Then ---VET for removing his steering wheel expressly against
regulations (what *WAS* that about ?).
Consensus is that Ferrari have a trick clutch release that they'd
like to keep secret.
Has there been any more on that? It was so clear he was taking the
wheel deliberately that he drew attention to it - surely there should
be some kind of official action?
I don't read a lot of F1 sites or subscribe to F1 'news' email lists as
others here do and so haven't heard anything further. However I think the
action speaks for itself - he must have taken the wheel to hide something as
the rules state that he needed to re-fit it before leaving the car. He
actually did re-fit it then reconsidered a few seconds later and walked back
from the Sauber to retrieve it and then dropped it on Pascals lap before
sitting on the side-pod.
I hope that the FIA are enforcing their rules consistently. There should be
a few points on his superlicence for those two infringements. After all it's
not like he needed to walk anywhere - the medical car was right behind the
Sauber and I'm sure it would have given him a lift. He had just been in an
'accident' after all.
