The 2019 Ferrari-gate issue is far from over, following further speculation springing out as the FIA released a cryptic update. A thorough investigation conducted by the Federation led to the conclusion that Ferrari will use a new engine in 2020, implying that the results of the engine data analysis spotted illegal elements.

Both parties agreed not to share more details of the deals, which inevitably gave rise to further speculation from teams and media.
German outlet Auto Bild understands that Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff sent a letter to all non-Ferrari-powered F1 teams to jointly take action against the private agreement that the FIA signed with Ferrari.

The intention is clear: coerce the FIA to disclose all the unrevealed details discussed with Ferrari, with the aggravating factor of being accused of weak management.
All teams except for Ferrari, Haas and Alfa Romeo should sign the letter in order to put more pressure on the FIA’s shoulders.

It is clear that millions of dollars are at stake in this case, starting with a potential disqualification for Ferrari, which has supposedly raced with an illegal power unit.
As a result, all teams behind the Maranello-based outfit would move up in the constructors’ championship and would consequently receive more prize money. For instance, Ferrari’s disqualification would translate into a $ 12 million-transaction for Red Bull, hence the intent of brushing up the matter and digging down deeper into it.
