The FIA has confirmed it’s going to tackle the copying issue and make certain F1 stays a championship for constructors, even supposing it will halt using photography along with other reverse engineering methods.
Abiteboul expects the International Court of Appeal provides additional clarity on the topic.
“That which we’re seeking since the beginning of this process, it is not a legal consequence, it is not a degradation of the association between team or teams flaws from the paddock,” he explained.
“It has some replies to some circumstance, to some precedent that’s been put, a disturbance that’s been introduced into the game, and that is what we’re after. We do not believe we’ve got a very clear resolution to this as of yet.

“We appreciate the principles aren’t clear, and that is what we’re looking for in the procedure.”
