Ferrari warns FIA bout new


Ferrari has warned F1’s governing body to be ready to pounce on cheating as the revolutionary V6 era begins in 2014.

Interestingly, Ferrari has been at the centre of one of the first technical controversies of the season.

Engine rivals Mercedes and Renault are unhappy that the Maranello marque entered 2014 without a safety shield to cover its new turbo unit in the event of a dangerous failure. Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport reports that Ferrari successfully argued to the FIA that its turbo is safe enough to be used without a heavy cover, but Mercedes and Renault continued to resist. So “Ferrari is apparently voluntarily designing a protective casing,” the magazine reported from Melbourne, “but there will be a few races delay before it is ready.”
