But the rules for 2020 specifed that brake ducts myst be designed by the team, anf by definition racing poiht didnt do this.Raleigh wrote: ↑Fri Aug 07, 2020 4:43 pmPhotography + legal transfer of CAD files for listed components, that was always the understanding. Take all the known reference points from listed components and F1 technical regulations, then fill in the blanks from photography.
Racing Point freely informed the FIA about having used Mercedes CAD files when designing the brake drums, as to their understanding the transfer in 2019 was completely legal. IMO fault lies with the FIA for not being sufficiently clear over how the change from listed to non-listed components was to be handled, especially when it turns out Racing Point was correct about being allowed to use the front brake drums but not allowed to use the rear drums over a technicality.
So they leapfrogged in development by using 3D scans and photos or whatever.
It lacks a certain integrity...
