By Spengo Go To PostWhat’s the expected life span of the hypersofts? An entire race?It's Monaco, so not a lot of tire wear and if the reds will last a couple of GPs ;) Bit surprised some teams did not even bring one extra harder compound to test race pace (tire pressure), but then again even if you get it wrong and pace sucks, no overtaking in the streets of Monaco.
And something that is still hanging in a cloud of gossip and rumours and something I would normally laugh of (like this weekends Mercedes/Pirelli tire conspiracies), but has picked up pace and it has now been reported on by reliable F1 sources, Ferrari has allegedly been at it.
Rumours out of the paddock suggest they have been using their ERS system (battery) above the normal KWs (resulting in extra HPs). If found out to be true that would be terrible for the sport, as we are not talking about grey areas, but blatantly cheating and therefore a illegal car. So lets hope it will stay at just one of those paddock rumours that turn out to be nothing.
