I blogged about this earlier but it really looks like Ferrari has a problem with lasting their engines more than one race.

McLaren Bashing?

Published by under Formula 1

Quote for ITV Formula 1 website: Under-fire FIA president Max Mosley has called an extraordinary general meeting of the sport’s governing body to discuss the fall-out from the recent allegations about his private life. I don’t think this coincidence. This is payback time, not by McLaren but by all the other big shots behind the […]

“McLaren apologises over spy findings” [link] I have the feeling that the only reason why McLaren is doing this is because they know that they can never win this battle and that it would have dragged on and on. The whole investigation has always been “proving that you are innocent” instead of the FIA proving […]

First they decide that the MP4-23 has to be checked on “illegal” Ferrari knowledge/parts. Now they decide that the results have to be shared with the competition and in a sense give them full inside on the construction and basics of the McLaren car. When will this charade end? [link]

Bernie Ecclestone warns FIA over title reversal If a formula 1 car uses a front wing which does not comply with the regulations then the results are scrapped. If a car uses full which does not comply with the regulations then nothing should happen?

I have read the transcript of the World Motor Sport Council about the spy case between Ferrari and McLaren (link to the document). It is a very interesting document because it give you an insight in the way the Formula 1 business is run which you normally do not see. The statement gives you a […]

The World Motor Sport Council has convicted McLaren for spying and using information of other teams (Ferrari). The punishment is $100.000.000 and reduction of all points gained during the year 2007 (construction championship). I don’t believe this anymore. The fun I had watching Formula 1 is completely gone. There is a team which has a […]
