If the innovations they can come up with are within the rules there should not be any problem, the problem with such statements coming from a biased supporter/s stems from the fact that advantage is being taken from the FIA inefficiency/inconsistency and then when finally action is taken the wording used, firstly to cover their own ass and secondly not to disrupt the status qui. One example of such an innovation was when RBR had manipulated the engine management software to use both lunch control and traction control, a true contravention of the rules which qualifies as cheating. Technically speaking they did this by altering the software so that the relationship between torque delivery and throttle position was no longer linear. The FIA wording did not say it was cheating, it said they closed a hole in the rules, but the fact is lunch control and traction control are banned.
