Again, there was no official complaint and neither did FIA went looking for Mercedes, that doesn't doesn't mean they did not circumvent rules. See, nobody saw, doesn't mean it wasn't wrong.Just_a_fan wrote: ↑Tue Jun 09, 2020 5:52 pmThe fact that something is lie does not require proof from a third party. If a statement is a lie, then it's lie. Just like you're speeding if you exceed the speed limit even though no one sees you doing it.GPR-A wrote: ↑Tue Jun 09, 2020 4:35 pmHow is it lying if there is no way to prove it? It's lying only because some want to believe it that way. No one had to believe them if they could have been proven wrong. Because FIA couldn't prove them wrong, Benetton's statement can't be argued.
It's like Mercedes burning oil all along in their PU, while nobody could prove it, but everyone believes it to be true.
And Mercedes never denied oil burning so that'll be a straw man you're building.
So don't just talk what suits you. Oil burning wasn't covered in the regulations as it was a loop hole and that is why FIA didn't go after them. But that was cheating, as some called it. You can find hundred reasons to support Mercedes, just like you find hundred to blame others. The story from the other side will always be the same.
