SHANGHAI, China - Ferrari and Mercedes will be in the International Automobile Federation's spotlight in China on April 10 ahead of the 2015 Formula 1 GP weekend.

Wheels24 reported earlier that the federation had told the racing teams that the fuel-flow rules would come under closer scrutiny.

Fuel-flow rules had until now  (April 2015) been policed by a standard fuel-flow meter; now the federation wants to check pressure in other parts of the fuel system, too.


The thought is that some teams have found a way to increase fuel-flow in areas other than at the actual meter. The spotlight is shining most brightly on Mercedes and Ferrari, given the obvious upwards step-up each has made in 2015.

Spain's Marca sports daily reported: "The federation will use a new set of sensors to measure the fuel system in more detail."

Another Spanish newspaper, El Confidencial, added: "If anyone has managed to exploit a loophole, it will suffer the effects from China."
