'Crashgate' is over! FIA have agreed to stop their appeal against the appeal Briatore/Symonds won to have their bans overturned and instead Briatore and Symonds have 'expressed their regrets and presented their apologies to the FIA.' They have both agreed to stay away from any F1 roles until 31 December 2012.

Story here!
Not sure what to make of this, I think the ban was good and showed a distinct punishment if you cheat and pose serious dangers to the race marshalls, other drivers and fans deliberately in F1.

I think they deserve a permanent ban, rather than the FIA being subject to media pressure.

I think it's more to do with the FIA not actually being able to ban Briatore & Symonds, since neither own FIA licenses. I seem to remember seeing something like that crop up as the main reason for the appeal - basically Max banned Flav when he had no authority to.

^ Yup

However, those bans were overturned earlier this year after a French court decided the WMSC did not have the authority to impose them for procedural reasons and because neither Briatore nor Symonds were FIA licence holders, and therefore not subject to FIA rules.
Jean Todt has proposed structural reform so there are no other misunderstandings like this in the future.

This is why I dislike Montoya:

OK, the cameraman should have been looking where he was going but still, thats a complete overreaction from Montoya. ****. (Excuse my profanities)
Meh, he was the most entertaining driver in F1 for a long time, and gave Schumacher a run for his money in terms of arrogance and confidence.

No other driver since has been that good at being a ****, but being really quite likeable and entertaining.

As I've said on the video, he was so good at being a **** that you couldn't help but like him. The guy was just pure entertainment in what's such a corporate sport

Still probably more horsepower than the Hispania car has though :P
Haha! I can't wait for the reliability issues to hit an all time low and see the HRT engineers out on the track pushing the car round!
