RBR finally proven to use illegally flexing wings

What has changed with Stewards vs RBR?

Peter Ps arrival at Mclaren and Ron has 'let the cat out the bag' maybe while looking for approval for their own wing

and traction control

When Seb said last year 'they will never figure it out' he either meant the sprung leaf devices symmetrically hidden at the front or he meant the TC, he was wrong about one

technically speaking, although the car passed scrutineering, it could still be illegal, therefore its reasonably arguable that all his WDCs are likely to have been won with an illegal car

You would have to prove that the leaf spring was in all the front wings for the last 4 years

RedBull. Gives you Flexi-Wings.

An obvious, but I think still funny, joke.

Yes you would, however that wouldnt get the results changed, but you can now easily argue that the 4 WDCs were done with an illegal car by circumstantial evidenve

e.g - we have see the vidieos of the excess flex each season
The stewards have changed the tests and tried many times to catch them each season
Now they have concrete proof this season

Cant change the results but everyone can reasonably say the car was illegal before as well

So RBR have cheated 4 years of titles - evidence - video of flex -proof of illegality of said flex - Abu Dhabi 2014

It can not be true as I have the proof that Redbull does not give you wings. So any items that have leaf springs must just be debris it picked up on track

RBR thought they were been clever when they tweeted the picture of McLarens new copy of their wing and said 'Red Bull gives you wings'

More like Red Bull - bends your wings :hehe:

Going back to the poll question though, now that we know that it was a simple trick deviously hidden inside carbon fibre, then it can be no coincidence that mcLaren turn up with the same wing, then dont run it in quali and lo and behold the stewards know exactly where to look

This is the Ronster at work, you have to marvel at his tactical genius really. Maybe McLaren presented their wing to The head steward and innocently said 'is this hidden sprung leaf design ok?' and then sat back to count their total gain apart from 2 grid places and the weakening of their likely closest rival next year behind Merc.

lets face it Horner is like a baby when it comes to skulldugery compared to a hardened veteran like Ron

Horner just said on Sky there is no spring.

So that's that cleared up then.

He's on again saying that they've gone back to the Brazil wing. I guess he's already laying his defence against accusations theyve run it all season, and even before that.

:hehe:


On the BBC, didnt he say something like 'it's not a leaf spring, it's a metal strip with a degree of flexibility'?
