Seems like Red Bull's issues with the fuel flow sensor and officials are ongoing.

 

I was wondering why they don't integrate the output over the race distance and compare the result to the actual total fuel used. This would provide some level of confirmation of the accuracy of the FFS. Comments?

A man with one watch knows exactly what the time is.

 

I guess if you are issued witha device by the FIA and after the race it is found to be adrift by your integration check, how do the responsibilities of the various actors compare? Also how does it compensate for temperature etc?

I guess I was thinking of the integral check as ammunition to be used only when a dispute arises.
