  1. Quite easy to see why Horner wants more clarification on the Mercedes wing. If they keep getting in the way of RedBull they fear it’s going to be too hard to win this year. If only Horner could deal with something his team didn’t create…

      I believe RedBull are looking into the driver-activated-moveable-aero-device legality concept rather than just copying FWF-Duct, then there would be no point in getting their invention and wait for the FIA to reject it

      if you were in horners position you would do the same thing, he will not complain about a car genuinly going faster then his, but if it is a loophole in the rules, then he can question it, as he has a chance of having the loophole closed. other devices have been banned in the past which seemed less like potentially being outside the rules. also redbulls exhaust blown diffuser which was legal for so long was also banned, so he can complain as much as he wants, its just the poletics of f1

      • If i were in Horner’s position I would question it but only to a certain extent. Except, since it has already been deemed legal twice than questioning it further is absolutely unnecessary and excessive. I’m sure, like you mentioned, he is hoping for it to be banned but lets not just point fingers at every little loophole there is. Absolutely agree with it just being politics.

    Can I just say, despite all the maths involved in F1, it is apparently quite difficult to add 5 and 5 together. After qualifying, Raikkonen’s final starting position was calculated as 8 and 9 and in all the Sky coverage, it wasn’t actually ever correctly reported as P10. Strange :D

    Williams keep blowing chances, their car was good enough to be better ranked.

    Lotus

    So now in F1 we measure time in a fraction of 10,000’s of seconds?

    Pic managed to improve the gap to Glock by exactly .4s.

    That’s pretty positive stuff for him and he ought to be really happy with that.

    When was the last time Webber outqualified Vettel?
