Rival F1 team Force India has blasted outgoing world champions Red Bull as the “cheats” of the sport.
“Red Bull gives you flexible wings,” team supremo and co-owner Vijay Mallya said on Twitter on Sunday. The former Indian billionaire’s attack on the energy drink-owned team follows not just the latest flexible wing saga, but also team boss Christian Horner supposedly enraging his counterparts in a recent meeting.
McLaren’s new front wing bears a striking resemblance to the one fitted to the 2014 Red Bull.
In the last race before the British team switches to Honda power, it was fitted to Kevin Magnussen’s MP4-29 during Friday practice in Abu Dhabi. The Danish driver said the new wing is a “very different philosophy” for McLaren.
Bernie Ecclestone has vowed to clamp down on the proliferation of internet journalists in F1
After controversially rubbishing the power of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter last week, the F1 supremo is now warning that online publications will find access to the paddock more difficult in the future.
Bernie Ecclestone has joined those who are heavily critical of Caterham’s plea for fans’ money to get the struggling team back on track.
As Marussia reaches the end of the line, fellow absent backmarker Caterham wants F1 fans to fund its Abu Dhabi comeback later this month.
Using the Twitter hashtag ‘RefuelCaterhamF1’, the team – under administration and reportedly in debt to the tune of $25 million – has launched a controversial crowd-funding appeal to raise the almost $4 million it says it needs to race at the 2014 finale.
