Somehow the tone and timing of this "Confession" letter from McLaren does not seem right! It seems like there is a larger story behind the screen which we will never know. I cannot read the stuff on the net and feel that the right thing has happened. Something is missing...

Next year, if McLaren loose, everyone will say that they were good in 2007 because of Ferrari info and if they win, everyone will say that there is more Ferrari stuff on the car and hence they won! This is never going to go away for McLaren!

Ron should quit and after about 2 years write a book which will tell a story...a very interesting story!

Default What a Shame

Even i am not convinced that the whole truth is out. It seems it is worse than what Macca makes us to believe. I am getting fed up with politics, spy scandals, engine freeze etc. To me F1 is about using technology for better car in terms of speed and safety.

Also regarding ban on tyre blanket warmers, i am not sure this is a good idea as the cars may lose control if the tyre is not sufficiently warm. I do not have much of knowledge in this. Guys please comment...

With the FIA indirectly supporting Ferrari, we cannot expect Mclaren to win any of the WCC/WDC

why are you making you opinion seem as the truth is beyond me,do you have any proof to show us the truth about what you are saying,just because you believe that FIA is biased doesn't make it a truth and others opinion seem less knowledgeable,just speculating is not going to get anywhere.

Atleast when i say they are not biased i can use some Facts

1)2006 FIA banned the mass dampers on complaint of Ron Dennis(Mclaren) affecting both Renault and Ferrari.-Benefit Mclaren
2)2007 FIA punished Mclaren for lying about ferrari info which they have now accepted to using.-Benefit Ferrari
3)2007 FIA did not punish Renault because FIA felt that Renault were being frank and did not use the info.-Benefit Renault
4)In brazil 2007 Mclaren were not punished heavily for using extra set of tyres.-Benefit Mclaren
5)Michael Schumacher was given 2 sec penalty for overtaking on red while entering the pit.-Benefit Renault,Mclaren
6)Michael schumacher was send to back of grid on monaco 2006.-Benefit Renault,Mclaren
7)2007 Brazil fuel saga-Benifit Ferrari,Williams,BMW
8)Drivers exempted from stepygate punishment.-Benefit Mclaren.

@merve_extreme
As I said in my post, I'd like to put all this back and just go racing... but I can open a can of worms on here to show how the FIA is biased and how Ferrari has benefitted from seemingly fair and innocent descisions made by the FIA.
Let me know if you can handle it and I will bring it on.

Hi guys, while some of us wait for something to hit the fan around here, I thought fellow F1 fans could do with a touch of humor... Hence I present this, the first few pages where Ian Mill lays out the case against Renault will have you cracking up in no time - a major case of the Pot calling the Kettle black methinks !

Can't wait for all the highly confidential & previously unpublished evidence of the collusion between the FIA & Ferrari that's going to be divulged here soon ! Conspiracy theorists rock, one can always depend on them for a laugh, or two !

Just out of curiosity does the rule changes before the 2005 season (psst....to stop a rampant Micheal Schumacher and Ferrari in his tracks) qualify as the FIA being biased towards Ferrari?
