Re: Was Ferrari infringing on the technical directive before

IP rights to an illegal modification are worthless. the FIA see the workings of every car are they likely to break that confidential agreement? The whistle blowers that are working for a rival now cannot testify without getting them and the new team sued for IP infringement. I cannot see how the FI...

Re: Worst drivers so far this season? 2019

I wouldn't say Kubica has disappointed me the most, because I expected him to struggle regardless of Williams' form. If he was running Russell close then we can all say it's the car and not the driver, but he's been absolutely destroyed by George. Vettel is an worth a mention. Expected to fight for...

Re: Was Ferrari wrong to let Arrivabene go?

Embarrassing is the word I would use to describe Ferrari in 2019. But then again, even when (at the off chance) they manage to get everything right and have the fastest car in a season, they find new ways to throw away the championship, be it the team or the drivers. Arrivabene or Binotto don't matt...

They are already pushing it too far punishing first corners incidents whereas in the past it was just that, a racing incident on cold tyres and full fuel tanks.
