The FIA ignores its own rules
When questioned on the subject Max Mosley said that the World Council had decided not to invoke Article 123. The implication is that the governing body only abides by its own rules when it wants to do so - which cannot be in the best interests of the sport.
Another question which the World Council failed to address was whether or not there would be any public sanction against the stewards at Jerez, who had dismissed the Schumacher-Villeneuve incident, which was clearly a dereliction of their duty.
