Colin Kolles – the new Paul Stoddard?

Spyker lodged an official complaint about the cars of the Super Aguri Team, after they jumped from back markers last season, to solid midfielders in Australia earlier today. However the Stewards at Albert Park dismissed the protest saying it was a commercial issue, not the responsibilty of the FIA.

Team Boss Colin Kolles will now seek arbitration, saying that the Toro Rosso and Super Aguri teams should not be eligible for World Championship points as their cars are not legal. Williams publicly backed this claim several weeks ago, but it is believed that this course of action is secretly backed by McLaren, Renault, Toyota, the FIA and Bernie Ecclestone amongst others.

It is likely that it will take months until we see any conclusion to this story.
