    Mercedes caught with their pants down. Not sure how they will get out of this one unscathed.
    Basically testing in season is banned specifically with current car and drivers, the car must be at least 2 years old. This has caused a massive stink amongst the other 10 F1 teams [us included] as it breaks one of the most critical rules in F1 laid out by the FIA.

    No idea at this point, anywhere from a massive fine to being thrown out of this years Championship or something inbetween.

    Worse for the Mercedes F1 team is that certain board members of Daimler, already want Mercedes out of F1 and it could be just the excuse they are looking for.

    If F1 comes down too hard they just shoot themselves in the foot.

    On a Germans helmet [ oh dear ]

    You might need to zoom in a bit.

    Thanks for posting Sparky! That last video of MW made me remember my M3 convertible, the only thing I played in the CD player was a sound track of F1 cars. I wonder what I did with that CD. F1 is also the reason I was so hell bent on driving an E60 M5. I do miss the days of the V10 F1 cars.

    Keep up the good work, as Seb says. It's everyone that works on the team that is responsible for providing a car that can win a world championship.Click here to enlarge

    the rev limiter used t9 be at 19.000 before it was lowered to 18.000.
    the engines are capable of more, so I guesstimate 19.500 rpm when totally without a rev limiter.
