Wolf is taking a break

After almost 4 years the wolf is tired and needs a break. The motivation is no longer there. With that also is gone the willingness to voluntarily sacrifice all the time needed to keep the site going. Even that bare minimum of time the wolf devoted to the site in 2010 … So, after a […]

Ferrari vs FIA – Round 1 – Ferrari lost, Advantage FIA

The Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris has rejected Ferrari’s injunction against the FIA’s rule changes for 2010.

Ferrari was told by French legal authorities on Wednesday that it did not have a valid reason to block plans for a £40 million voluntary budget cap.

Not much more has been said at the moment.

2009 Monaco GP Preview

Monaco Grand Prix

Monaco Grand Prix

Besides all the politics and negotiations and courts there is still F1 racing going on. It is Monaco weekend. Let’s start with a reminder that unlike the other GPs, the Monaco weekend starts on Thursday with the first two practice sessions, Friday is day off.

Usually the teams arrive in Monaco with heavily revised, much more downforce generating aero package. The new regulations however restrict the teams in what they can do with the downforce and as a result we may not see as many obvious changes as in the past few years.


Quick summary on FIA vs teams situation

Ferrari and FIA - allies no more ...

Ferrari and FIA - allies no more ...

The latest version of 2010 Formula 1 regulations triggered an open conflict between FIA and the current F1 teams. Several teams were unhappy with both what is in the regulations and how the regulations were pushed through. Toyota, Red Bull, Renault announced they will not enter 2010 season if the regulations remain unchanged but the cherry on the pie was the similar announcement made by Ferrari a week ago. The teams met with Bernie Ecclestone and Max Mosley last Friday to discuss the ways how to end the stalemate. The initial reports were that no progress was made but the interviews Mosley and Ecclestone gave to BBC seem to tell a bit different story. The only things we heard from teams are that Ferrari are taking FIA to court (today) and that Toyota’s John Howett was trying to get all the teams to walk out of the meeting …

No agreement between teams and FIA, Ferrari takes FIA to court – Updated

The teams met with Bernie Ecclestone and max Mosley yesterday to discuss the 2010 regulations and perhaps also to try to avoid the looming crisis. After reading different reports on what happened yesterday it is quite difficult to tell where the F1 stands following this meeting.


Ferrari ups the ante …

Max Mosley said F1 can go on even without Ferrari. Bernie Ecclestone said he would protect interests of Ferrari. Here is the Ferrari view: “The same rules for all teams, stability of regulations, the continuity of the FOTA’s endeavours to methodically and progressively reduce costs, and governance of Formula 1 are the priorities for the […]


FIA, FOTA, the budget cap and the high stakes poker game

If getting attention was the ultimate goal of Max Mosley’s budget cap and “two tier F1″ regulations then he definitelly achieved it. Several teams (Toyota, Red Bull/Toro Rosso) suggested they will not enter “two tier 2010 F1 championship”, and even Ferrari’s board of directors is to discuss the Italian squad’s future in Formula 1 today.
