I can almost guarantee that they will yet again be one step ahead of the testers. It's a complicated thing to test and RB seems to be streets ahead of anyone else in fabricating carbon fiber that moves how and when they want it to.

Someone wrote an article (using NASCAR as an example) of the difference between pushing the envelope and cheating. Pushing the envelope is exploiting gray areas or unregulated areas. Cheating is breaking clearly written rules and hoping to get away with it. Red Bull is cheating. And they're forcing everyone else to cheat as well, since that's the only way to keep up with them.

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
