Just a day after the presentation of the F14-T and there is news both Mercedes and Renault are raising objections to the way Ferrari has chosen to interpret the 2014 regulations.
At the heart of the matter is article 5.18.5 of the 2014 F1 Technical regulations which states :
5.18.5 Measures must be taken to ensure that in the event of failure of the turbine wheel any resulting significant debris is contained within the car.

|Renault and Ferrari have the MGU-H in the "V"|
Of course, one wonders, how did Renault and Mercedes know how Ferrari was packaging the F14-T before it was even presented?

the FIA has issued clarifications on both Lotus' fork nose and Ferrari's turbo. Both are legal. Ferrari's argument was that the particular construction of the turbo they use meets the regulation's requirements.
