Illegal is a grand note. All of us know their engine broke the foundations but when Ferrari found a loophole and a gripping method to handbook clear of detection that is allotment of the game too.
We will by no plan know within the event that they deliberately and knowingly went beyond the foundations. We’re assuming that worst case came about and perhaps it did. Nevertheless perhaps Ferrari belief their loophole excuse would make a choice up. Presumably they belief they found a gripping trick that no one else had found. The engine wasn’t blatantly rule-breaking or the FIA would have caught it straight away. There’ll deserve to have been some style of grey discipline.
Of us are being too harsh IMO. Each group use heaps of time and money to search out ways to skirt the foundations. And that is where we can survey the neatest engineering, which is allotment of what makes F1 attention-grabbing.
