Six more F1 teams underweight?

BAR believe that six of its nine F1 team rivals also ran a potentially underweight car at Imola. A document released publicly by the banned Brackley squad revealed how team manager Ron Meadows had, in the event that BAR's fuel system was deemed illegal at the circuit, prepared multiple protests.

''We believed,'' Ron wrote in a court submission, ''that (their) fuel systems … were similar to ours … and would have … contained fuel after being weighed.''

He added, however, that no other car's fuel system – although near identical – was also checked by the FIA for illegality. Meadows' protests, though, never saw light of day as stewards deemed the 007 system legal — until the FIA appealed. GMMF1
