Well guys, according to Mika Salo (FIA) declarations the punishment that Ferrari-powered teams had to face last year after the controversy surrounding the 2019 Ferrari engine was to limit the gasoline consumption of Ferrari engines below the consumption limit of their competitors, this penalty would end this year. For that reason we can look forward to the performance of Ferrari and its client teams this year.

Sorry if this is out of what should be posted in the SF21 speculation sub, im new
Now, that’s some interesting insight. That would shed a totally different light on this matter. It would mean that Ferrari’s power disadvantage was not only down to their actual PU performance/potential.
I don’t believe a word of it. The article was based around 1 small comment he made which has probably been misinterpreted
For a start the FIA made it very clear they were unable to prove Ferrari did anything wrong
If they could, I very much doubt they would punish Ferrari in this way as it was bad for 2020 season competition as a whole, bad for the sport
Any why would Mika Salo know when Ferrari did everything they could to keep it quiet
If Ferraris poor performance was down to fia sanctions punishing them they would have said so publicly to save face
And finally why would their customers be punished? They didn’t design the engine. We’re not even sure what Ferrari did was present on their customer team cars
