BAR ban correct says Ferrari boss
Jean Todt
Ferrari team boss Jean Todt says F1 officials were right to ban rivals BAR for breaking car weight rules.

"If you play, it all depends on the limit where you want to play and where you don't want to play," said Todt.

"They take a risk and you can get the cost of it, and that's what happened.

"Whether the punishment was enough or not enough, I'm not going to comment. All I will say is that Ferrari would never have got themselves into (that) situation."

Jenson Button and Takuma Sato were forced to sit out the race in Barcelona and will miss the Monaco next week before returning to the grid for the European Grand Prix at the end of May.

They were accused of running underweight at Imola, but have continued to protest their innocence since the ban was handed out by the FIA's International Court of Appeal last Thursday although team boss Nick Fry decided not to fight it.
