Ross said “There’s no guarantee something we haven’t anticipated will occur. If it is going to occur, someone will likely spring it on Formula 1. I don’t think that will be the case. The regulations are pretty robust, but you can never say never.”

“That’s part of the reason why the governance has changed, and it has not changed in order to be able to change the rules at short notice. Teams know you can change the rules at short notice so they’re far more likely to want to be comfortable with their ideas before they release them.” He added.

Brawn feels that if the teams find a loophole in the new aerodynamic regulations, the voting system will be an extra layer of protection against their manipulation.

The previous rule gave the teams plenty of time to manipulate the rule before an agreement came into action.
