I read the mercedes AMG powertrains heads interview, and he is right in saying that an RRA on powertrains would be superfluous.
The restrictions on engines and development is so confined right down to materials and dimensions that it is a resource restriction in itself.
I think you are naive JET. The world is not black and white. One has to form a learned opinion about the statements of different sides in such disputes. And experience tells us that most times the differences are driven by the particular agendas of the teams. Seldomly one side is completely right and the other side is completely wrong.
So we better make an assessment based on reason and experience than believing in one side of the dispute. Both problems are real and need addressing. To think that restricted scope will contrain the engine cost race is silly IMO. It never has and never will unless you freeze development or define a control engine in the case of the new 2014 engine.
