    I do not believe that Binotto is stupid and if he accepted such a sanction, it may be that he only inherited the stuation, but also that he received the commitment that this thing could be legal, in one form or another, by 2022.
    It could also be the hidden reason why competitors demanded to know about the deal.
    I fear that the Fia was not completely sealed and that in addition to the time that had elapsed, the others could have worked on this subject (there was a meeting with people from Mercedes, on the subject of SF engine without SF be invited)
    But it could be that Ferrari still hopes to recover an advantage
    The more i think about that the less i believe it. Just stupid

    Bloody moles!!! They are everywhere.
    Wished we had some moles leaking info from Mercedes or Red Bull if they violated the rules.
    Wishful thinking, I know

    Did it come to fruition? for whatever the reason, no.

    Basically, that's all there is to it, anything more is pure sensationalism.

    Reflexion about what would be the new car :
    It seems that is now impossible to seal the side of the floor with vortex. So, it should be the end of rake
    As result, it become important to control ground clearence, meaning suspensions work and lowering the CG location will be more important than before
    Lower tyres degradation will help for pushing on track, also because more fuel would be inboard at the race starts (no more fear to destroy tires when running a full tank and then, more power to use)
    No more to have to bend tyres to heat them (good thing)
    The chanels location aren't on the center of the car, so it would be dificult to not have understeer, even with near zero wing at the rear end : find load on the front of the car would be a solution to balance it, but how? Possible new aero system? Balance the car without lost floor load or adding drag would be the challenge?
    Like it was not enought complicated, the rear wing could help working the diffuser, but there is less need of it's load with floor chanels and again it has to be balanced at the front end
    Am i right?
    Any idea?
