Ferrari Documents Allegations

"Facts" seems to be a word used alot in the analysis of the current situation.

So far the only facts that I can determine, having read all of the accusations and counter accusations, are that:-

- The Ferrari organisation seems to leak confidential information in a rather embarrasing way - with many teams apparently on the receiving end - so far we know of Toyota, Honda and McLaren all mentioned.

- That the McLaren car was originally built and tested PRIOR to these documents being leaked.

- That the advantage of the Ferrari over the Mclaren over the course of the season, depending on the conditions, has been stable.

- That most of the championships points advantage accrued by McLaren over Ferrari this season to date is the result of the McLaren having a reliability edge over the Ferrari.

It will be interesting to see this go on. Of course the silent party to all of this so far, who potentially has ALOT to lose is Mercedes-Benz.

I also note that people have short memories. Remember pre-season when all the talk was about the radical new longer bodied Ferrari? And how this was going to give them some competitive aero advantage? Indeed it was quick in testing! Has something changed and the Ferrari and McLaren are now suddenly the same car underneath? There seems to be alot of intent to IMPLY that - but little evidence!
