"It must be something that can be copied quite quickly; otherwise they wouldn't try so hard to keep it secret."
If you would read it precisely, you would know, that he isn't stating that it's always easy to copy.
He said that he believes that Mercedes has something that can be copied quite quickly, otherwise something... It clearly shows that he knows that not every solution can be copied quickly, he knows that there are some solutions that can be copied quickly, and there are others, who cannot be copied quickly, cannot be copied anyhow or aren't worth-copying. He believes that Mercedes solution belongs to first group, but not every solution is so.
End of story. Improve your English, reading ability and critical thinking before you start another "discussion".
And it's not weird story that people don't want to waste time to answer your trolling and wrong interpretation of Newey's words. I'm patient, so I do this, but not every have enough time, patience etc. it's no use to discuss with you in this way.
