Lotus's legendary designer Colin Chapman once said: Rules are there to be interpreted by the wise men, and to be followed by fools.
Formula 1 has always been about finding the loopholes in the regulations, the grey zones, and if you cheat, is to make it so smart, that you cannot be discovered.
Ferrari has most likely been out in the last variant, after the summer break, when they began to win races, and no one is rivals be able to understand how the red racers were able to reach significantly higher top speeds than all other.
On the long sides, they were suddenly rockets compared with the Mercedes and Red Bull.
the Theory - which, after Ekstra information is quite likely - is that the two Ferrari racers have been equipped with a clever system that circumvented the rules for how much fuel it should run to the motor a given time.
the supply of Fuel at a maximum of 100 kg/h. is not a constant measurement. However, it takes place in intervals. Ferrari would have fooled the meter with a system that increased brændstofstilførslen, when that was NOT measured, while it was lowered to the allowable, when it was measured.
Which gave them a performance advantage.
Red Bull-Honda got wind of it and went to the international motorsportsforbund, the FIA, with a query as to whether such a system was legal.
For then they would do it.
It caused a technical directive to the teams in the UNITED states, which states that it will be illegal.

Ferrari has, of course, denied to the impure trot. But suddenly scored Valtteri Botttas the first Mercedes-poleposition since before the summer break, and Ferrari drivers won't any longer so much time to the Mercedes and Red Bull on the long sides.
Both Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen was in the USA out with the suppositories directed against the Italian pride.
- What is happening this week, will be exciting. I think they have lost a little power. It will be interesting to see how it continues, and where it shows up in the race, said the now six fold world champion after qualifying.
Sunday was Sebastian Vettel a terrible start and was dropped, while Charles Leclerc was four without being in the vicinity of to be able to challenge Mercedes or Max Verstappen. Well to mark with a previous generation Ferrari engine installed after the problems in the third training.

the Dutchman did not again after the race, when he television was asked whether it was strange that Ferrari could not fight with in the beginning.
- Oh, it is not strange, he said.
Why, said the follow-up questions.
- What do you think? You can even figure it out.
