I thought this was the fundamental algorithm model that drove the activities of major social media companies.

Come to think of it, when was the last time Twitter or Facebook paid a meaningful tax. Maybe they could teach the F1 teams a trick or two.

Maybe they already have it…”

Looking ahead, I really see only one feasible option: finding a way to verify accounts in real time.”

1. Like they did for the Ferrari engine breach in 2019 minus the secret deal. For example, reduce their cap next year by doubling or tripling the violation amount and slowly reduce it over two or more seasons.
2. Remove the points from the previous year’s points by doubling the cap over percentage percentage in both leagues without adjusting anyone else’s prize money.
3. Have them refund the prize money if 2 above cause them to lose a position on the year-end leaderboard.

My opinion, the FIA ​​will do nothing meaningful to set the stage for failure. “

Financial penalty? Teams that can raise funds from sponsors will simply pay the fine as a cost of doing business and the “cost cap” becomes meaningless. The “haves” will always spend more than the “have-nots” and the playing field will be steeper than ever.

Disqualification/removal of points? Although more “fair” I suppose, since these are actual teeth on the settlement, when applied so late it just smacks of manipulation, just as much (if less immediate) as Masi’s decision to ” racing” for the final lap in Abu Dhabi. Even if they only apply it to races after they exceed the cost cap.

At this point I think the only thing the FIA ​​can realistically/fairly do is amend RBR and AM (assuming they are guilty). But then they need to put in place ways to track team spending more or less in real time, and immediately apply penalties that have teeth. In a few weeks, that’s probably immediate enough. And the penalties should be along the lines of disqualification from the previous race and banning all remaining races of the season. If it’s only in the final race that they exceed the cap, and it’s by a sufficiently small amount, then only a fine could be claimed.”

I think you have to differentiate between exceptional facts suddenly discovered *previously unknown* and *routine checks*.
Yes, if we suddenly find out that the crash was deliberate (or that Lance cheated), which we couldn’t have known before, that’s bad, but there will be an understandable reaction. And it is exceptional.

Problem here, we’re not talking about exceptions, this is a *routine* financial check based on timely information. Same as driver weigh-in, scrutineering or penalty review.
If someone tells you that Hamilton’s crash against Verstappen (any of 2021) will be investigated within a year of the end of the Championship, you’d be laughing. This is clearly unacceptable.

I understand that regular financial audits *usually* take years. But reviewing my highway speeding can also take months. The sport is different and needs to apply faster procedures.
Now the FIA ​​has only two good options:
1. agree that the financial offense is penalized only financially. That means a rich team can overspend, it’s just more expensive, and the only problem is that the FIA ​​forgot to tell MB last year.
2. deduct points, but then deliver a “quick check” procedure to find out the result just after crossing the finish line of the last race. Always possible, create the FIA ​​​​bank and all transactions are done only through accounts in this bank with full online transparency.

Results? For those years, officially, there is no winner of the Tour! It was too much of a hassle to go back and start disqualifying all the other cheaters and then smash some more… It would have been a nightmare on their part. So “There was no winner. Lance is removed from the history books, and all other rankings are maintained.

Terrible result for the sport.

So in F1 – Michael and Daemon Hill; Senna and Prost; ice/gravel in the cars to pass the scrutineers; Toyota air intakes on WRC cars; Software traction control… the 2019 Ferrari engine… At some point, you have to call a statute of limitations and confirm that a result is valid, *regardless* of future findings.

James Hunt recovering his victory three months later is the most delayed result I can think of now, there could have been more time. But, say, isn’t a two-week appeal window enough?

If the FIA ​​reverses last year’s result, when in the season will it apply it? Let’s say a team was in the cost cap until the last four races… ok. Change the results of the last four races? Let the results stand and deduct the season’s points total? Deduct points earned after exceeding cost cap? Then, and Toto scores a point, what do you do with the starting point advantage for this season?

Anything other than financial penalties for financial crime will lead to chaos. The FIA ​​did not think about it. As the old saying goes; just because you can measure and try to control something doesn’t mean you should…”
