It's true though, because the meaning of the word itself implies it comes with a consequence. The funny thing about it is very simple; if no one catches you out on it, it doesn't become part of the record, and by extent this means they never have cheated.gold333 wrote: ↑Thu Jan 28, 2021 10:40 pmI love this. This person (an obvious Schumacher fan) has argued and argued that Schumachers car in 1994 couldn't have been cheating. Then he finally relents and comes out with his true character. Quote: "Simple.

Like Mercedes has done, like Ferrari has done and like many other teams have done and probably doing! No scope for what people FEELS.
FIA has never managed to catch extremely intelligent hacks. They are good for catching obvious ones or side with the ones who holds the power.
This is what I mean. The depths hero worship can cause people to sink to.
Doesn't mean they didn't break any rules though. Literally anything could have been illegal, but as long as they weren't caught doing it, it never becomes cheating.
Look at it this way; When you run a red light you run the risk of getting a ticket, but at the same time you also have a chance of not getting a ticket. If you don't get the ticket, per official records you never actually ran the red light, even though you did run the red light.
