Ferrari, Alonso hit out again at ‘one-way’ penalties, F1 testing ban

Ferrari has renewed its verbal assault on the rule-makers of F1, arguing in the wake of last weekend’s British Grand Prix that race stewards are arbitrary and ‘always penalise in one direction’, with double world champion Fernando Alonso adding that the current in-season testing ban stifles creativity and leaves designers and engineers with their ‘hands tied’.

The Spaniard received a drive-through penalty at Silverstone for overtaking Renault rival Robert Kubica on the grass at Club corner and then neglecting to give the place back again as per the letter of the regulations, and the timing of his punishment – coming just as the safety car appeared to clear up the debris from Pedro de la Rosa’s damaged rear wing – meant the Oviedo native fell virtually to the back of the order, from where he could recover to only 14th at the chequered flag.
