Ferrari used a 2011 car run by their subsidiary Corse Clienti, while Mercedes used this year's car run by the team. Big difference. It would appear that Ferrari complied with regs, assuming the FIA was notified.

I thought they did a piss poor job of explaining why Rosberg got bumped to the front of the line behind the Safety Car. Kind of mumbled through like they didn't fully understand.

PS- I'm with you Syd, in realizing last year that Rosberg may have more talent than his results had shown.

Huh, I thought they were switching back to steel belts. Good.

From another thread, from :24 to 1:47, video of Fangio at a very different Monaco with nat sound.

Clearly that is the Sears catalog and the setup sheet is being used as a bookmark.

So where can I get some of this V519 engine oil? Does a free RS30 engine come with that if I buy 10 quarts?

You know what would have been an even bigger difference, Red Bull running that test for Pirelli and winning in Monaco! That would have made for some interesting reading don't you think..

FIA drop case against Ferrari but call upon the International Tribunal to look into the Mercedes/Pirelli test
