FIA has eye on flexing Ferrari, Red Bull bodywork

Some flexing bodywork on the 2016 car has caught the eye of some rival teams.

That is the claim of Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport, revealing that at high speed the rear wing and ‘monkey seat’ of the red car flex, providing a likely aerodynamic advantage.

Not only that, correspondent Michael Schmidt said details on Red Bull’s front wing is also attracting attention, even though both the team and Ferrari are passing all of the current FIA flex tests.

He reports that the FIA is aware of the issue and could invoke Article 3.15 of the technical regulations that forbids any part of the car to move for aerodynamic gain.
