Red Bull's Helmut Marko says the team is simply "more creative" than its rivals...

That's what he said and I agree. Redbull is bending the rules but so far they have not done anything illegal.

I also tried to make a poll for this but maybe next morning...

I agree with him. Every single other team would do the same, if they had knowledge of the various loopholes Red Bull found.

However, he is highly hypocritical: I remember Horner and co. getting their knickers in a twist crying foul play over the DDRS.

Not just to criticize but rather for practical reasons: maybe we should make just one Helmut Marko thread instead of making a new thread every time he opens his mouth :D

When a car infringes the technical regs, it isn't bending the rules, it is flat out breaking them.

The headline of linked article is also little creative in interjecting juice into what later is revealed actually different context. Jealousy in paddock exists because we are non-traditional successful team (and others are not). Well, he did not have to say that, or article did not have to be written, other teams will take probably offense at that, but summer break is long...
I am not sure if regulatory inquiries are necessarily based on jealousy only. It is a competitive sport, and it would be unacceptable if teams have not done their due diligence and hold everyone to rules of the game. It’s quite rational behavior, well thought out, because if you p***s FiA off with baseless whining over frivolous claims, you might have your name in headlines with penalty attached.
