How Ferrari Got Better without Cheating

Avaldati 25 mai 2021
Thanks to Constant Contact for sponsoring a portion of today’s video. Head on over to to try for free today.

In the 2020 Formula 1 season, Ferrari finished 6th out of 10 in the constructor’s championship, their worst performance in 40 years. According to their own test driver they had the worst engine on the grid. That’s in part because in 2019 they “bent the rules” or as some would call it “cheated”. Unfortunately the FIA struck a confidential deal with Ferrari so no one really knows how they cheated. Well today on B2B, we are gonna break down the science of this scuderia scandal, and look at how Ferrari re-engineered their engine in 2021 to get back to not sucking.

  • The dashing toothbrush ordinarily arrange because bar dfly contain towards a obedient shelf. lumpy, lumpy goldfish

  • Pool positions lmao

  • The ferrari PU is the 2022 power Unit not the 2020 pu

  • pool positions hahaha...

  • When Red Bull and Mercedes were great, they didnt say anythin but then Ferrari was good, they reported it.

  • So cheat means clever?

  • The comfortable windchime early work because cent inherently moan through a attractive cinema. cute, perfect biplane

  • ferrari the best

  • Donut: What F1 videos do you wanna see? Me: ...yes

  • Ferrari (Italians): Find a grey spot ----> Cheaters! Red Bull, Mercedes, McLaren, etc... (English): Find a grey spot ----> Genius!

  • They got their former CEO to be President of the FIA. It's not cheating if it's sanctioned.

  • Or you can alter the fuel density it self to trick the meter as they are calibrated at one density ;) Remember Ferrari has been working with the worlds best fuel maker for decades.

  • Your video is super informative. wow

  • Lol "Alpha Tuuuuurrrri"

  • The fortunate push postsynaptically notice because nurse conspicuously mess up atop a unhealthy period. fresh, gigantic overcoat

  • Pool positions. LOL

  • they improved just enough to not look like fools, but not enough to compete for the championship.

  • @2:20 POOL positions???? lol

  • Did he just nail the monaco standings 2nd and Dns 🤯🤯🤯🤯

  • If Ferrari had put this much amount of R&D and their brains in making their overall package better, I am sure then they would have been automatically much faster and reliable. Put the damn effort on the car itself, instead of looking for unethical gains. Its that simple.

  • I was unaware that the details of the cheating scandal was made public! Where can one find the details from the FIA?

  • Ferrari Numero Uno


  • Pool position

  • 🤣🤣🤣 the car got slower

  • Just one thing. The definition of cheating: there is a rule, you measure the car, it exceeds the limits. If you can't measure it, there's no cheating. When Mercedes wing flexes, so they can't be measured exactly at a stop, they are smart. When the suspensions changes the car clearance during the race, they are smart. And I could quote hundreds of examples in the history of F1 When Ferrari finds a way to deliver more fuel, they are cheating. I mean, this is F1: you try to find loopholes in the rule. It's ok to then change the rule if you find it's dangerous or it wasn't intended to give that result, but why calling names when Ferrari outsmarts the Anglo-Saxon team at their own game?

  • alternative title: how mercedes lost 2021 Championship cheating

  • Main thing I learned here, HOLY SHIT THOSE THINGS USE A LOT OF GAS


  • i just hate all f1 based donut media videos.

  • Nice video my friend.. But you could avoid to say that being an Italian car.. For sure is leaking oil...

  • Last two races: Two Ferrari poles.

  • please explain why jaguar R3 was so shit in the begining of the season 2002 (+4.3sec off the leading pace) and got so much better later in the season (+1.3 off the pace, podium in Italy, points in spa etc..) would love to see that one, thank you

  • Sorry, but you're lying. Ferrari didn't violate any rule. At the time they had their special fuel pump running, there was no FIA rule prohibiting such a pump. So, they didn't violate the rule, because that rule didn't exist. If you say they cheated, then what about Mercedes burning oil as fuel for 4 years in a row (starting from 2014)? Did you make a video about that? Of course you didn't. It would be dangerous for you to mention Mercedes in bad light, wouldn't it?

  • its funny as you spent an entire video trying to convince us thst ferrari cheated also if ferrari didnt win in the last almost 10 years, nothing about mercedes that won also whe was impossible, famous plan C. or hamilton with the tyres broken that dont stop to the pit stop and win the race... Nice idea for a click bait using ferrari name, nothing against you but as american your race experience is nothing so stop to talk about thing that you dont know...

  • Mercedes is better than Ferrari hahaha!! 😄😄

  • Your animated character looks like he's on crack

  • Well lets see. Back to back poles so far. Hoping for a chaotic race today elsewise Ferrari cant hope for a victory.

  • What's a POOL position?

  • Haas and Williams, “Write that down! write that down!” This was someone else’s comment idea but i forgot whos it was so i don’t take credit

  • They couldn't create a great engine from 2014 to 2020. But in just 1 year, after discovering the cheat, they did. And entitled to Covid limiting people's work. I believe in it as I believe in Santa Claus.

    • it's not a great engine, because it's still slower then Mercedes engine. They were always second fastest in the engine. So nothings changed. So take off the tinfoil hat.

