  1. Agree! Glad we settled at least that...
  2. Look mates, I'm so tired of all this... Everything I quote seems to come from dubious tabloid sites... When I asked for your help to guide me to the truthful sources you hold, I got no answer... Almost all Ferrari fans seem to deliberately avoid certain questions... When I asked for arguments I got none... All I got is sarcasm and hubris... It seems that's the best you can do... I'm starting to believe that someone is stealing (and eating) my mushrooms after all...
  3. If you care to read yesterday's posts, you'll notice that at 3:36 I invited you (and in a rather friendly way) to be my guest and write about McLaren's hypocricy...
  4. Time For Some Clarrifcations...

    Ferrari's floor passed the FIA test only when the car was stationary... Which is a different situation from a moving car... The Ferrari case: What happens if the team in question is not Ferrari: What happened in Australia: Indeed, what's so difficult to uderstand about this?... And I believe with the written statement from CW (in bold) everything is cleared on this subject... As well as that the "Midland" incident mentioned earlier gives us an example of "equal treatment"...
  5. Time For Some Clarrifcations...

    @Fed up: Thank you for your post, as I believe it clarifies some statements I made on another thread.
  6. Time For Some Clarrifcations...

    So, an "idiot", "mashroom-eater", "pathetic", "fanatic after Ferrari" reader of this forum, simply asks you, oh Great Beholders of the Truth to inform him, quoting your credible sources of information, once and for all to reply on the subject of the floor. Just give us the link to the FIA decision on that one. That simple.
  7. It's the way you interpret things, my friend. If I did change the subject in a thread under a certain title, you could easily still accuse me of beeing off-topic. Wouldn't you? And excuse me if I don't participate on threads that I find less interersting... McLaren asked FIA if they could use a similar floor. They did not have to change theirs. See? That's what I mean when I say that Ferrari fans believe they are the only blessed of knowing the truth. Three different sources are all dubious tabloids using weasel words! I'd be glad to hear from you the sources you consider credible, my friend. Do you have any inside information that we don't? If so, please share your knowledge with us. Why won't you? There is a lot to discuss on criminals' psychology and why they 'choose' to do 'stupid things'. And that's exactly what I believe in Coughlan's case... As I mentioned, some people have descretionary memory... All you had to do was to go back and read your post, my friend... Ah, 'whined to the press'!... And I thought that if a protest is not lodged formally it is 'inadmissible'... But it seems that in some cases 'whinnig to the press' is all one has to do... Which takes us back to the 'guessing game' I mentioned in my previous post... Good morning and have a nice day!
  8. And now, back to the arguments, since some people seem to have discretionary memory... From autosport.com "Both Ferrari and BMW Sauber use a sprung device to mount the front section of floor on their cars. In Ferrari's case, at least, this part was already in use at the end of last season, as pointed out in autosport.com's 2006 Brazilian GP Technical Review." Didn't I mention it was Ferrari and BMW? From Planet-F1 (Editorial by Andrew Davies) "The floor device that allowed the floor to flex up under load was particularly contentious because it worked on a similar principal to the air restrictor that got Toyota thrown out of the World Rally Championship in the mid-90s and banned the year after." Any comparison between FIA's reaction towards Toyota and Ferrari?... From grandprix.com "There are also questions about the way that the FIA handled the question of the Ferrari floor at the Australian Grand Prix. The device was deemed to be illegal a few days after the Australian GP." So, your intelligence tells you something different?... Well, it doesn't surprise me... ...and I'll leave the guessing game to yours... As I quoted, Toyota was thrown out of the WRC for a similar device... Didn't I already mention Alonso, De La Rosa and Coughlan? So, what's your point?... Regarding Taylor and Neale, they were shown 2 images (out of 780 pages) by Coughlan and still (if we are to believe their statements) they didn't know that was Ferrari's material. But even if we accept they knew, still those 5 persons are far from being the McLaren team... BTW, does your intelligence really accept that Coughlan send his wife to a local copy store with 780 pages (that's about one and a half of the copy paper packs you use for your printer!) of highly classified stolen documents to scan them??? Does it really?... That's interesting!!! I did; as well as Theissen's statements: "It has become quite clear that the regulations state a very precise difference of temperature of 10 degrees (centigrade) but they do not define precisely how and when the two reference points are taken," BMW team boss Mario Theissen told Autosport. "That is the issue and in my view it should not have gone to the Court of Appeal but to the Technical Working Group in order for the technical directors to come up with a clear regulation on how to do it in the future." Most teams (including Ferrari in the past) set up their T-cars for each of their drivers in succession (race after race). Did Alonso lodged a formal protest against his team? I can't recall anything like that...
