This year lotus renault braking system seems to be approuved by FIA only to be banned after ferrari came up with the same design, on the other hand Newey which is view as a genius is only getting by with is gray area solution. The fact are that regulation are written with words and you can play with the words to make something legal or banned depending on your inclination to favor or not certain team.
Ferrari will have a hard time every time they go into the gray area, and will have to plat catch up to the solution of the fresh team of the moment.
Right now most Newey gray area work gets banned, but a year late...

I really hate what the ineptness of the FIA has done to F1. I remember all those great innovations of the past which were allowed to race. Nowadays, if anyone comes up with something new, the FIA first say it's OK, then realise they've screwed up and ban it. All the time banging on about budget limits. The only thing to get past them in recent years is the flexi wing, but only because the FIA don't know how it was done and couldn't come up with a test to check for it.

My question for the FIA is, do you actually know what you want and how to achieve it? Because it sure doesn't look like it.

The FIA and its rules.
Subject, the exhaust outlet pipe position as per the FIA rules.
Barely a week before the start of the new season with its new set of rules Charlie whiting said, the rules are intended to limit designer's ability to exploit exhaust gasses for aerodynamic effect, however it is quite likely this area of regulation may need to be revisited again in 2013.

As someone else said on another thread, the exhaust gas issue is an easy one to solve, if they really wanted to. Just determine that all the exhaust gases have to exit round pipes beyond the end of the diffuser.

The fact that they are tinkering doesn't bode well and I reiterate by post above.
