2012 Ferrari and McLaren exhaust designs is legal

Published

on

Formula 1 governing body (FIA’s) technical head Charlie Whiting declared that, 2012 McLaren and Ferrari exhaust designs is legal. In 2012 Formula 1 implement a ban on blown diffuser exhausts and one of the rules relating to the ban states that the exhaust outlets must now be visible from on top of.

McLaren and Ferrari forced to change their interpretation, however, were in for discontent at Jerez, where a visiting Charlie Whiting confirmed, after inspection, that the FIA would deem the designs ‘legal’. The Sky Sports’ F1 pit lane reporter Ted Kravitz, FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting has given both teams the go-ahead.

“I understand from sources in the pit lane that FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting has told the teams that he considers Ferrari and McLaren exhaust designs as legal,” Kravitz told Sky Sports.

“Even though the way those two teams have packaged their exhaust outlets, with channels leading exhaust gases out to specific areas of the car and therefore appearing to have a beneficial aero effect, which is against new exhaust regulations, it seems Whiting believes that they comply sufficiently with both the letter and the intention of the law.

“This has been accepted by the other teams, who launched with less aggressive exhaust concepts and it means that they will now effectively green light their own, shall we say more exotic, exhaust designs. We can expect to see these in time for the third test in Barcelona, if not before.”
