Anyway, looks like Red Bull have been playing around with their engine mapping, if the above note from FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer is to be believed. And it is - Bauer's job is to be right about such things.
So by fiddling around with their engine mappings - something I thought the standardised ECU was supposed to prevent, but whatever - Red Bull appear to have gained an aerodynamic advantage that Bauer thought it worth pointing out to the stewards for consideration.
There's still a lot more to come from this story, and a lot of questions to be asked:
- are Red Bull guilty as charged?
- how long have they been doing it if they are guilty?
- what sort of penalties will they face?
But if this is a long-term thing that the FIA have only just picked up, the worst case scenario for the team is an exclusion from the constructors' championship, as happened to McLaren in 2007.
The report - which you can read by clicking on the photo above to see in full-size - implies we're looking at a one-off offense.
