to turn down their fuel flow 20% and Nico had finished 4th. Would that have been fair? If a sensor is faulty and giving incorrect readings and each sensor gives different readings there is sufficient reason to challenge such a directive. If they had turned down the fuel flow and been passed by the McLarens and Ferraris then afterwards the FIA was found to have been wrong in issuing the directive it would be too late. The choice RBR made gave them a reasonable chance of earning points if they believed they had a defensible position.
