This is quite vague, but it is the latest I can find on Ferrari engine issue.
It states clearly enough that Ferrari feels it was their responsibility to understand the system. It's not the the type of oversight I would expect from them in this millennia!
"It is similarly being reported that Ferrari thinks the fuel pressure problem that stranded Kimi Raikkonen down the Melbourne grid last Saturday is also related to the McLaren ECU.
"This kind of thing can happen when you are working with one procedure that you do not know so well. Now we know that there is a conflict we can make sure it does not happen again," a team spokesman told GP Week.Those who believe in telekinetics raise my hand.

Well, back to the thread title.
Ferrari suffered engine problems probably brought on by the excessive heat and nothing to do with the ECU.

I know , a little sketchy , but it was something like that .
Anyway , could that be a reference to McLaren mounting it in some way the others haven't tried -i.e.-spacing it up 2 or 3 mm from the mounting surface ?"No pen , no pen ." -what Sato said to me .

hmmmmmmm, let me see, I'm sure there are very likely still wheel speed sensors, numerous brake sensors, an electronically operated transmission, ..... thinking out loud.......a pit speed limiter button....... I'm sure there is at least one accelerometer in the car somewhere......... still just thinking out loud...... most early tc utilized brakes, not engine retardation......... pushing multiple buttons....... driver "inadvertently" hitting pit speed limiter coming off of corner...... rumours of ghosts........ hmmmmmmmm.HINCHTOWN!!

Ferrari certainly have their hands full. Multiple engine failures in P1 alone. Ouch. They better get to learning the ins and outs of the ECU fast, if that's really the problem.J