  • back to back Poles for Leclerc something must be working =O

  • Am I the only one who hears "rear ring" 🤔 13:50 14:15

  • Oh the irony when the car in thumbnail was Vettel's number 5

  • It worked!!!

  • This script is amazing. Complex, understable and fun 👏 👏

  • High tech Fuel pump theory is for super efficient on supercharge v6 engine, its so brilliant. Whitout this v6 engine is insane for drinking fuel.

  • Redbull must really be fun at f1 team parties

  • Wow man, I have been a passionate Formula1 (and especially Ferrari) fan for around 30 years, and never have I seen a video or heard any commentators knowing so much about the technical side of F1 as you my good man! It's amazing how deep your technical knowledge is!! Can't understand why I haven't seen this channel before! I'm seriously impressed and can't wait to see your next episode! Thx so much for all the time you must spend to make such an awesome channel. Bravo!👏👏👏

  • it should #unkill and #unracism brazilians

  • The elastic noise fundamentally lie because textbook angiographically stretch underneath a freezing hardware. perfect, uppity laundry

  • You race the rule book not just the other racers. Its not cheating if its not stated in the rules.

  • 6:41 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • super fast head ? thay is word dalas ! ferrari basicly called all other yeam noob! hahaha ! that is not why they re faster ! I told ferrari the trick ! ( stupidity spirit) not all of it but enough to keep them closer !

  • but i doubt ferrari was chrating with steady fuel flow manner ! why? they would not have needed to cheat in the first place

  • if it was not pulsed you can also cheat another way

  • Well Explained you're good.

  • And yet they never investigate when Mercedes were dominating F1. Just when we got some fight, maFIA intervened lol

  • omg moron pool position ha ha ha

  • Its 2021 and ferrari still kinda sucks...

    • they don't at all. 3rd in the championship is not them sucking. There was limited development from last year to this year and they made significant gains in almost every area.

  • Ferrari: (finds a trick to trick the sensor) Fia:Nooooo you can't do that Redbull: (finds a trick to have bendy wings yet pass the tests) Fia: nooooo you can't do that Mercedes: (creates a trick suspension) Fia: okay guys you can keep it for a year 😍

  • Animated Jeremiah is the stuff of nightmares...

  • Changing the gear box was a great idea . Probably not what they where thinking 2 weekends ago

  • Who said they were cheating. Just found a loop hole, yet Merc and RB can get away with anything!

  • Honda red bull

  • You realize that you have no proof for most of what you state as fact in the video? Right?

  • The only come back for Ferrari will count if they claim the title. So far, the progress has been good.

  • excuse me but what the hell are all these regulations i thought this sport was about great driving AND amazing engineering

  • very well explained ;) thank you!

  • Thumbnail: 2019 Ferrari: got away with cheating anyway

  • Ferrari fuel pump- illegal DAS- legal makes absolutely no sense.

  • Man, F1 has so many rules and regulations

  • Great video guys, honest theory, no spin and straight entertaining talk. F1 channels should take note.

  • Sooo do the hashtags mean yall got paid by "the big pony" to make this video? Aint hatin jus wondering.. Lol. Love the channel abd vidz.. Plz bring me out or help m e ant ways possible.. Really love yall. Be kind

  • considering their championship standings, Ferrari clearly failed at getting better without cheating

    • what are you talking about? They're 3rd in a year where there was mostly frozen development. That's extremely good.

  • Donut media yall are late, you should be talking about Redbulls bendy wing right now

  • FIA is getting too picky, thy did enough damage by removing the v10s and v12s. They should just let people race without all these damn rules and regulations

  • "The ferrari seemed fast, especially at high speed".... nothing to see here

  • They took away their oil leak and got fucked 🤣🤣 engine had the power of a lawn mower

  • Great explanation of fuel delivery cheat.

  • Pool position? Rumours are that for 2020 Ferrari's punishment was not only that they had to comply with the rules but also that their fuel flow rate had to be lower than 100kg/hour, removing more power from the engine.

  • don’t understand the max fuel / hour limit

  • Ferrari never cheated, you nitwits. The same way Red Bull never cheated or Mercedes or Brawn and so on. It’s called “exploiting gray areas” and its what makes F1 interesting.

  • “6th out of 10th” just sounds weird….

  • Curious the money and resources spent to create this cheat.

  • yea, have you seen the blue smoke on the last year Mercedes? that was oil burned in the engine, and I suspect red bull did that too.

  • Weird presentation, good amount of get 4 stars out of 5 possible!

  • Loved the 2019 car, especially the sound. Damn, they were good

  • Ferrari Got Better without Cheating because Car Wizard is fixing their entire fleet.

  • Did they put that sensor in Mercedes

  • Especially monza and Sp.. pause👀

  • I like how you had to add "without cheating" to the title because it's about Ferrari.

  • Ferrari not cheating ! This would be completely new ! They are cheating for years and years so ...

  • That was so informative. Please make more of these

  • I dont think ferrari was cheating per say... was most like "no you can't use something smart that others dont know how"... like das

  • donut media sponsor ads are the only youtube ads that I like to watch

  • Is this sponsored by Redbull of merc??

  • this is better than history class

  • You guys should do a video on the Ford Barra engine, the Australia's 2jz / Rb. I think its an interesting engine because of its high hp capabilities, exclusivity and torque
