Ferrari changes plans to avoid rule breach

Ferrari had to quickly change direction this week for fear of kicking off the 2022 campaign with a rule breach. Reportedly, Ferrari understood that because the cars are so starkly different for the all-new 2022 rules, the FIA would green-light the use of a year-old test car. However, when test driver Robert Shwartzman did not drive out of the Fiorano garage on time, it was because the team was suddenly unclear that use of the 2021 car was allowed. “Until we receive an update from the FIA on the details of test cars, we will be using a SF71H from 2018,” a spokesman for the Maranello based team said.
