Ferrari are absolutely unbeatable at Grands prix that have longer laps.
Their energy limit-per-lap bypassing dual-battery system really shines on
longer laps where it makes so much more of a difference. On shorter laps of
course it's not such a big advantage.

Unfortunately since the FIA gave Ferrari carte-blanche to continue using the
system for this year there's nothing the other teams can do about it. You
may have noticed Hamilton checking out the back of Vettels steering wheel
while Vettel was being interviewed - then saying to Brundle they're hard to
catch while "they've got a few trick things going on in the car".

how is this allowed that the other teams have to take Ferraris word
(which isnt worth a shit) that they are not cheating?

If Ferrari team stood behind Kimi like they stand behind Vettel, the
Finn would have 20 points advantage on Hamilton by now.
