That seems like a risky way to go about their business.
well I dunno...
last season they had four maps and after the first four races they had to choose one and stay with it... I *think* they decided that they could claim that they expected this season to be the same, four maps / four races / choose one. It seems that their understanding of the rule versus the way Ferrari looked at it (same map as last year) were slightly "different".
