    I would argue that a referee who succumbs to lobbying shouldn't be in the role in the first place and EVERY team should petition to have a referee like that removed.

    If we took this kind of logic to be correct, then we'd better burn the whole FIA down: first for supporting Masi, then for firing him, at least one of which must have followed lobbying. Though I believe the in-race lobbying to which you allude is necessarily conjecture, rather than proof, since we can't (yet) evaluate the existing intent within someone's mind?

    Don't be threatening people with a good time.

    Throw FIFA and the IOC on there while you're at it.

    All of the UK teams file accounts to Companies House, Ferrari is publically traded and puts out financial reports every year. Alpha Tauri (and also Ferrari) file accounts with the Italian version of Companies House. Only Sauber is able to hide it's exact budget from the world, because Switzerland.

    I've always found that Monaco is the most mind numbing race of the season that's decided on Saturday, or one of those races that makes top 10 lists and is talked about for generations. There seems to he no happy middle


    In other news Raikkonen having another jaunt in Nascar

    New requirement by the FIA that the gearbox can shear from the body of the car as if the car has less mass, it means it will loose speed more quickly.

    Commentary on the formation lap for Stroll and Latifi was brutal

    "They're Canadian, you would expect that they would be use to cold conditions"
    "I thought you were gonna say crashing"

    £25k for breaching the cap rules? They'll take that deal all day long. I seriously hope it's a sliding scale of penalties based on severity.

    Williams missed the deadline to file their accounts, they didn't actually spend over the cap. Penalties for going over the cap start with losing Constructors and Drivers championship points, then go up to race bans, then disqualification from both championships, then the final tier of punishments is to lower the offending team's budget cap for the following season(s).

    I find the last one brilliant, I can't wait to see one of the big teams wind up with a budget 10% lower than everyone else. It'll happen.

    Wonder if we'll get an arrows situation were the team runs the formation lap, pulls in and retires to save a bit of money

    I suspect there might be some "strategic retirements", especially if someone has a poor quali.

    I think red bull have finally learned from all those years of chasing mercedes coat tails, it doesn't really matter that much if you're fastest through the corners, as long as you have an advantage on the straight you can overtake and win.
