Kaltenborn discussion on the suspension does harm to the image of Formula 1
Moniz, Kaltenborn laughs No, as far as I know, the suspension we did not change.
Question So, in fact, you will still suspension
Moniz, Kaltenborn I didn't say that laughs
Moniz, Kaltenborn I don't know. As I just said, we did not change anything. Everything was fine until then, we're all right now. But if someone is going to protest, let served.
Question But if you become aware that any of the commands uses some system that you deem illegal, Sauber will file an objection
Moniz, Kaltenborn I Wonder how can I know, legal systems that use other commands, or not Our team has no possibilities to conduct an inspection, except that I'm from someone else to get information about what use rivals.
In my opinion, the FIA did everything right. The Federation has sent a technical Directive, it is in power, and now each one to decide how to act. As I understand it, the FIA has tried to achieve consensus on this issue, but of course, it turned out that it is impossible. Now each team must determine its suspension meets the regulations or not, to take risks, or not.
Question do you think your team is at risk in this weekend
Moniz, Kaltenborn I'm not going to go to any risk. There is no such need, because we all legally.
Question have you Received from Charlie Whiting any concrete explanation concerning the suspension Sauber after was sent to the technical Directive
Moniz, Kaltenborn No, because we got such explanations before this.
Question In the technical Directive States that the legality of all systems FRIC in question.
Moniz, Kaltenborn All right.
Question do You think, your suspension may be questions in this weekend
Moniz, Kaltenborn Look, I don't know.
Moniz, Kaltenborn 't judge it. We can only guess. It is very difficult to estimate, how much this or that team will play or lose. I believe that such assessments need to be very cautious.
Moniz, Kaltenborn No, my comments are not evasive I'm not saying that we are going to file a protest. From my point of view, all of this discussion does not benefit Formula 1, and that worries me a lot more. We understand that this is a highly complex systems, and we know it by experience of own developments. And it is not clear why suddenly they find themselves outside the law But again we walk away from the main, because exactly because of these systems, no one will win the championship and will not lose. But the team again become involved in the discussion, which is not interesting to most fans. They have one question why we just can't bring order to the rules and regulations
If in the middle of the season, it appears that we are doing something wrong, it puts us all not in the best light, you see It turns out that the sport is not able to achieve clarity.
Question Maybe it's the fault of the FIA
Moniz, Kaltenborn Federation is responsible for the formulation of rules, monitors, but this is not the fault of the FIA, if commands create some system - the Federation can not influence.
Question This is a pendant that allowed Sauber increase the speed of the machine
Moniz, Kaltenborn I Think, Yes, like all the other teams, but it is not a secret that our system was probably not the best. Therefore, if we lose, it will not have a noticeable effect.
Moniz, Kaltenborn exactly, and that is what I'm talking about. But this is not the first such case, you can remember the double diffuser or exhaust system, peered with diffusers, and so on. In all cases these systems were outlawed in the following season, though they were effective, and all they were used. It's really a waste of money, then if it turns out that they are illegal.
Question Can you tell us about the progress of Simone de Silvestro
Moniz, Kaltenborn Its preparation is going on for the first time she sat behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car in the Fiorano and it coped with the task. Recently it has been tested in Valencia and showed very good speed, traveling 1200 km, which means that its serious physical training.
In addition, she never flew off the track, there were no serious accidents, so now she has the necessary experience, so we applied to the FIA to receive temporary Superlicense. Next we need to check how Simon cope with the machine this year, and then it will be fully prepared. Our plans associated with it will consist of several stages, so we'll see how it goes.
