Red Bull RB8’s illegal wheel hubs

In last two race weekends Red Bull Racing facing more trouble in their RB8 following FIA detect illegal components in 2012 Red Bull machine and instantly they are replaces this add-ons.

In Monaco Grand Prix Mark Webber crossing and to take the chequered flag, the result was significant in 2012 Formula 1, six different drivers winning the first six races for the first time in F1 record.

In Monaco GP paddock several teams revealed that Red Bull RB8’s floor hole was illegal and it’s located on the floor in front of the rear wheels.

Monaco Grand Prix stewards judge the car to be legal despite article 3.12.5 of F1’s technical rules, which states that “all parts lying on the reference and step planes must produce uniform, solid, hard continuous rigid, impervious surfaces under all circumstances.”

Following FIA clarifies regulation over holes; governing body declared Red Bull RB8 floor design is illegal to change the controversial design.

Red Bull’s wheel hub problem comes just two weeks after the reigning champion was at the centre of another technical controversy.

After the FIA clarification Milton based squad made modification to the design of its wheel core at the Canadian Grand Prix

Technical regulation: Under article 3.15 of the Formula 1 Technical Regulations, teams are told that “any specific part of the car influencing its aerodynamic performance” must be “rigidly secured to the entirely sprung part of the car” and must remain “immobile in relation to the sprung part of the car.”

Asked whether he found the FIA’s technical attention on the RB8 annoying or inspiring. Double world champion Sebastian Vettel reacted in his usual style.

Red Bull RB8’s illegal floor hole

“First of all, you have to understand that we have the hole because we were believing in a combination with all the other parts we have on the car and how the car looks it makes sense. Now it was declared illegal, then it was declared legal and now declared illegal again, so maybe next week it’s legal again. We have the parts in the garage! “

There’s no real extra motivation. I think we still have to make sure we get the best out of the car that we can. We see that this year is very tight so it’s up to us to make sure we use our package as well as we can and sometimes it might be good enough for the front row like here, sometimes maybe not good enough, but then we still have to make sure that we are very close.”

RB8 illegal add-ons restore will affect the champions’ upcoming performance or new changes will uphold further race.
