    FIA to ensure Maclaren equality!!!!

    I read today that the FIA are going to pay close attention to the McLaren team with a view to ensuring equality - I wander how much attention they paid when Ferrari convenienly had Masse stop for 'fuel' just a few laps from the end of the Japanese GP. Can anyone prove he needed fuel? It was mighty convenient that Kimi gained a place and maximum possible points as a result.

    • Some one needs to send observers to watch the FIA !

    • Mosely states "It is not the role of the FIA to court popularity by supporting one party or the other. It is the role of the FIA to ensure that the rules of the sport are respected and that fairness is applied consistently for all competitors."

      My question would be "Where was the FIA when Scott Speed" was sacked? or any other driver from a team during the session.

      Where was the FIA when Irvine was going through his issues with Ferrari?

      Even more interestingly, are the FIA now stating that teams can not have acknowledged #1 drivers? After the issues that Ron Dennis had with Alonso I would not have been a bit surprised to see Ron "sack him" as he so richly deserved. Ron sacked the engineer, so why not the drivers?

      Just what kind of message (if any) are the FIA trying to send.

      Nigel.

      • Good points.

        I really don't understand a lot of what is going on inF1 at the moment.
        I expect it's all explained by sponsors saying, "any more scandals and it's over", or words to that effect. And becouse Alonso has made the most noise about being disadvantaged they are being disingenuously bothered about something that has been part of F1 for years. It's unfortunate for Mclaren that the whole chunk of F1's failings are being taken out on them this year. Or so it seems!

    • Well, what difference does it make if they put 20 guys to watch every McLaren move? A tiny difference in setup (intentional or casual) can easily mean a half a second per lap difference, and what are they going to do? Seize McLaren's computers as "proof" that drivers were not treated evenly?

      FIA's stupid comedy has gone too far, far enough to make Ron Dennis almost likeable. And that's no small feat.

    • I'm afraid that strings are pulled for Hamilton not to win the championship - it is but a feeling though and I hope he will have the strength, and the team as well to prove me wrong. After a season which finally was again worth watching Hamilton and Massa proved that they are exciting drivers, Kimi fast but boring and rigid, while Alonso that he is nothing short of deplorable as a person.

    • I am a Williams supporter have been since they started and Ron and Frank always let there guys race in cars that are the same, thats how they like to go racing..not this #$%$ thats going on now alonso is being made to look a mug by a rare talent ..go for it lewis.

    • well frank did pair montoya with r schumacher and thats just not a pairing you would think of, mind you it nearly worked

      team i miss is minardi, i would have loved them to pull off a mega result

    • must say i have got #$%$ spelling today sorry

    • i had heard that a long time ago about frank too and i also was a williams person, then got bored with the predictable out come off schummy then came back to watching kimi at mcclaren

    • you cant say that alonso is squeaky clean and the fia's golden boy

      frankly there should be an enquiry into why he hasnt been punished for his part and not coming forward sooner as he did have information and anyone who reads it cannot deny he was up to his big fat moaning trap in it
