    Yes,The other Teams' Protest was too "severely".:D

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    After the FirstTest Cycle one Thing "seems" rather clear.....Ferrari has not the fastest Car.....
    But their Focus on Testing was maybe more on the "Setup" Side.

    The Last Day for Testing:

    rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-2.jpg


    The FIA took apart and analyzed the Ferrari engine from last season.
    A statement indirectly confirms that there were irregularities.

    Shortly before the end of the winter test drives for the Formula 1 season, a short but all the more shocking email from the FIA fluttered into the mailbox. "FIA completes analysis of Ferrari Power Unit," says the subject.
    Formula 1 test drives, Ferrari: bad pace just bluff?

    The content has it all. "After thorough technical investigations, the FIA has finished its analysis of how the Ferrari Power Unit works and has agreed on a comparison with the team," the statement said. And further: "The details of this agreement remain between the parties."

    It is common for the FIA to confiscate engines after the season and check their legality. The drive units are too complex to be fully examined on the race weekend. That is why they are sealed and scrutinized after the season.

    Again and again there were votes in 2019 that Ferrari would cheat on the engine. For this reason, the rules were tightened towards the end of the season, after which Ferrari suffered losses in performance - which, however, were attributed to other causes by Ferrari itself.

    There was another incident in Abu Dhabi when Ferrari made a - possibly willful - mistake in the specified amount of gasoline. The case was settled with a fine of 50,000 euros because Ferrari had already been warned before the race and afterwards nothing was to blame in the race itself.

    The surprising FIA statement is now wind of criticism. Between the lines it can be clearly read that there were irregularities in the Ferrari engine. The fact that there are apparently no sporting consequences raises questions.

    Apart from the agreements between FIA and Ferrari, there are also consequences for everyone: "The FIA and Ferrari have agreed on a number of technical obligations that will improve the monitoring of all power units in Formula 1 for the upcoming championships."

    Ferrari is also said to help the FIA with other regulatory processes in Formula 1 and also with its development work on CO2 emissions and sustainable fuels.

    The Tests are over,the Season 2020 is Season 2020 is about to Start.:)


    How about a couple of Prophecies again ?
    (this Year I'm leaning very far out the Window...):D

    - Ferrari (Vettel) will not win any Championship Title again.
    - Teamduel Vettel - LeClerc will escalate again - but this Time really bad.....

    - Mercedes wins both Championships again

    - Red Bull (Verstappen) wins a couple of Races but more then 3rd Place in the Driver´s Championship is not possible.

    - McLaren will be the "closest" Chaser and get some Podium Places.

    - Vettel will retire after 2020




    Your "Prophecies" please ? :)

    I would like it if McLaren were best of the rest and pushing the top 3 but I'm worried the pink team are going to get in and spoil things.

    Vettel... I think if he can retain his Ferrari seat, he'll continue to drive for them. He may need to take a pay cut. However I have a feeling that next year's cars would suit him his style a lot better than the current vehicles.

    Maybe I forget to mention.:sad:

    On the Test Days there were 5-6 bigger Engine "issues" on the Mercedes powered Teams.
    Mercedes itself surely will have no Problem to get rid of it,they have the Resources.

    But I think the "Customer" Teams will not have the Possibilities to achieve the same...
    (Pink Team "maybe" with the Money from Stroll...)

    Same for the Ferrari powered Team...
    Very hard to believe they had "developing" issues last Years second Half....
    ..according to the,in the meantime confirmed, "irregularities" to the Ferrari Engine 2019.

    And the Pink Team seems to be a very good Copy of the Mercedes,by the Way.:D

    This weekend’s season-opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne has been cancelled. The news follows McLaren’s withdrawal from the race on Thursday, after one of their team members tested positive for the coronavirus.

    A statement issued jointly by F1, governing body the FIA and the Australian Grand Prix Corporation read: "Following the confirmation that a member of the McLaren Racing Team has tested positive for COVID-19 and the team’s decision to withdraw from the Australian Grand Prix, Formula 1 and the FIA convened a meeting of the other nine team principals on Thursday evening. Those discussions concluded with a majority view of the teams that the race should not go ahead.

    "Formula 1 and the FIA, with the full support of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) have therefore taken the decision that all Formula 1 activity for the Australian Grand Prix are cancelled.

    "We appreciate this is very disappointing news for the thousands of fans due to attend the race and all ticket holders will receive a full refund and a further announcement will be communicated in due course.

    "All parties took into consideration the huge efforts of the AGPC, Motorsport Australia, staff and volunteers to stage the opening round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship in Melbourne, however concluded that the safety of all members of the Formula 1 family and the wider community, as well as the fairness of the competition take priority."
