The FIA Stewards have ruled on the question of Red Bull’s ECU data after meeting with the team and its engine supplier Renault.
“While the stewards do not accept all the arguments of the team, they however conclude that as the regulation is written, the map presented does not breach the text of Artcile 5.5.3 of the Formula One Technical Regulations, and therefore decide to take no further action.”
Thus it would seem, reading between the lines, that the rules need tightening to allow for breaches in spirit as well as in text.
No doubt that will happen, but one has to say that this must be seen as a victory for Red Bull. The problem is that unless a rule change comes quickly, everyone will soon be doing the same thing.
