    Default Today's F1 result

    Should Ferrari not have been disqualified today instead of a "small" fine? The only way to stamp out blatant cheating like this is to hit them hard, and that's on the points table, not the pocket. I know it wouldn't be fair towards the drivers as they are only following orders but still they'd only need to be disqualified once for it never to happen again. Mind you we all know how bias the FIA are towards Ferrari.................

    I disgaree, what Ferrari did was in the interest and greater good for the season and sport

    Any such disagreement or blatant rule breaking would have to be argued in court
    Clearly no such case as Alonso was clearly faster than Massa, just the difference was so small and could not get past
    This is one of the issues when you have two cars with almost identical specification

    Perhaps for next season they should declare the points for the WHOLE race nul and void, that would be more fair!

    Basically Ferrari ordered Massa to pull over and let cry baby Alonso past so he could take the win and help his championship push.

    The greater good? Hahaaaa, your joking. If he's not got the talent to get past fairly that's his problem, not seen this issue with Red Bull have we? Vittel tried to take out Webber a few weeks ago and at least he came off worst.
    So you think the rest of the grid should be allowed to "Cheat" so they can all match each other for performance?

    Agree as usual Ferrari get away with 100k fine with them spending 200million this is like just
    Fitting a new front wing.
    Spanish crybaby cannot overtake like Hamilton or Button .
    They should lose points as well.

    Equally, I would be reporting Red Bull for their "flexing" front wing
    It could CLEARLY be seen moving throughout the race
    As the Red Bull exited out of a corner and accelerated the wing could be seen lowering as more air passed over it...

    Is that like active areodynamics? Are they outwith the rule book, or is it like the diffusser was last season, in that it was an interpretation of the rule?

    The front wing MUST be rigid
    This was clearly visible on a previous McLaren one, deemed to be illegal

    Obvously with increased airflow the ends of the front wing will flex a small amount
    However with careful design this can increase or decrease the downforce...

    Take a look at the footage, as the Red Bull exits from turn 6
    Compare the edge of the front wing against the air intake on the brake ducts
    The top of the front wing starts off level
    However as the speed increases the front wing appears to bend, the outer edges "drop" such that they are no longer level with the top of the brake duct

    Should make team orders legal, as DC said, teams give orders all the time, just not as blatant and poor as today. I mean Rob Smedly after the race, EJ was right he deserved an Oscar.
