Så var det igång – diskussionen mellan teamen och Ferrari-gate:
Här är FIA:s brev från i fredags:
”FIA concludes analysis of Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 Power Unit
The FIA announces that, after thorough technical investigations, it has concluded its analysis of the operation of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 Power Unit and reached a settlement with the team. The specifics of the agreement will remain between the parties.
The FIA and Scuderia Ferrari have agreed to a number of technical commitments that will improve the monitoring of all Formula 1 Power Units for forthcoming championship seasons as well as assist the FIA in other regulatory duties in Formula 1 and in its research activities on carbon emissions and sustainable fuels.”

Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team Statement
We, the undersigned teams, were surprised and shocked by the FIA’s statement of Friday 28 February regarding the conclusion of its investigation into the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 Power Unit.
An international sporting regulator has the responsibility to act with the highest standards of governance, integrity and transparency.
After months of investigations that were undertaken by the FIA only following queries raised by other teams, we strongly object to the FIA reaching a confidential settlement agreement with Ferrari to conclude this matter.
Therefore, we hereby state publicly our shared commitment to pursue full and proper disclosure in this matter, to ensure that our sport treats all competitors fairly and equally. We do so on behalf of the fans, the participants and the stakeholders of Formula One.
In addition, we reserve our rights to seek legal redress, within the FIA’s due process and before the competent courts.

Samtliga ovan nämnda team har skickat ut samma pressmeddelande, där alla har skrivit under. Notera att varken Haas eller Alfa Romeo är med, de köper motorer från Ferrari och har inte heller varit med bland de team som kontaktats av Mercedes. Detta är en historia som lär fortsätta rulla framöver.
