@aapje They complained to the government and to the public at large. Since Kingspan are a subset of “public at large”, then yes, they complained to Kingspan (whether Kingspan heard them or not).
What you think […]
@spafrancorchamps You may wish to review your comments upthread, in that case, because they contradict that notion.
@g-funk They do that because the F1 regulations themselves require it in many places.
Nothing bizarre except it is against FIA regulations…
Of course, not everyone finds that sort of thing entertaining
@aapje , David Scott The fire brigade has been complaining about the wrong type of cladding being used in the wrong capacities (as well as bad fire certification practices that the government was not allowing it […]
@nico_speed If, as is likely, there’s an in-kind element involved, a complete return of proceeds – to anyone – may be impossible.
@spafrancorchamps You may want to rethink your comments. Frank Williams was cleared by the courts of Senna’s death, while Kingspan’s legal issues are likely to continue for quite some time (and could well result […]
The UK has bans on advertising for things not suitable for purpose, and Kingspan is legally suspected of providing materials unsuitable for purpose that it is still selling (albeit it is unclear if it still sells […]
@ccpbioweapon The Tories have enough problems going on (including being implicated in Grenfell) that they would want a distraction regardless of who else might wish to “persuade” them of the benefits of one.
@DaveW They’re commenting in part because there’s a current parliamentary inquiry going on, in which the MPs are expected to contribute to gathering evidence and their contribution is required by British law to be […]
@darryn Everyone who saw the grid paid attention to at least one of them, given the decision changed said grid and was discussed for a long time pre-race.
@bosyber Let’s say I’m not the only person who has recently wondered if the FIA has already decided who it wants to win the title, even though its duty to neutrality means it should not have considered any such decision.
@g-funk Three of the four stewards at any given Grand Prix are volunteer specialists – their day job can be anything, provided they show the appropriate level of skill when stewarding. It is only one of the four […]
Specifically, to test whether it is possible for a given input’s output to replicate – as opposed to whether it is likely – it is necessary to present the same pre-conditions.
If Lewis and Valtteri had offered […]
@simon999 0.2 mm, from what I heard.
@frasier If you re-read mine, you’ll see why that test would fail to answer the question.
(Unless Bottas gets pinged as well, then Verstappen may only lose 2 spots, which paradoxically might be worse for him than a 3-spot penalty this time due to the dirty track).
The standard penalty is 3 spots, which also grants a start on the clean side of the grid.
It’s coming across as the FIA wanting to decide this championship themselves, rather than letting the actual protagonists decide it. Between this and the sheer length of the championship, the number of […]
