    Italia press reckons Red Bull are using an illegal traction control system. Firstly it wouldn’t be a surprise if these rumours have some substance given their history.

    Sebastian Vettel’s three wins this season may have to do less with his ability and more to do with an illegal component in his car, if the latest speculation is to be believed.

    For crying out loud, some people just do not want to accept Vettel might be a good driver. I can’t stand the guy, but how hard does talent have to hit these people in the face to see it?

    The Italian press is renowned for their balanced and objective F1 journalism.

    Also, just to throw some crazy conspiracy theory out there…Ferrari launch-control.

    @DavidS I’m surprised there haven’t been any articles about Ferrari betraying Italy in recent years; they seemed to be a weekly thing back when Schumacher wasn’t winning titles for them.

    “Just drivetrain oscillation?” Could be, I’m no expert but it begs the question why none of the other cars leaving these kind of markings?

    Surely RBR are not the only ones with an oscillating drivetrain!

    Both Mercedes and Force India have left those marks in Canada.

    @mnmracer already posted some pictures showing other teams left the same kind of marks, but even at that, a drivetrain is prone to influences from wear, set-up from the rest of the car and driver input. It’s not like all drivetrains in all cars at all times would cause any car to leave the same tyremarks.

    I’m laughing right now. Quite hard in fact.
