news from Italy.
According to Leo Turrini, and many others, there was a whristleblower in Ferrari giving tech spec to an other team. Then the team gave those infos (under patent..) to the FIA per the protest: if Ferrari would have been claimed guilty, Ferrari could have taken legal action and win just because those infos (under patent) were given to a competitor violating the patent rules and not to the FIA itself.
So the agreement is aimed at protecting Ferrari patents and possible damages to the FIA, for violation of the patents themselves (Ferrari can act legally against FIA, the whristleblower, the team which have contacts with the whristleblower)
2007 McLaren anyone?
Lol, Leo depends on his Ferrari sources, and this time he's had to play along to help out. This story makes me think of Max Mosley being caught with 5 prostitutes being completely ridiculous, and his story was 'somebody' set him up
, hoping that mysteriously that made it less actually him! There's no whistleblower, the other teams just had enough clues and data
And Ferrari have to help FIA with their procedures and whatnot, as a penalty, that nails it as getting caught being naughty. Clever, but naughty.
So now, have Ferrari made a weak engine, suddenly? i don't think so. That idea is part of the story, like they're suffering terribly and natural justice is being done even if FIA are 99% letting them off. The whole thing happened from being clever, that hasn't gone away has it, and if we get Oz they'll be right there i'm betting
