F1 » F1 2013 POLL: Did Tribunal reach correct verdict in 'tyre-gate' row?


When you put together such an orchestrated media response, perform all of the above steps, and get away with it - you have to wonder how much of a bumbling and ineffectual body the FIA is against manufactures - too much money in too many pockets. There is no doubt, that any reasonable person could ever consider the attempt by Mercedes as anything but intentionally deceptive - how hard is it to know that the past Pirelli test invite is not in the same ballpark as the a conversation about testing the current 2013 car would require all team members invited. Mercedes is a powerful, how much power they might wield over F1 is beginning to become terrifyingly clear. Fingers? Charley Whiting and Ross Brawn... If i was a betting man, I'd say that Charley is the man that should have the most heat applied to dig up answers. Be interesting to see what other contact those had just prior to the emails. Maybe Ross knew something about Ferrari too, and that Charley was involved there... Perhaps

- They used current drivers to be able to know what tire (current or next year) was being used, giving them a perfect baseline comparison with driving style taken into account, and with known track conditions having only just run a GP there and with no other running in-between. - Of course they can say that how could they expect it to be private, no test would ever be private in F1, you just can't sneak an unaccounted tire out after a GP, Pirelli has to provide them. Indeed, to Ross Brawn this was a golden opportunity that might never come around again. The reason why there was never a follow-up with Charley whiting, was because that may have created correspondence that shut this window. Sure they would be proven to break the rules, but here was a chance to minimise the drag - a way only receive a drive by when you just lapped the opposition.

What a mess, Charley Whiting from his emails seems to be attempting to give advice on an area he knows he cant provide permission on, Mercedes fail to take his advice, and yet use that advice as evidence that they were in the right. They are not stupid people, Ross Brawn is a master tactician, on receiving that email they would of done exactly what an F1 team attempt to do with all aspects of formula 1 - launched a plot straight away to maximise their advantage by using technically plausible interpretations. - They know the rules, they know that the FIA don't harshly punish those that can prove no intention to break rules. - On seeing that email, it would of been an instant realisation that they could use the past Pirelli test invites as a technically plausible way to test with the current car - They used current drivers to be able to know what tire (current or next year) was being used, giving them a perfect baseline comparison with driving style taken into account, and with kno
