Without a doubt, the sponsors dictate the course of this, it's up to them and where they want their names.

Red Bull Racing has dismissed talk that its new exhaust configuration is pushing the limits of Formula 1's technical regulations, despite suggestions from rival teams that the FIA may need to look at it.

...and will be a PR disaster should it actually take place. Sponsors or not, most will be very gun shy of bad association which could turn on a dime.

Good to see Kubica behind the wheel (of something) again. Kubica and Blazusiak are my wifes favorites.

On the other hand, I cannot wait for the season to start this week. Ferrari sandbagging...redbull dominance in 1212...Mclaren hitting the deck running this year...time to put up...

In F1, the imaginative and clever ways in which engineers exploit the technical regulations is matched only by the speed and consistency with which the duller engineers run to mommy to whinge when someone else does it better.

It 'was brought to Montecatini by some of his friends and was delighted to be both the structure of the track. was the first time, among other things, running and felt after the incident that hit last month .. He immediately touched the track record.

Great. I really hope to see Kubica recover and return to the drivers seat of an F1 car.

You're right about the whining. But sometimes they cheat, too. Ferrari says the Red Bull solution is something most teams considered. Not sure if a final decision has been rendered on whether or not Red Bull is legal?
