Verstappen stirs up Ferrari over engine comments

Verstappen stirs up Ferrari over engine comments”

As is the custom, the correspondence with Red Bull has been issued in the form of a Technical Directive, so that all the teams are aware of the FIA opinion.

The FIA issued a technical directive clarifying a section of the rules about a potentially illegal fuel-flow after questions from Red Bull in the lead-up to the race.

"Seb could have scored the pole, he was maybe a bit too cautious in one corner, Charles had problems in morning, lost all P3 and (had) a downgrade of engine in the vehicle".

"I think it's a joke to be completely honest", added Leclerc, when asked about Verstappen's comments. So I don't see where the problem is.

"If we look at the race today, we may comment later on, but certainly the speed on the straights was not our issue, while we've got clear problems on the grip on the vehicle first stint both drivers", Binotto said. "I feel the comments are completely wrong and it is not good for the sport and everybody should be a bit more cautious".

"I read and I heard a lot of comments this weekend about a technical directive and the impact on our cars", Binotto said.

Teams who have suspicions about what a rival is doing typically write to the FIA asking if a theoretical system is legal, in order to trigger a clarification.

Meanwhile, Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto expressed his disappointment with the remarks made against his team.

"I think everyone knows that Ferrari used a loophole". I feel truly humbled, and really, really grateful to everyone back at the factories, the entire Daimler family and everyone at PETRONAS - everyone who has worked so hard to enable us to do what we do and achieve this.

If Ferrari's rivals had been convinced the Italian team was cheating as Verstappen suggested, they could have launched a protest rather than seek clarification from the FIA. Ferrari drivers did however still top all the speed trap tables.

"We just had a discussion about the data from the race and the speed trace [of the Ferrari] looks totally different to the last few races", he said. "He doesn't know anything about us".

"The power unit is an incredibly complex piece of machinery", said Christian Horner, "both from a hardware and software perspective".

"I think it was clear that something didn't work", said the German of Ferrari's pace. It's always good to get clarity before wasting effort. Drag is another major factor influencing the straight-line speed of an F1 auto and the Ferrari has less drag than its rivals, making it quicker on the straights.

Binotto pointed out that Ferrari had matched Mercedes in the corners and said that this was because they were running more downforce, which would affect their speed on the straights.

"I think we've taken a good step forward and we're back in the fight". "The trade-off between grip-limited and power-limited has been moved this weekend as a test on our side". Will it have impact in the race or qualifying?
