Mar.14 (GMM) The current peace in Formula One may be short-lived.

That is the view of Niki Lauda, referring to the relative quiet at present in terms of teams accusing their rivals of cheating.

There have been rumblings about some teams' interpretations of the new exhaust rules, while others led by Mercedes are reportedly experimenting with promising new F-duct solutions.

"You can never trust peace in Formula One," triple world champion Lauda said in a pre-season interview with the broadcaster RTL.

"Each team tries to take the regulations right to the limit, which is perfectly legitimate. We'll have to see if the FIA needs to intervene at some point."
