F1 Legal Battlegeorge
„When they appeal, they appeal,“ he said. „We`re going to fight him in the Court of Appeal and then in court.“ „We reached an agreement with Sauber and my driver`s contract with the team was terminated by mutual agreement. As an avid racing driver, I am sad and very disappointed. I was hoping to finally show what I am capable of doing in the 2015 season to drive a car for a respected midfield team. That dream has been taken away from me and I know that my future in Formula One is probably over. „I had a valid driver`s contract for the entire 2015 season and enforceable rights. I`m a racing driver and all I want is to race. However, the team boss insisted on not letting me drive, despite my legal rights to do so and a number of decisions and court orders in my favor and despite my racing skills. I will never understand that. I could have persevered, but the team boss had made the decision, contrary to my contract, that she would not work with me, and it was painfully evident in the paddock in Melbourne. @simon999 It`s very important.
„Reversing the decision“ would have meant that these 5 cars would have remained in place, but Merc can`t just claim that it would mean 100% that Hamilton won because there are too many variables involved for it to stand up to legal standards. @hotbottoms Yes, football referees can do just that and it would be legal for some reason. What`s more, referees can make mistakes when making quick decisions, and that`s also legal – competitors can simply „manage.“ There has been no trial of Mercedes to challenge Max Verstappen`s world title. But Red Bull Racing found itself in court last month. Just five days after the championship, the legal battle began with Dan Fallows, head of aerodynamics at Red Bull. I wonder how they will feel. Lando Norris could play a role on the soft tyres at the start. Perez, too. What a season we had. Hopefully we get the final we deserve.
I expect a tactical battle rather than a wheel-to-wheel battle at first, although that may come later. LAP 21/58Epic stuff at the front as race leader Sergio Perez fights hard to keep Lewis Hamilton frustrated Hamilton eventually passes and takes P1, but his advantage over Verstappen is reduced to two seconds „Checo is a legend,“ Max told team radio #AbuDhabiGP 🇦🇪 #F1 pic.twitter.com/Thc5IPQV09 Their efforts are described in his company`s counterclaim against Liberty Media and Formula 1, prepared by Cristalli. He said Piastri signed a deal with Alpine in November last year, paving the way for his racing debut in 2023. The agreement provided for the possibility of being loaned to another team for one year. The legal argument is likely to revolve around potential loopholes. Red Bull`s spokesman said they were „a racing team and did not have QC/legal representation“ at that hearing. Ready for battle 👀 #AbuDhabiGP 🇦🇪 #F1 @LewisHamilton pic.twitter.com/wJCyMHjvKE Well, I think if you open Pandora`s box. Then it should be right for all the races to be reviewed again this year. While Mercedes could prove to be a legal point in the last race, I can think of a dozen that RedBull can then fight. So the question is what the benefit is.
Overall, RB was often late and Mercedes was incredibly favored. So, raise it, I think. In fact, I think it will be good as it could lead to a detailed analysis of the FIA. An organization that is absolutely incapable of managing this sport. I think it at least unites this year`s teams and the public and there will be no disagreement. It must be repaired or they must resign as the governing body of this sport. They were totally unacceptable this year. But before the race takes place in Las Vegas, organizers may have to deal with the legal battle brewing involving a Miami tech entrepreneur with ties to the Strip against Formula One and the media and entertainment mega-company that owns it.
Amid the legal battle is the tax-funded Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and its politically connected advertising company. Palou is currently sixth in the battle for the 2022 IndyCar championship and is just 44 points behind leader and teammate Marcus Ericsson with five laps to go. However, Chip Ganassi has already filed a lawsuit, according to Spanish news agency EFE. This „legal expert“ says Mercedes has „no case“. Mercedes did not have a lap car and was therefore not affected by the instruction „all lap cars can overtake“ (19.12). Only competitors in the „lap cars“ can appeal the botched execution of this rule (maybe Mercedes can ask McLaren to protest; but I think it`s too late). Only 19.13 applies to Mercedes, and these rules have been applied in accordance with the way they are written, as they only determine the „clerk of the course to be decided“, without reference to any preconditions. He confirmed Motorsport.com yesterday that he would not comment on the contract battle, while McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown said the same. @simon999 agree 100%. The outcome of the championship should not be changed, but what happened should never be allowed again.
The only circumstance in which a race director is allowed to circumvent the rules is when safety requires it. Do not produce a fight between only 2 riders in the peloton. After notifying its intention to appeal, Mercedes must now decide whether to proceed or not. Horner said Red Bull was ready for any legal action its rivals might take. Behind the allure of Formula One`s return to Las Vegas, a high-stakes dispute is unfolding over who has the right to promote international racing. And the fight continues! Perez drives some sterling here to help his teammate. Netflix could make it a spin-off series: Better Call Brawn. Watch your favorite F1 executives, lawyers and spin doctors fight through a series of shady deals and slanderous TV commercials.
Some „legal experts“ have expressed their opinion that Mercedes has a case, and there is not much other than the FIA and/or Red Bull can offer in defence, but I would always be surprised if the result were changed. Go ahead. Go ahead! I have nothing to lose. Of course, I`m not going to be an idiot. I have to be reasonable. I`m not competing for victory. This is one of the biggest battles for the championship in many years. I`ve never been in that position where you drive them, but they`re fighting for the championship.
Ahead of the race in Las Vegas, organizers will face a legal battle between a Miami tech entrepreneur with ties to the Strip and Formula One and Liberty Media. The layout of the track has been changed this year and it seems to be for the better, according to the drivers. However, we don`t know if this will help to overtake or make it easier to track a car ahead. This track has traditionally been bad for the action on the track, but the proof of the pudding will be in the food, and the pudding will be served at 1pm today. So we could be facing an interesting strategic race, or maybe even another ding-dong fight on track, as we`ve had so many times this year. Or both. That would be nice, wouldn`t it? From a legal point of view, notice how people misrepresent national courts or CAS. This does not alter the fact that Mercedes, as an unplugged car, was not (directly) part of the incorrect/incomplete performance of Rule 39.12 and that, from a legal point of view, its assertion should be inadmissible. If the appeal also goes against Mercedes, there is the possibility of turning to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has hinted that he will fight them to the end.
