Permission denied and the world moves on.
Good deal me thinks. The gadget quotient is about maxed...

Lotus Renault GP (LRGP) have been on one of the teams most innovative with their suspension over the past decade. As RenaultF1 They introduced the Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) back in 2006 and have since raced conventional Inerters. Inerters are a special component in the suspension to counteract spring effect of the Tyres\Suspension, using a spinning mass on a threaded rod to control these loads. LRGP have also been one of the teams racing hydraulically interlinked suspension and have looked at other ways to legally alter the suspensions performance. It seems this work has lead to the discovery of a new form of Inerter, primarily using fluid for the Inerter effect. This new development has been termed by the team a “Fluid Inerter”.

Eric Boullier has certainly done a good job in my opinion. (perhaps the lack of financial planning for 2011 aside)

Adrian Sutil says he will take time to reflect and consider his next career move after receiving a suspended sentence for assaulting Lotus team co-owner Eric Lux. Sutil was given an 18-month suspended sentence and a 200,000 euro [$263,000] fine, which will be given to charity, for injuring Lux in an incident in a Shanghai nightclub following last year's Chinese Grand Prix.
The 29-year-old German does not currently have a Formula 1 seat for 2012, having been replaced at Force India by Nico Hulkenberg and seen Bruno Senna taking the last major vacancy at Williams.
"Maybe I will take some time out now," Sutil told Reuters as he left the court in Munich. "Maybe I will do something completely different, think about things in peace."
Sutil had argued in court that he had tried to settle the row afterwards, and hoped that this had now been achieved.
"At least I shook Mr. Lux's hand," said Sutil. "That's a good thing."

This article originally appeared in Autosport.com
I guess that resolves any questions....

Former Force India driver Adrian Sutil has been found guilty of “grievous bodily harm” by a German court for his altercation with Lotus F1 team co-owner Eric Lux.

The pair tangled in a Shanghai nightclub following last year’s Chinese Grand Prix.

Sutil claims he only meant to dump champagne on Lux’s head, but somehow Lux was cut on the neck by broken glass.

In an earlier recounting of events, Lux said, “I realized in the elevator what had just happened and I thought to myself, ‘now you have three minutes to live.’” Lux fully recovered from his injuries, but proceeded to press the assault charge against Sutil.

As Autosport reports, Sutil was found guilty of causing the neck injury to Lux with a champagne glass, and was given an 18-month suspended sentence. Sutil was also fined 200,000 euros ($263,560) for the assault, which will be donated to charity.

Even into the trial, the German driver maintained that his actions were accidental, and that he never meant to injure Lux. The Washington Post reports that Sutil had “tried everything” to settle with Lux before the verdict was issued, but his efforts were rebuffed.

Lux claims that all he really wanted was a face-to-face apology, which Sutil never offered.

Following the verdict, Sutil claimed to be relieved that the case was behind him and that, “I am in the clear with Eric Lux.” He may be in the clear, but Sutil’s prospects for any kind of ride in Formula 1 this season are growing dimmer by the minute.

both Renault's beat Sutil. Maybe Lux just told him he sucked?
