I deleted the civilian water injection as irrelevant, and of questionable accuracy. --squadfifteen, 17/10/05
The 'Boycott & Water Injection' part was almost completely inaccurate. What was described is (as is correctly stated) what happened with the Tyrrells in 1984. The Brazil 1982 controversy was actually over water cooled brakes. Sources are an article from AtlasF1 that I can't find now (called 'The Seaosn of Seasons or something like that by Don Capps) and Nigel Roebuck's book Chasing the Title. --Max, 4/11/05 126.96.36.199 20:44, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Secondly, those teams who had backed out of the 1982 San Marino boycott were harshly (though perhaps deservedly) dealt with. The Tyrrell team was the last team to obtain a turbocharged engine contract (de rigeur for Formula One from 1983 onward), finally signing a deal to run "customer" Renault turbos in the latter part of 1985 (roughly three years before turbo engines were ultimately banned).
I find this statement strange. As I've understood it, Tyrrell got permission from the other FOCA teams to race at Imola (they had a new Italian sponsor, wich was important for a team with economic problems). For me, it seems that economics and not some kind of punishment led to Tyrrell's problems with finding turbo engines. J-C V 09:08, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
The next project for this article is likely that it sorely needs references as it was a complicated issue.
There is a book on the history of Ferrari from circa 1983 that could make for a good reference - I believe it was called "Great Marques - Ferrari".
There's also another book in my local library about F1 that is from 1981/82 but I don't think it gets into the FISA/FOCA war.

[This site] lists many of the references you guys seem to be talking about. I'll take a look at my own local library too, but that should be a start. Also, I'm going to look into renaming the article "FISA-FOCA conflict" or something like that, as this certainly doesn't deserve to be up there with WW2 or the French and Indian War in search results. If that happens, I'll certainly go around and make the proper re-links as well. Duncan1800 (talk) 15:12, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
