Niki Lauda from Mercedes said that Ferrari has a lot of smoke every time the engine startes and that the FIA had to look at the issue.
Ferrari started using a new system for pre-season testing in 2018, and a particularly intense smoke is coming from behind the rear of the car.
The smoke from the rear of the Ferrari vehicle comes from engine ventilation. According to the 2018 rules, the stall from ventilation is not reusable. The Italian team is throwing this smoke out of the area where the red light on the back side is lit.
However, the first time the engine is running, the dense smoke comes out of the normal exhaust. Heavy smoke emerges when turbo is cold. During this time, turbo oil can pass, but when the turbo warms up, this situation is off.
Nami Lauda wanted the FIA to intervene, as it was alleged that the engine was about burning fat and that the Ferrari motor was burning too much.
Lauda said, "When they start the engine, we almost drown in our garage, and the FIA needs to look at it." said.
However, Formula 1 racing director Charlie Whiting said that despite intense smoke, Ferrari was not getting more fat than allowed.
Whiting is about smoke, "I'm sure they will solve this." said.
