Arrow World Motor Sport Council Transcripts - Downloadable

http://www.fia.com/mediacentre/Press...190907-01.html

I havent gone through them in detail. Would take me a better part of the week to go through them and have a view on the findings.

Would make for an interesting read, as this is something which was missing from the previous FIA verdicts.

The strange part is that the FIA for some reason have not checked McLarens 2007 contender.

After going thru the whole transcription, It is definitely clear that Ferrari was the favourites in this case. It is somewhat biased in my opinion. Poor Mclaren!

If the 2008 McLaren is 20% similar to the 2008 Ferrari, McLaren will be in trouble.

Apparently Hamiltion didnt have much to say either ways. The more I read it the more its evident that the FIA for some reason didnt take up the obvious choice of ascertaining if Ferrari IP was on McLaren, which would be to scrutinize McLaren's car.
Instead they just stuck to the exchange of SMS and documents.

Got this in an email
And the story never ends….

A day before releasing the nearly 200 pages of World Motor Sport Council transcripts to the public on Wednesday, the FIA had sent the documents to both teams so that confidential technical and financial information could be redacted.

But when the PDF documents were initially made available on the internet, it soon became clear that the blackened sections could easily be revealed if copy-pasted into another text editor.
The offending copies were quickly removed from the FIA website and replaced.
But a plethora of sensitive information, including not only technical team and car details but private figures such as suspended McLaren chief designer Mike Coughlan's annual salary, and the precise weight distribution of the MP4-22 and also systems adopted by Ferrari, is therefore now widely known in various corners of the formula one world.
The philosophy of variable brake balance systems on both the McLaren and the Ferrari was also inadvertently revealed by the FIA, as well as details about Ferrari's unique method of inflating its tyres, and other secrets.
