    Whiting: Vettel’s car complies with the regulations, there are no irregularities




    The FIA are supporting Sebastian Vettel amid recent claims he is strolling to the 2013 Formula 1 world championship title with a Red Bull car that may be transgressing the rules.

    Red Bull’s Helmut Marko has already dismissed the claims the RB9 is mimicking illegal traction control as “utter nonsense”.

    But former Formula 1 team owner Giancarlo Minardi had said he saw and heard evidence with his own eyes and ears recently in Singapore, when Vettel was putting down the power 50 metres earlier than his rivals, while the Renault engine emitted traction control-like tones.

    However, Formula 1 race director Charlie Whiting has told Sport Bild: “(FIA technical delegate) Jo Bauer has found no irregularities. Everything is under our control, and Vettel’s car complies with the regulations.”

    Hamilton on Vettel's Singapore pace: "The last time I could put down the power that quick was in 2007 when we had traction control!" #F1

    Another of Vettel's humor on TC.

    Formula One: Sebastian Vettel laughs off cheating allegations

    Asked about the allegation on Thursday, Vettel laughed and joked that even a forecast typhoon in southern Korea on race day will not be able to stop him winning because "since we have traction control, it doesn't matter so much."

    Word is it does have something to do with KERS, and Vettel has reportedly said in an interview that there is a special ECU mapping, but that it is completely legal.

    But should KERS be used to absorb excess torque on acceleration, that still runs counter to rules on engine torque output.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Reminds me of an engine exhaust brake. Brilliant nga if they control slip thru KERS or the exhaust system tampering with excess torque.
