I thought it was funny, the best thing he's ever posted, actually.

I may have misunderstood the report on the proposed new limits on engine mapping. But it sure sounds like that 2% variance would make even Red Bull's Sunday Hockenheim map illegal.

If that's the case, I wonder how many other teams will have to also change their engine maps in what might be a new, highly restrictive regulatory environment? And what effect would that have on form? A new order?

Or I misunderstood. :)

For many months since Robert Kubica suffered the accident in the rally that left the competition in F1. Since then, the Pole has always been among doctors and hospitals, trying to recover from the operations were performed in both the arm and in the right hand . After the hospital days pass, we could see how Kubica was slowly being better and began to appear in the media.

Awaiting his return


The rumors and comments showed up immediately. Many claimed that the Polish would never return to F1, while others hoped that after recovery, Kubica could return to driving a car . His return this year is impossible, as for next season, where the potential market of F1 are almost minimal. Thus, Kubica will have another year to further recover and see if you can to drive a F1 in 2014. In any case, the pilot continues normal lives and attending motor sport events can. For example, this weekend, Kubica was at the Rally Citt di Lucca, which took place very near where he lives. As did know one of the attendees, Kubica got there driving his own car . Also, did some pictures with his followers, including Michaela Baldini, who did not hesitate to upload the image to your Twitter account. Apparently, Kubica had a normal attitude, but did not allow this fan saw his right hand, revealed itself Baldini.

I usually dislike extended opens, but that's really rather good.

It's interesting that halfway through the season, only Lotus has tried to replicate the Mercedes DRS ducting.

Red Bull... let off the hook once more

Translated via Google from German (so pardon the grammar)

Quote:
The relationship between Red Bull and the FIA ​​is disturbed. The defending champions feel persecuted by the stewards. Team adviser Helmut Marko was recently clear words for the ongoing sanctions. But now comes out that the governing body would have Red Bull in the worst case, even three times to take out of the race.
Those who believe in conspiracy theories, now might be suspicious. Red Bull teams stood in comparison to other disproportionately the focus of the Sports Authority. There was the theater of the holes in the ground at the GP of Monaco. Then the ban on air tour of the front axle. Then the charges of allegedly illegal motor maps in Hockenheim.




In Monte Carlo, Hockenheim had team boss Christian Horner and technical director Adrian Newey least four hours before the race to report to the Stewards. "This is not ideal for race preparation," said Sebastian Vettel.
Red Bull feels discriminated against FIA decisions

However, some decisions of race stewards at the race came the Red Bull executives to sour. For example, the drive-through penalty for Vettel in Barcelona, ​​as he rushed past with DRS open to the yellow flags and it was even faster than in the previous round. Strained Michael Schumacher not the same three races later in Valencia? Schumacher was spared a prison sentence. Rightly so, because the DRS was still open, but Schumacher clearly slower.
For example, the use of safety car in Valencia because of debris on the track. In the opinion of Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko was the only Vettel's huge lead evaporate on the field. At Hockenheim, the safety car was in a similar situation in the garage. Felipe Massa had distributed the parts of his front wing on the line.
Here the objection of Red Bull is entitled, as the future of tire failure Lewis Hamilton proves. But then one should not complain about Valencia. And then the penalty for overtaking Sebastian Vettel off the track, what Marko rewrote the "death penalty for stealing chickens."
Conspiracy against Red Bull?

At the Red Bull camp is sometimes the word conspiracy. For two reasons one remembered when considering malicious. The FIA ​​wants to prevent a third world title by Vettel and Red Bull? Or is the punishment that will restrict Red Bull in conjunction with Bernie Ecclestone, the FIA's role in the future to the inspector?
The world governing body, the allegations out of hand. Quite the contrary. Red Bull would have been really in sight, then it would have been three times this year given the option to disqualify the team. For example, because the holes in the base plate before the rear wheels. As the governing body did justice with mercy. Red Bull was allowed to drive. Jean Todt sat down in person to ensure that the protesting team's feet were still. After the regulations have been clarified. Slots were not allowed holes.
In Montreal, the FIA ​​inspectors Red Bull drew attention even before the first practice that they would not tolerate the passage of the air brake ducts, by the axis of the wheel, because this is a moveable aerodynamic aids. From FIA sources said: "If we had something against Red Bull, as we are accused, we would wait until the investigation after the race and allowing them to run into the knife."
Red Bull had to modify the chassis adjustment

The third case leaked out only at the edge of the Hungarian GP. In Montreal, the governing body discovered on the third shock in front of Red Bull to unauthorized adjustment RB8. On the setting of the damper depends from the ground clearance at the front axle. This should not change between qualifying and race. Because adjustments by hand to the guard in the pits would be difficult to detect, the FIA ​​has adopted the rule that all the suspension adjustments are to be operated with one tool.
In the case of Red Bull but it was easily possible with the bare hand. Anyone who thinks evil imply, might that was in the race previously adjusted between training and racing of ground clearance, without noticing that the Commissioner in the pits. The FIA ​​had at Red Bull, the remedy promptly, without it hanging from the rooftops. Rule, experts say: "It would have to disqualify Red Bull loose in Canada."
