so a driver goes off throttle, instead of retarding ignition, the clutch is depressed, the gas stays down, you bounce on the limiter, but exhaust gases still flow.
just a thought. feel free to tear into it.
You tore into it yourself!

..or the clutch.
As precedent shows, if a moveable part serves to effect the aerodynamics of the vehicle (unless specifically excluded - ie. DRS), it can be banned.
Yep, anything and everything.
The question that really needs to be answered is, if scrutineers & the FIA have deemed it legal for so long over 2 seasons, should it be right to be able to ban it so suddenly? Again, precedent tends to say yes. Unfortunately.
