I originally thought the same thing, although re-reading 15.3 I’m not so sure. 15.3 lists the following five matters where the Race Director has overriding authority:
a) The control of practice, sprint […]
I think the second paragraph of article 48.3 gives interesting context to all of section 48 in the sporting regulations.
It will be used only if Competitors or officials are in immediate physical danger on or […]
I’m getting sick of the race stewards leaving investigations until after the race then being too scared to change the outcome. One look at the purple sector time on the timing screen and one radio conversation […]

That first picture of di Resta with the helmet and hans device on the sidepod makes it look like he’s driving one of those 3 seater F1 cars.
The thing that would make that defence difficult is that the Mercedes race drivers took part in the test. Pirelli have Lucas di Grassi and Jaime Alguersuari as test drivers so they should have been able manage […]
It’d be interesting if they did get a 2 race ban. Imagine a team that’s based in Britain and owned by a German company, with British and German drivers missing out on the British and German GP’s. I’d imagine […]
Dave commented on the post, FIA calls Mercedes to Tribunal over test and dismisses case against Ferrari 8 years, 7 months ago
The rule isn’t that you aren’t allowed to test at all during the season, it’s that you can’t test using a car from this year, last year or some other car which is significantly similar to a current car (I assume […]
I don’t think Keith’s saying that the organisers of the Australian GP invented it, just that it’s good to see when races proudly display their national colours and he used the kerbing at Albert Park as an example.
I understand why the FIA are increasing the tests as some teams are trying to evade the purpose of the rule whilst meeting the letter of the rule.
The unfortunate thing is that some of the work that these teams […]
@keithcollantine But the teams have a finite budget regardless of what they spend it on. If you reduce testing then they’ll obviously spend less money on testing but they won’t just leave the money they saved in […]
Yeah but Vettel wasn’t fighting McLaren at the end of the Championship, they were fighting Ferrari, a car that most agree was slower then the Red Bull. Wouldn’t really be fishing for praise if he goes on about […]
But does the lack of testing really save money? The cash they would have spent on track testing gets spent on simulation, bench testing and wind tunnels, which is not only less accurate then testing the parts on […]
