F1 SPYING SCANDAL DEEPENS AND WORSENS AND THEN DEEPENS A BIT MORE AGAIN

There was almost no shock whatsoever in Formula 1 this week with news that the FIA is to investigate Renault for spying. According to a man who was speaking next to the FIA building, ‘Following a tip off from an anonymous source in the Modena region of Italy we are looking in to claims that Renault Formula 1 have contravened the rules of the sport and may be docked points both for utilising illegally acquired data and for competing in a car that wasn’t red’. The speakersman refused to give any more details has he had to rush off ‘to give Jean Todt a back massage’.

However, some F1 insiders have already hinted that Renault may not be the last team to become embroiled in an embarrassing and ultimately costly McLaren-style scandal. High ranking sources are suggesting that it is only a matter of days until every other F1 team is called up on spying charges, except Ferrari who have of course never cheated at anything. Already, in the special paddock that all teams assemble in during the off season to allow sentences like this rumours are circulating that Williams may have been using data from BMW, that BMW may have been using data from Toyota, that Toyota may have been using data from Torro Rosso, that Torro Rosso may have been using data from Super Aguri, that Super Aguri may have been using data from Spyker, that Spyker may have been using data from Red Bull, that Red Bull may have been using data from Honda and that Honda may have been using data from the 1991 Leyton House team, but upside down so that none of it worked properly.

If these rumours are proved to be true the FIA may be forced to minimise the damage to F1 by bring this whole affair to a sharp and definite conclusion, a view shared by one senior junior. ‘One way of doing this would be simply to say that all teams are forbidden from scoring points until 2025, except Ferrari’ he admitted. ‘Frankly, it would be a lot more straightforward than the original way they were going to use to get that rule introduced’.

'Aww'ing happily

I have to thank

deltachild for this.  Thank you, you've made me happy :D  

 

Theres this article on pitpass.com - heres the link http://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpass_news_item.php?fes_art_id=33377 and its about Christian looking to stay in F1.  Obviously we knew this was his plan for the whole of the last year, but now, what with the merry-go-round slowing and Alonso on the prowl for open seats, its all go.

Upon hearing last week that Christian would be testing for Force India, i squeeed happily, but this article made me 'awww'

"Considering the way in which younger drivers have performed in this year's Formula One Championship, including those whom I have raced against and beaten in lower formulae, I am very happy with the interest being shown in me. I still have a lot of work to do in order for everything to work oout the way I want, but following the agreement with the Honda Racing F1 Racing team I am now in a position to give other opportunities my full commitment, commencing with testing for the Etihad Aldar Force India F1 Team." 

As

deltachild said, and I quote, because all I can do here is agree, "Aaaw. Such a moment of 'I can do it tooooo' and then 'People LIKE me' as well :) Of course at the end of that article is mention of Force India God, Christian and Liuzzi are going to be so fed up of having to go against each other for race drives. *crosses fingers*"

Its going to be interesting to see who comes out top from Christian and Tonio, but yay for them testing anyhow.  This article, for the moment, will go up in pride of place on my wall, even though the print out of it means the writing is absolutely teeny...

Man I so badly want to go to Budapest for the race next season and see if I can go meet Christian, properly this time.  Anyone interested?  Its celebrating, the race, my 21st and the finishing of Uni....

 

EDIT: as LJ is being annoying to me at the moment and moving stuff around without my permission, I apologise for the lack of flow in my entry and any random spaces that happen to have appeared... bad LJ!
