exactly... what happened is that a design team of engineers took a ruler, a pencil, and jotted some straight lines "because there were new regulations" in regards to that specific area of the car.

IMO those guys dropped the ball, for the lack of a better way to say it. We're not talking about a single incident here, it's THREE teams that picked up on it.

EVERY time the change the rules to slow them down, great engineers overcome it. that is what engineers do, that is what we sell to people, that ingenuity...
remember when we went from V10s to V8, anyone? well the cars eventually turned faster again, so then they limited the revs to 19, then 18... etc etc...

Ferrari, Flavio, stop whining, and get racing.
