What hair brain thought this gimmick up? If they want a moveable rear wing then the driver should have total control! Not someone from outside the car giving the driver the OK to push the button. Stupid, stupid, stupid! So,let me get this straight, they have KERS and the moveable rear wing? Crazy. Use one or the other. I Thought Formula 1 was all in a tiff about the wings flexing etc. Now they want to let the whole thing move? Go back to the drawing board!

I am with Randy, the Ecleston Circus is becoming just that - a circus. Indeed, what am I saying, it is already there. Get back to where it was the Driver of the car and his ability to out wit his opposition. Jack Brabham was from an era where his cars were inferior in power but superior in handling to the remainder of the field. He and Denny Hulme went on to World Championships driving BY THE SEAT OF THEIR PANTS. By the way, they generally did it for very little money other than the love of the sport also.
