    Sorry? How is moral ambiguity connected in any way to the relative power wielded by this site?

    The #1 rule in this forum is:

    "You will not state a desire to see a driver crash or be harmed."

    Applauding bottle-throwing no-marks is exactly that.


    If a person was to actively voice the opinion that black people are vermin and should be eradicated from the Earth, do you think no-one here should complain as it's "not like GTP Forums are a governing body of anyone"?

    Most societies have something called the Court of Public Opinion. It's far stronger than laws of the nation; of course, the back of every ticket sold in the United States regarding any public event (concert, race, ball game, etc.) has disclaimers on the back stating it's illegal to throw anything on the field. It also says how and if refunds can be expected, but usually nothing short of pure cancellation grants you that right.

    In this case, we wish to call anyone who throws anything on a field, track, court, or stage an ****ing moron.

    Shaun. Read. Reread. Rereread. THEN reply.

    I wasn't addressing you AT ALL. Nor was I saying that anyone is racist.

    Well, I strongly suggest that you don't act like an idiot here. It will get you introuble with both the other users and the administration.

    Cheering someone who threw debris on a racetrack is exactly the same as saying you wish one of the drivers would crash. It's expressly forbidden by the rules. Pay attention to your actions and put some of that "very smart" to work.

    Geez, you've apologized enough...can you stop replying to your own replies?

    The rules say nothing about throwing a water bottle at another GTP member.

    Mosley summons teams using Michelin tyres
    To a hearing of FIA World Motor Sport Council



    Photo F1-Live.com
    The Indianapolis saga continues...

    The seven Formula One teams who failed to race in Sunday's US Grand Prix over fears their Michelin tyres might be dangerous have been summonsed to a meeting on June 29 by world governing body FIA.

    The FIA took the decision after the race descended into farce when the seven teams among them Williams, McLaren and Renault pulled into the pitlane after the warm-up lap leaving just six cars to race - Ferrari landing a 1- 2.

    While the French tyre maker have refused to accept the blame - instead accusing FIA and their president Max Mosley of refusing to compromise over the problem - Mosley issued a statement summonsing the seven teams to FIA's headquarters in Paris.

    "Following the events that took place at the United States Grand Prix the representatives of the seven teams using Michelin tyres have been summonsed for a meeting on June 29 in Paris," read the statement.

    Michelin have rejected any blame for advising seven Formula One teams to pull out of the US Grand Prix.

    lets just say i wouldnt be shocked if they tried to pull their championship ponts for the season. or something to do with ditching michelin here and now. either way it should be interesting.

    What if Michelin tyres would be permanentley ditched by the teams that were using
    their tyres next year? And Continental replaced Michelin? That would be a good
    twist :)

    Not saying that they will though

    I don't think that going through 20 pages is very fun on dial-up. :ouch: Luck, who cares they won the race and thats that.

    oh man I just read about this on the BBC news website about the teams being summoned to explain their actions in the US GP farce. I'm actually amazed that this is happening, and have to say that if I was a team manager I would also call in both my cars as there would be no way that I would put the lives of my drivers at risk, just to have more cars on the grid. The FIA are acting insane, and I can't believe they don't have any common sense in this matter.

    see thats my biggest problem with this entire issue, its like FIA thinks teams wanted a way out of racing or are just trying to stick it to them. there were SEVERE safety implications involved and theres no way id of sent my drivers out into the scramble that a gp is with unsafe equipment. how many people need to die before people realize everything isnt about protocol and rules. you'd think sane thinking would prevail once in awhile, then again this is f1.

    I am really tired of hearing the word farce. It seems like the word is the new "cool" word to use as I have seen it used about 500 times in the past two days.

    Heh. The 7 teams called into Paris. Their championship points stripped. Ferrari wins both championships! Hurrah.

    Haha

    Every paper in the UK prefers "F1asco".

    Oh, how I laughed.

    I want the "one set of tires per race" rule gone, but I´m with FIA on this one. It was Michelin´s fault. :tdown:

    Except that if Bridgestone didn't have the Indy 500 and a few practice sessions before to solve a similar issue they had, the first time they tried the new surface, not a single car could have run - Bridgestone included. But since it already happened to them and that they had the time to find a solution, it only affected the Michelins, who ran on the track for the first time last friday.

    And to ask certain cars to slow down during a race is a lot more ridiculous and dangerous than adding a chicane. This is a race, not a sunday drive.

    No it´s not. Can´t you remember the cars with Bridgestone´s tires at the start of this season? The tires couldn´t last until the end of the race, but they raced anyway, even if this meant doing slow laps.

    A chicane in the USGP would affect all the cars, not just the ones using Michelins. This wouldn´t be fair to the teams using Bridgestone´s tires.
