This is clearly following a complaint from Merc vs Red Bull. Not a great fan of this behind the scenes sniping to try to hobble opponents.
But you were ok with the PU modes being banned mid-season last year, and ok with RBR's lobbying to have them banned, right?
And before you get miffed with me, just let me say that I'm saying that with my tongue firmly in my cheek. I don't really care if you're being inconsistent, I'm just slightly amused and hope you see the humor in it too. I perfectly understand that you fear RBR being hobbled and robbing us of a great fight this season, because I sort of feel the same way too.
There's a part of me that agrees that the rules should be enforced, and RBR should be trying to work within those rules. And if those rules are being broken/bent, then the FIA should step in to make sure everybody is playing fairly. But there's another part of me that thinks that, even if they are pushing the rules (after all, they meet the testing criteria) is it really so bad? It's not a magic bullet and we're in desperate need of competition.
This is the first season I can remember in a long while that I've been excited about, because I get to watch two rather good drivers going head-to-head for the win. I don't want that taken away from me because of a small rule infringement.
Because let's be honest - if RBR DO have a bendy rear wing, it's probably the thing that's helping balance out Merc's seeming race pace advantage.
