other than being made to run extra weight to bring the bodyshells up to the minimum weight I don't remember ford being penalised for the lightweight shells.
If holden had done the same everyone here would be calling for them to be banned, or saying "why don't ford put superchargers on their cars". I am getting sick of all the non constructive crap that gets posted as little more than a whinge, and I am sure plenty of others are as well. If you look at the rules, HRT/HRO/Whomever are good at exploiting loopholes to get what they want, if there were not loopholes to allow it then they wouldn't get away with take the latest murphy testing scandal as an example, they found a loophole that allowed them to test, and they exploited it, now the loophole is going to be closed to stop them doing it again. Team brock is now in the hands of kees weel, for all the difference, it makes, which will equal exactly 0, the holden ownership of HRT was done against the rules yes, but who wants to see Ford win with the best team taken out of the equation anyway, I sure as hell don't, I want to see them fight with the best in the business, and come out on top, give holden enough time and they will setup the team with al alternate owner, but the difference that makes will also equal exactly 0, it's not going to suddenly mean they will have less resources, or loose sponsorship. They will continue on their merry way being the best team in the business.
I don't remember if anything happened to DJR or not about the undertray extension, so i can't really comment on this issue.
