We'll see what the effect of this is, but something has gone on.
that article was from the start of 2017, its got nothing to do with Mick Schumacher.
yes it from 2017, it says means were installed FIA to prevent cheating, and teams were caught by surprise.
It says 2018 it should be more hard to cheat, but it cleary is an indication that teams tried to bend the rules. maybe to allocate more potent engines or use certain maps for their drivers.
But maybe still something is possible.
Also in the article it says the governing body "may use" and "has the right to" do whatever necessary, but maybe those rules arent't enforeced or were changed...
I didn't go to the FIA regs page to see if the are really instated from 2018.
Finishing races is important, but racing is more important. ...

How did you derive from that article that cheating is going on? It doesn't mention any cheating at all.

people think it is possible and done and the regs change is to show that it is unfounded.
It appears to be a bid to stave off any allegations that certain competitors receive favoured treatment from main engine manufacturers Mercedes and Volkswagen.

I didn't interpret favoured treatment to mean cheating, that's all.

Mick seems like a smart young man, reportedly people even offered him an F1 drive but he felt it was too early, i wish him the best.

I don´t know how good he can be but its clear that its a very focused and hard working guy. I am sure his father has teached him well. 1-2 years in F2 will be good for him and a good indicator of his quality. Obviously I would love to see him in F1 in 2020 but he has do to what is best for him.
