Well, as much as I'd like to learn more, I consider it a matter of common sense not try and probe (particularly sensitive subjects) as it can sometimes lead to uncomfortable situations.
Anyway, regarding oil burning I do remember it was mentioned last year that they were discussing with FIA reducing the maximum capacity of the auxiliary oil tank. Apparently all teams agreed except Ferrari who raised a few eyebrows by insisting they needed an unreasonable volume (4 litres or so).
I am not sure if this was reported anywhere in the media.
Facts?.. there are no real facts about that. And i think everyone can see, from 2017 (more than 0,9l per gp till the end of the year for Mercs with a new PU before Monza, while Ferrari respected the gentleman agreement of the 0,9 from Monza) to 2019, who was more affected from the new oil regulation.
I think that everyone here can agree that oil burning was a key for qualy boost for Mercs and Ferrari, while Renault was in the first line against it.
am i right?
