Formula One News » F1 2013 – Red Bull using banned traction control? Posted on 18/06/2013
A report from the Italian Autosprint magazine claims that the Red Bull of Mark Webber showed signs at the Canadian Grand Prix that are consistent with the use of traction control – which is banned in Formula 1.
After looking at a picture of Mark Webber accelerating out of a corner after a collision with the Caterham of Giedo Van Der Garde Autosprint report that the markings left by the accelerating red bull of Mark Webber could be consistent with traction control.
“You immediately notice the traces on the track, those are not continuous (usually darker at the beginning and then gradually faded) of a ‘screech.’”
“It is the typical behaviour of a road car that goes ‘jerky’ with the traction control switched on,” reports Autosprint.
