Ferrari doubts there was a fuel discrepancy at Yas Marina

Ferrari is claiming it made no mistake in it's calculation of fuel in car 16 and is insistent that their calculation was correct.FIA's Bauer summed up they added 4.88 kilos more and fined the outfit 50k euros.

Been looking at it for years...tho comment there only sporadically as their not as F1 'hip' as on here. It sometimes has the full story where the same one is faded out on Auto....t and the other one.

Y'know I was curious about this too -- I haven't heard/seen anything more about the outcome either. Thanks for the tip about Yahoo.

It was just "one" of the "so called" innovations ...And the Ferrari Jet-Mode as well !

The Merc tyre cooling innovation was pretty awesome too

Yes it's down to what you feel is relevant and makes sense but this is F1! Myself I would say it's easy to say oh that team is up to it again. But why would they do it knowingly and the governing body is not immune to mistakes themselves and lets face it if they make an error themselves then seing human fallibility if they can they would try to cover it up.
