And the rules change again...
Now the FIA look stupid, having to change the engin rules after just one race, threatening to send Honda ten places down the grid. Will Michael suffer the same consequences?
The engine rule is goning to be almost impossible to enforce. By the next race you can have a 'blow-up' button on the wheel and push it after every race.
What would happen if say a car completed the race and during the warm-down lap that engine 'failed'?
Michael could have finished the race... as Michael says: "my car was slightly damaged and there was no point in going on"
doesn't sound like engine failure to me, sounds like someone was out of the points, had some suspension problems and thought we'll save the car and have a new engine next race.
What MS experienced does not look bad enough TO ME to be a cause for potential long term trouble but then again ... I'm not a TOIT lawyer.
And they don't reduce costs.
FIA rules change everyday...
