Racing official slams ‘stupid’ F1 penalty system


A Russian motor racing official has hit out at “stupid” penalties that are affecting drivers at today’s grands prix.

The spate of penalties up and down pitlane hit an embarrassing zenith at Monza last weekend, as drivers ran out of their allocation of four engines for the season and teams reacted tactically.

Igor Ermilin, a leading official of the Russian grand prix and a presidential advisor, said of the penalty system: “I have no civil words to say about it.

“It is artificial and completely against the interest of the sport. And that’s the nicest way I can put it. It is the most stupid thing I think the FIA could ever do.

“I also resent the absurd requirement of a certain number of engines that can be used during the season. It is beyond common sense,” Ermilin told the Russian news agency Izvestia. (GMM)

    Absolutely correct.

    That has nothing to do with the way F1 has been and is not true to racing.
    It should be endurance driven, it should be racing to the limit first.
