Spirit, shremit.
You're too young but 40 years ago it was ADMIRABLE to come up with something innovative (as long as it adhered to the rules), and those teams WON races (WOW, what a concept), until someone else came along with something that worked better and then THEIR cars were faster.
There was no "spirit" of the rules, it was non existent, innovation was encouraged
This is so much BS now, it's absurd. You're smart, you win, plain and simple and it didn't always take cubic money to acheive this.

So now doing something that breaks the spirit of the regs is 'innovative"? LOL. They knew the diffuser design was at least questionable back in the winter. Instead of using th ediffuser as a diffuser, they're using the bodywork as the diffuser. That's not innovation, that's finding loopholes, and warrants MUCH less praise, methinks. Now, the mass-dampener system Renault innovated several years back, THAT was innovation.

NO, YOU'RE WRONG. THIS IS WHAT RACING IS ALL ABOUT, INDIVIDUAL INTERPRETATION OF THE RULES AND AS LONG AS THEY'RE NOT BROKEN, IT'S OK, ALWAYS WAS, ALWAYS HAS BEEN, (UNTIL RECENTLY).

The reason "spirit" of rules are now discussed, is that regs have gotten exponentially more complicated, all the while being less and less effective at acheiving the desired results because these cars are so much more complicated, and the possibilities of what can be done are vastly increased over the old-dog days of F1.

WRONG AGAIN


It is still admirable to come up with something innovative, these diffusers are not, though.

THEY MOST CERTAINLY ARE

If the rules outlaw "holes" in the diffusers, and 3 teams utilize "gaps" in their diffusers, you call that innovation? Really?
