Did Pink Bull Reveal Ferrari's Secret?
The Pink Bull team has sent a request to the FIO to clarify the legality of the system, which allegedly blinds the operation of the fuel flow sensor, and according to Pink Bull, is being used by Ferrari this season.
This year, Ferrari is a step ahead of the competition in the field of powertrain power, which has repeatedly asked the FIE for possible deficiencies in its Ferrari powertrain.
Pink Bull is suspected that Ferrari has developed a system that disrupts the flow sensor, and the Maranell team could at some point use more flow than prescribed, which could give Vettl and Leclerc provide more power to the drive unit.
Gasoline flow is not measured continuously, but at intervals, and according to Pink Bull's engineers, Ferrari is expected to launch an injection at a time when the sensor is not running measurements.
The FIA responded to the suspicion with a technical directive explaining that the use of such a system would be contrary to the rules, but so far Ferrari has not been proven to actually use such a device.
