So now we have all these rumours of BAR's "secret fuel tank" and the car being massively under-weight at numerous races, not so good. I really hope that none of this is true or that's another nail in the coffin for F1. They'd surely be banned if this is true and if only 9 teams were left competing then the grid would be a little TOO empty for my liking, it's already bad!

Oh ****...it's getting better.

The FIA are sticking their noses in again...

Button could lose Imola points




Formula One racing’s governing body, the FIA, has announced it is to appeal against the decision of San Marino Grand Prix stewards concerning the weight of Jenson Button’s BAR car.

Following Sunday’s event, in which Button finished third, his car was found to be underweight after being drained of fuel. However, BAR then supplied an explanation, satisfying the stewards that the car was legal throughout the race.

However, the FIA is obviously not happy with the stewards’ verdict and the matter is now provisionally scheduled to go before the International Court of Appeal in Paris on May 4.

Expressing their surprise at the FIA move, BAR’s CEO Nick Fry commented: "BAR Honda will provide the same rigorous data presented to the stewards last night and is confident that it can prove once again that the car was fully compliant with the FIA Technical Regulations throughout the San Marino Grand Prix."

Should the FIA’s appeal prove successful, Button could be disqualified from the Imola results, which would elevate McLaren’s Alexander Wurz to third place and bring Williams’ Mark Webber up into the points in eighth.

Rubens car suffered an electical fault that has never happened before in testing. As for it always happening to Rubens, whos car suffered a hydrolic problem at Bahrain.

Button hesitated going into Acque Minerali and MS closed up. Then when MS passed Button going into Cariante Alta, the Williams was not close enough to hold Button up, best race of the season so far.

Looks like Trulli has taken over from JV in the rolling road block role.

Thing is, with the current regs they cant overtake. Looking at the pace of Schuey compared to Button (3 seconds a lap faster at one point) he still couldnt get by until Button made a very basic mistake and hesitated. The aero regs have went to far and really are killing the sport. Plus with a track as sanitised as Imola (although in this case you can argue with good reason) there are just no places to pass easily.

Is it just me or does every F1 thread end up with this discussion at some point? Wish they would just sort the sport out.

It annoys me that Max Mosley said last year that 'it was time to start listening to what the fans want'
Then when they set up the working groups to decide on the way forward not one fan was present.

Ive always fancied the idea of having wider tracks and have the run off areas going under grandstands, Im sure the safety issues could be got around.
With the many new tracks being desgined the issue certainly doesnt get any better.

Remind me again who Alonso overtoke today.

MS overtoke well lets see now u start in 13th, 3 cars ahead of u drop out, u finish in 2nd...hmmm...!

Interesting the little credit Ross Brawn gets, what would other drivers have given for the kind of strategies that Ross has pulled out of the bag over the years?

Driver of the day was Alonso without any doubt, he was nursing that car, he was also doing far more braking than normal to stop Schuy getting the run, it wasnt just 'the Torque of the Renault'.
3 Wins in a row with a car that has not been the class of the pack, and the first engine to win 2 races!
Alonso deserves a lot more credit, but the Schumacher ('its him and not the car') hype machine keeps rolling, we still havent seen Alonso crack under pressure, which is a trade mark of schuy, and if schuy knew he had no chance of overtaking Alonso he would have taken him out, like he has done 5 times in the past when he knows he's beaten.

Anyway it was a great battle, just a shame if Alonso wins with the new/new Renault engine in spain it will be the car that beats schuy and not the man.

Anyone? Thanks :)

I phoned them yesterday and was going to go down today. I got told:

Tuesday - BMW
Wednesday - BMW & Jordan
Thursday - BMW & Jordan

...Not going to bother unless more than 2 teams are there...especially seeing as Jordan is the most boring car out there by far now.

Interesting that people can use "the torque of the renault" excuse but whenever it is suggested that Schumi wins "because he's in the best car" that gets rubbished and I am referred to as an anti...

Not so sure about that. I think MS pushes too hard when he's not winning which forces errors. I don't think it's anything deliberate, at least I wouldn't like to think so.

However you're quite right there. Ferrari are renowned for their race stratagy which has won them many a race. It's not just about the car and driver.

[cough]Adelaide '94[/cough]

European GP 1997?

But then again - he was disqualified form the 1997 season after the FIA enquiry for that one.

And we can go back to before F1 as well. :D It's something he's done regularly in various championships.

Also when he's under pressure he usually has terrible races. Japan 2003 for example. Was there anyone he didn't collide with? :D

Anyway...B.A.R. seem confident that they can persuade the FIA that their car was overweight for the whole season.

Should be easy to do anyway. The FIA know how heavy it was at the end of Qualifying 2 - BAR know how much fuel they put in - this is also confirmed with the FIA during the race. They know the weight of the fuel that was being used - as does the FIA.

Don't see the problem really.

Cheers for that. I never rang them in the end.

I went today and saw Williams. I have some pictures in a thread here

I might go again on Thurs, especially if there will be two teams there.

If you decide to go down either tomorrow or Thurs let me know and maybe we could meet up.

Cheers

ARTICLE 4 : WEIGHT
4.1 Minimum weight :
The weight of the car must not be less than 605 kg during the
qualifying practice session and no less than 600 kg at all other
times during the Event.
4.2 Ballast :
Ballast can be used provided it is secured in such a way that tools
are required for its removal. It must be possible to fix seals if
deemed necessary by the FIA technical delegate.
4.3 Adding during the race :
With the exception of fuel and compressed gases, no substance
may be added to the car during the race. If it becomes necessary to
replace any part of the car during the race, the new part must not
weigh any more than the original part.

4.1 Just means the teams stick 5Kg of ballast on the plank for that quali session only.

4.3 Apart from steering wheels, replacement front wings. Anything else that teams replace

LOL, we shall wait and see. I don't think those renaults will be anywhere near the ferraris at Spain.

I am just sitting here wondering how old you are and how much insight you have in the sport.
