I stand by it: you are bashing Todt because you don't like him. You can't really point out anything in his comments that hasn't been echoed by others. Then you said you dislike him because he doesn't name McLaren - when he does in these recent comment. (Yet, you say nothing about Chevrier who indeed did not name McLaren only called them "one team".)
And now you are suggesting Domenicali is "actually distancing" himself from Todt - when in reality he says the same, even stating "Jean Todt has already cleared this position from our point of view" - which means he agrees with Todt, don't you think so?
The essence of spin is to say something that is true, but with an inference.
Chevier is not a McLaren fan, judging by his wife's go at Hammy in Brazil, but he says...
"Itâ€™s obvious that one team wonâ€™t have to make the same effort as the other ten this winter. For the team in question, the common ECU and its language have been fully understood and assimilated. This means that it can concentrate its efforts in other areas while its rivals fine-tune the way the common ECU works. This team has also been given an advantage, as during the summer the majority of the top teams asked for functions to be added to the ECU and its programme. That could have given a few clues as to how to operate certain controls, the data acquisition philosophy, stocking, data processing etc."
This would apply to any SECU supplier unless they had come from outside F1.
"McLaren will have an advantage in the championship". Same thing, and yet different.
He also says it will need "monitoring". A vague doubt about something ...
These are subtle differences, but real. Political skill, not racing.
