Spyker takes legal action    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-17-2007 11:13

Just after qualifying, it is reported that Spyker lodged a protest against SAF1 with regards to the legality of their (SAF1) chassis, claiming that effectively, it is actually an RA106 in disguise. This protest was actually only against SAF1. Why only SAF1 and not Red Bull and Torro Rosso as well ? Maybe they thought that being supported by Honda, the FIA might chose to victimize them this year ? Just joking. Most probably its because SAF1 qualified within the top 10.

Anyway the stewarts sort of threw the protest out saying that the legality of the chassis is not under their jurisdiction. So now Spykder is going to take legal action against all 3 teams : SAF1, Torro Rosso, and Red Bull.

Apparently, Williams, Toyota, McLaren and Renault are going to support this legal action but Ferrari and Honda are keeping a neutral stance.

I wonder what will happen if tomorrow SAF1 scores their 1st points in F1....

Eccelstone apparently talked of a compromise where any points scored by these teams would not count towards the constructor's championship (which Spyker would agree to) but Aguri did not. Spyker is pissed because they're spending millions of dollars coming up with something new and Super Aguri has basically an old [proven] Honda chasis. I do agree that none of this would have mattered if Super Aguri was not as fast as they have been (i.e., faster than the factory Honda and in the top 10 with Sato).

In my opionion i think if they allow you to use an engine from someone else (BMW Sauber, Torro Rosso, Red Bull, etc. etc. etc.) you should be able to essentially buy an old chasis from someone else.
