ferrari and bmw to test again

The F I A has sent a letter to all teams communicating to them that from next race the flat bottoms will be put under an ascending force of the 2000 Newtons.
This, instead of the 500 Newtons used until now. FIA have changed the regulation on the verification of the flat bottoms of the cars, after the letter sent by Mclaren on the first test of season,and Melbourne G.P,requesting an explanation from the FIA,to verify that Ferrari and BMW teams used a wharf between the chassis and the flat mentioned one that could make it flexible, now returns to change it for the G.P of Spain that will dispute the 13 of May. After the technical verifications made in the Great Prizes of Malaysia and Bahrein, the technical commissioner of the FIA, Charlie Whiting, has not been sure of which flat bottoms are not flexible and for that reason it has been decided to quadruplicate the force that will be applied to such, always lacking of wharves and other devices and that is really "flat and rigid". The teams that uses the wharves between the flat bottom and the chassis argues that these are for avoiding that the bottom of the car suffers damages when raises by the curbs.

one rumor runnin in the paddock,and its only aq rumor, that is something very strange that now the FIA decides to change the norm respect to whatever must flexar the bottoms of the car.seems like Bernie want to wipe out the small advantage of the red ones with respect to mclaren. This smells a bit of pact between Ron and Bernie so that the British take the championship. Both they know that only Alonso is able to beat the Italians, but if they leave Mclaren with advantage is very possible that Hamilton also obtains it.

The only problem is not to give to the Spanish a car with the same benefits that the briton. Everything in this life has price.

Strange!!!But lets see if it does make a difference.Ferrari already have removed their flexi floor so i guess i shudnt be a problem anymore.


#6 Apr 25, 2007
I know!!, thats why im suprised now with this "sudden" effort from the FIA to pursuit BMW AND FERRARI (by the way the only teams that can beat the maccas by now)

your gonna say that alonso fans are always looking for complots or sabotage against him
but the affair of the lamp falling down "accidentally" just before the qualy for the race,the stange behavior of the car and the brakes of FA car just after winning his first GP with Mclaren...and now this...

for the first time really looks like bernie wants Mclaren instread ferrari to win the titles. and if hamilton is there or wins over FA..MUCH better for the Bussinen$$$$

Well i hope Kimi is sorted with all the issues he had in Baharain and Malaysia.Ferrari is looking good and so is the mclaren,but i fear Mclaren will only get better as we move into Europe.

I dont think McLaren will make it this season. I sincerely believe that the Ferraris will reign supreme in the rest of the races.
