The BAR people had a secret gas tank in the car. It allowed them to be under weight requirement.

And so they are banned for two races...

But also FIA is taking more action as we speak. They don't like BAR's reaction and have planned to ask for a bigger punishment!
That's kind of stupid... FIA punishes a team that knows it's done something wrong... the team accepts because they know that they were wrong... and the FIA is not happy with that?

That's like a cop giving Dirk a €180 ticket for speeding but raises it to 300 when Dirk accepts. Bad example... giving Dirk a bigger ticket is always justified... but you get the idea...

But BAR now said they aren't changing the fueltank next GP they are in... ...I wonder what will happen?

BAR was betreated by one of their teammate, for money of course. There is some mistique about this punishment.....