  9. Well, so far in this forum I've been accused as a "mushroom-eater", "pathetic" and now I'm "fanatic". However, more than a few times I've made it clear that I just express my personal views and opinions (as you could easily find out reading my posts - I recently invited tifosi too! to start a thread titled "Even more shameless hypocrites... etc" concerning my favourite team - how "fanatic" does this one make me?)... On the other hand, most Ferrari fans (at least in this forum) state their opinions as the one and only truth! Sure I won't change my mind beeing accused as a "mushroom-eater", "pathetic" or "fanatic", since I don't consider such statements as arguments, but rather as wisecracks from those who have nothing to say to support their opinions. I am always willing to accept any rational arguments (care to read my reply to wapi?)... My sig applies to my posts as well as all other posts I read in here...
  10. First off, welcome to the forum wapi. As I recall, only Ferrari and BMW had movable floors and McLaren did not asked FIA to improve its tests, but it asked if they (McLaren) could use a similar floor, to which FIA response was negative and the movable floor was announced as illegal. Still the question remains if FIA would have taken any action against Ferrari if McLaren had not brought up the situation. At a later time it was revealed (I think from Stepney) that Ferrari already knew that their design could cause them trouble, still they decided to use it hoping that FIA wouldn't find out... You are right about McLaren's gearbox, however I believe that FIA's reaction should be analogous to that towards Ferrari's floor. Only a few days before the Brazil GP hearing, Ecclestone stated that he would retire if Hamilton was to be pronounced champion... Don't forget that at least in two occasions it was Ron Dennis who informed FIA about information on the subject. That tells me that there were employees who knew what was going on (Coughlan, Alonso, De La Rossa) but the team had no information on that. That's why I believe that FIA should punish those individuals and not the team as a whole. I might remind you that a FIA Technical Delegate measure and recorded both fuel and ambient temperature. So, it's their employee's report that they (FIA) doubt. As of McLaren's refusal to supply their telemetry data, maybe they should be included to the next post "Even more shameless hypocrites devoid of any integrity" (tifosi too! be my guest )... You are also right about the TWG, however "the procedure was wrong" is not an answer. As I read somewhere an answer would be "McLaren are right" or "McLaren are wrong". Even BMW's Theissen insisted on a rules clarification on that matter after the hearing. Finally, I don't believe there is such thing as Divine Intervention, neither do I believe that Hamilton would wait till the final GP to show us his lack of talent when he was almost inerrable right from his very first F1 GP. As far as I know, there is no such regulation concerning No. 1 and 2 drivers. There is only a regulation about team orders. However, it is true that in Shoemaker's times most of the times the T-car was set according to his settings rather than Barrichello's. Moreover, although there is no such regulation, FIA assigned a supervisor on McLaren during the Brazilian GP to ensure equal treatment of their drivers!
  11. Nah... This is a red-fan pet practice and we (the pathetic McLaren fans) might be accused of stealing other people's ideas!!! So, let's just stick to the mushrooms...
  12. Hmmm... Now that I think of it...
  13. The Renault spy incident is a totally different one from Stepneygate, my friend... McLaren's technical data were found inside Renault's mainframe computer and no Renault employee has denied the facts so far...
  14. Correction: that was Max Mosley's interview... And we could spend the whole day writing more bad things about the '07 season...
  15. Lewis Isn't The Greatest

    Working in advertising for well over 15 years and having the opportunity to closely scan more than a lot of polls, I can assure you that each poll is carefully planned to bring up the results we want for our customers. Who shall we ask? What shall we ask? etc, etc... So, it doesn't matter if the sample is 1.500 or 8.500 respondents, we'll still get the result we want!... Amazing? However, this poll tells us absolutely nothing about Lewis... He has only raced for one season, while others on the list have raced for years! The only comparison that could be made is that of who of them had the best results in his first season. Care to poll on that one?... No?... Guessed so... Lewis is a hell of a racer and we'll just have to wait until the 'great' Showmaker will be announced 'the previous Hamilton'... BTW: Kubica is one of my favorites as well...
