McLaren need to clear about engine mapping rules

Published

on

McLaren F1 team managing director Jonathan Neale says that they need clear about what’s permitted and what isn’t in engine mapping.

Neale also added that now difficult job for FIA rewriting of engine mapping regulations in mid-season. McLaren still expecting Red Bull’s illegal engine mapping controversy will fix soon.

The Champions Red Bull racing was reported to the stewards in the build-up to the German Grand Prix for alleged violate of torque in engine mapping regulations.

Red Bull cleared to race on last grand prix race day following the stewards found that “the map presented does not breach the text of Art 5.5.3 of the Formula 1 Technical Regulations and therefore decided to take no action,” but the matter is far from resolved.

“I think we’ve all worked really hard for the first six months this year to work with the FIA and Charlie Whiting to get clear about what’s permitted and what isn’t,” Neale explained during a McLaren phone-in.

“The FIA and Charlie have a difficult job there. I hope we don’t get involved in rewriting regulations in the mid-season, as we did at Silverstone last year, because that created a reasonable amount of upset.

“However entertaining it was for the media, in terms of the sport consistency in regulations is good. I think there should be more effort put in enforcing the regulations rather than continually rewriting them.”

“It’s really not for us to know. It’s very hard to tell exactly what their engine is doing and how much advantage they get from it on their car as part of an integrated performance package. I know we’re not the only ones on the grid who are looking into this very carefully,” he added.
