How Ferrari Got Better without Cheating

Thanks to Constant Contact for sponsoring a portion of today’s video. Head on over to to try for free today.

In the 2020 Formula 1 season, Ferrari finished 6th out of 10 in the constructor’s championship, their worst performance in 40 years. According to their own test driver they had the worst engine on the grid. That’s in part because in 2019 they “bent the rules” or as some would call it “cheated”. Unfortunately the FIA struck a confidential deal with Ferrari so no one really knows how they cheated. Well today on B2B, we are gonna break down the science of this scuderia scandal, and look at how Ferrari re-engineered their engine in 2021 to get back to not sucking.

    If Ferrari had put this much amount of R&D and their brains in making their overall package better, I am sure then they would have been automatically much faster and reliable. Put the damn effort on the car itself, instead of looking for unethical gains. Its that simple.

    Just one thing. The definition of cheating: there is a rule, you measure the car, it exceeds the limits. If you can't measure it, there's no cheating. When Mercedes wing flexes, so they can't be measured exactly at a stop, they are smart. When the suspensions changes the car clearance during the race, they are smart. And I could quote hundreds of examples in the history of F1 When Ferrari finds a way to deliver more fuel, they are cheating. I mean, this is F1: you try to find loopholes in the rule. It's ok to then change the rule if you find it's dangerous or it wasn't intended to give that result, but why calling names when Ferrari outsmarts the Anglo-Saxon team at their own game?

    Sorry, but you're lying. Ferrari didn't violate any rule. At the time they had their special fuel pump running, there was no FIA rule prohibiting such a pump. So, they didn't violate the rule, because that rule didn't exist. If you say they cheated, then what about Mercedes burning oil as fuel for 4 years in a row (starting from 2014)? Did you make a video about that? Of course you didn't. It would be dangerous for you to mention Mercedes in bad light, wouldn't it?

Nice idea for a click bait using ferrari name, nothing against you but as american your race experience is nothing so stop to talk about thing that you dont know...
