- Whichever car is still working
Yeah, but with FIA being extremely strict compared to say 10 years ago, that might be tough for teams to "cover their tracks". I mean, they were just investigating the temp. of the fuel for BMW and Williams. FIA would be over their heads if all the top teams cheated, and it wouldn't make good sense if that causes the viewership to drop, let's just hope they learnt their lesson from the past.@PaSSoA
Ban of driving aids will result in suspects of cheating like it did in the past and that will lead to politic trash talk and allegations and that will lead to reintroduce driving aids in the name of "if you can't make sure no one has it, make it legal" . . .
I too sure do like all the technology in the car, with high budget teams really pushing the limit, but the problem with that is the other teams with less budget ultimately fall in another league altogether. If they had different categories, that'll be fine, but this isn't GT cups and with the specs of the cars closer to each other, we should expect the drivers fighting in out with real skill and hopefully it might turn to great racing for us to watch.I don't see why they're banning traction control and such...
Then again, I'm one of those people that is all for new technology. I'm simply amazed with the technology in these cars and I think it makes teams become MORE inventive and more competitive. Furthermore, I think it increases interest in the sport.
I mean look at the advent of restrictor plates in NASCAR. Fans of the sport really hate it. It really squashes technological advancement...

If you dislike F1 so much, why are you spreading your biterness in this forum?Well, they still haven't proven that McLaren used any Ferrari information to their advantage, yet McLaren was royally f**ked over with disqualifications and fines unheard of in motorsport.
It's things like this that make me dislike Formula 1 so much. In the end, the FIA hands the titles to whoever they see fit.
I don't mean to be a troll about it. I really want to like F1. I've become a fan of almost every type of motorsport I've ever watched, even the ones not aired in this country that I have to search for torrents to watch. F1 is actually aired here and I could watch every race if I wanted. They say it's "The Epitome or Motorsport", but I just can't get past the politics. I start to get into it and something happens that makes me feel bitter. Can't help it.If you dislike F1 so much, why are you spreading your biterness in this forum?
So Ferrari undeservedly gets the WCC and now Mclaren hope to undeservedly get the WDC.
Well he lost then on purpose cos what would Sutil think of him dating a women??
I'm guessing you're referring to Rally of Portugal here, where Ford's rear side windows were half a millimeter too thin. They weren't stripped from their points, instead all drivers were given time penalties (five minutes, I think). At the same event also Marcus Gr?nholm escaped another penalty despite his car being underweight and driving without spare wheel after he lost some body parts and his spare wheel during stage.I'm trying not to laugh at the irony of all this.
You'd think that there would just be a set of concrete rules and punishments, with fines to be determined, so there wouldn't be anything to discuss if someone is found cheating.
I remember a WRC event not too long ago where they found a part on the Ford cars that was not to spec. They were stripped of all points earned that weekend. No appeals. No kicking and screaming. No animosity. They just moved on and prepared for the next rally.
