Red Bull in murky waters?

Post by darwin dali »

The FIA's rules for 2008 and beyond are designed to accommodate the possibility for a smaller team to 'buy' a complete car from one of its rivals, but the resistance of some teams was made evident in a recent vote to block Super Aguri from using a Honda chassis next year.

There have also been rumblings about potential legal action, headed by Williams and supported by Spyker and Super Aguri, against Red Bull's rumoured plans to run four near-identical Adrian Newey-designed cars under the guise of its two teams in 2007.

F1 is all about constructor vs constructor, its kind of unique in that sense! i dont really like the way they are heading with customer chassis.
the only way i can sorta agree is if a customer team uses an older chassis not a current spec like redbull would have for their 2 teams.
keep voting against it i say to those who have!
