In the round-up: The FIA doesn’t have any concerns yet about the unusual amount of smoke the new Ferrari has produced in testing.
What they’re saying
The plumes of smoke appearing from the rear of the Ferraris attracted a lot of comment during pre-season testing. However FIA race director Charlie Whiting doesn’t believe it’s a cause for concern. Here’s what he said in an interview RaceFans was present at yesterday:
We see it quite often, we saw it a lot with the Toro Rosso last year. We think that’s just oil getting into the turbo through the seals. It’s not doing it on the track.
