A few months ago, the FIA made a statement about the Ferrari scandal in 2019 – a violation of technical regulations. That statement contains the following part:

"The FIA and Scuderia Ferrari have agreed to a number of technical commitments that will improve the monitoring of all Formula 1 power units for forthcoming championship seasons as well as assist the FIA in other regulatory duties in Formula 1 and in its research activities on carbon emissions and sustainable fuels."

The FIA and the team came to a private agreement, which has now become the foundation of new technical rules and clarifications in the championship's sports regulations.

Technical directive 0018/20 concerns the updating of the IVT sensor, which measures the electrical power distribution of energy recovered by ERS systems. The updated sensors will be installed on Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull cars as the top three constructors of the 2019 championship, and then on other teams'.

Another technical directive – 0019/20 is aimed at ensuring compliance with the newly introduced oil consumption limit of 0.3 l/100 km. It describes new measurement and sealing procedures that the FIA can implement if desired, including the physical measurement of the amount of oil supplied to the engine.

Based on the fact that Ferrari actually took a direct part in the adoption of the new directives, it follows that the Italian team will not have problems with their implementation.
