    Default Aero Loophole for Ferrari?

    To control costs, wind tunnel time is strictly limited.

    Can Ferrari benefit from Haas Team's unlimited (because they are not yet a team) use of the Maranello wind tunnel?

    "inverse CFD teraflop restriction" - I had that once and it was really uncomfortable. Stopped eating spicy foods for a few weeks and it got better.

    Everything in F1 is unfair, especially when it comes to the team in red getting more money than anyone else because they are who they are. So was Ferrari gaming the wind tunnel restrictions? Probably. But F1 as a business wants a competitive Ferrari and an American team, so Charlie probably said I believe you weren't doing it and don't do it any more.

    Very funny.

    And very true. There is only one Big Red, and they are perched high on the totem pole.

    "Last year, Ferrari was reported to have earned $US164 million ($A213 million) and Red Bull $US156 million, while Marussia and Sauber each received only $US48 million."(see below):
