F1 » Mercedes calling for increased Red Bull sanction


fourteenseven:
1Jez: @fourteenseven - there was nothing 'potential' about an inaccurate reading in Ricciardo's car, it certainly was an inaccurate reading. The FIA acknowledged that fact. The dispute is regarding how the FIA and RBR wanted to deal with that incorrect reading. There was no compliance from other teams to an FIA request because no other teams were subject to the failure that Ricciardo's car experienced. RBR are not trying to put themselves above the law - they are trying to race up to the letter of the law. According to RBR, the FIA wanted them to apply such a conservative correction to the fuel flow readings that it would have made them uncompetitive. How is that fair?
if a policeman tries to pull you over even if you disagree, you really need to stop
Not if he's already told you his speed camera was faulty.. :)

F1 » Horner plays down Vettel ‘team orders’ issue


therealDave: Some of the comments on her are really funny. "Webber is laughing" and "stoner can make a pig cross the line first". Firstly, if you ignore the pre-season issues with SV car that he is still having trouble with, then yes, Riccardo is making him look human. If you think stoner (and senna) could get pigs across the line first, well, they didn't more often than they did so not sure what point you are trying to make with that one. .....
Haha oh Dave, you just cant help yourself can you? Everybody knows Stoner could win on a pig of a bike that no-one else could win on, just accept that your favourite guy couldnt and move on. :) As for DR, he was alot faster that Seb at the time they asked Seb to move over so they had to do it to get the best possible result for the team. he got the job done anyway, but you have to wonder if DR would of been able to get FA if he didnt have to fight with Seb for a lap or two.

F1 » Red Bull appeal rejected


This ruling is an absolute disgrace and just shows that F1 is a farce. The ruling body cannot supply a part and by its own ruling call it faulty one day, and then tell a team to use it in a race the next day after THEY THEMSELVES declared it faulty, rendering the team at a disadvantage. Once again it shows there is no justice in F1, only large sums of money changing hands behind closed doors. With engines that sound like vacuum cleaners, cheese tyres, fuel limited racing, push to pass (DRS) and coasting into corners, F1 is no longer worth watching. The F1 stars of old would be turning in thier graves at what it has become. Disgusted.

F1 » Mercedes calling for increased Red Bull sanction


The FIA gave RB a directive to say thier first sensor was faulty, then they gave RB another directive to use a new sensor which failed, so then they went against thier first directive and told RB to use the first faulty sensor, so how can RB be punished for doing exactly what the FIA did? The whole case is a joke and its the FIA who are making a farce out of F1 for using substandard equipment to measure what doesnt need to be measured, just to get a truckload of money from a manufacturer so that manufacturer can say they supply F1. It stinks, and the case and the sensors should be thrown out. Give them 100litres and let them race, better still give them as much fuel as they want and let them race. If we all wanted to watch fuel saving races we'd watch solar car racing...

F1 » Red Bull to learn fate on Tuesday


smpmatty: i thought this was pretty simple.. FIA.. slow the fuel rate down . RBR nope your sensor is wrong we are doing it our way.. FIA. please slow it down RBR no we are loosing 4 tenths a lap. obviously this is not what was said.. how ever this is the basics.. How can they not penalised? I am a Ricciardo fan and believe he shouldn't have been punished but also a lewis fan and think that Merc should pull there head in a little.. Yes they have a superior car but RBR has for the last 4 yrs. Lets see the result then we can all make comment again :-)
Sorry mate, its more like this. FIA-"the sensor we gave you on saturday is faulty, and then the next one we gave you failed, so go back to the faulty one we gave you and just race with that, no matter how much it disadvantages you" Red Bull- "F That, we'll use proper calcs from the ECU thanks because your sensor is faulty, as deemed by yourself". If RB lose this case, then F1 has jumped the shark. :(

F1 » Ricciardo: Nothing to lose in appeal


Fullofit: Poor lad hasn't met Sunny yet ... if RBR lose the appeal, apparently Dan will get a yellow card and be sent to the sin bin, and will get sent back 10m at some stage during the next race ... :p
Ddidnt you know Fullofit that the FIA are real live deities that walk amongst us and can do no wrong? Those sensors arent faulty, they're just psychic and can adjust themselves to what the FIA are thinking at the time.. "RedBull are too fast, slow them down by reading above the flow limit"... :)

F1 » Red Bull appeal success ‘would be bad for the sport’


107SS2009: It should be remembered that anybody running on track did that by agreeing to those rules/regulations, what RBR did was tantamount to moving the goal posts while the game was in progress, And to the attention of the one full of it, remember that arguing with the ref as they say in rugby, 10meters back or sin bin.
What you dont seem to understand, is that using your analogy, what the FIA did was tantamount to giving different teams different size goalposts, then admitting they were faulty goalposts, so they gave them another set, which failed, and then told them to go back to the first set of incorrect sized goal posts that they had already admitted were incorrect and told them they had to just play the game with them while the other teams had proper sized goalposts. No competitor would accept that if they were serious about winning in a fair competition. The appeal should be upheld until the FIA can get sensors that dont vary so much or scrap them.

F1 » Vettel: You can’t be stupid with team-mates


Oh Richard, and you've been doing so well lately.. :) DR caught Seb after being held up behind Raikonnen, when he was on the medium compound (Seb on soft), without being able to use DRS, and way before Seb reported having any straight line speed issues with his car. How about you admit that you might of got it wrong in regards to Dan. He has driven great in every race and qualifying so far. He definitely deserved the RB drive and is showing why the experts hired him.

F1 » Vettel: You can’t be stupid with team-mates


richard: bob. I have already acknowledge that has surprised me. but I stand over my earlier comments that jev is at least the equal of dr. ad this is repeatedly said by brundle etc. so I am not alone in my assessment.
Unfortunately Richard, DR has proven that JEV is not the equal of him, both in junior formulas driving for the same team and in F1, so you and Brundle (if he's even said that as i havent heard or seen anything from him saying that) might want to change your tune. JEV is having a tough time with his rookie teammate this year, while DR is driving extremely well, despite car & team issues. Continuously peddling the "JEV is just as good" line when its been proven many times he's not, just makes one look petulant and unwilling to admit when they were wrong.
