FIA satisfied over Ferrari, Red Bull flexi-wings concerns

Some rival teams had questioned over the Canadian Grand Prix weekend whether a rear wing design run by Ferrari was against the rules.

At high speed the rear wing and ‘monkey seat’ of the Ferrari car flex, providing a likely aerodynamic advantage.

Also Red Bull’s front wing is also attracting attention, even though both the team and Ferrari are passing all of the latest FIA flex tests.

Article 3.15 of the F1 Technical Regulations reads “any specific part of the car influencing its aerodynamic performance must be rigidly secured to the entirely sprung part of the car.”

F1 race director Charlie Whiting told Motorsport.com: “The rear wings were checked on the top five constructors [on Saturday] and all were in conformity.

“We even increased the load by 50 percent in order to see if there was anything happening above the test load and all was well.”

As for Red Bull Racing, team boss Christian Horner insisted his team’s RB12 complied with the rules.

He told Autosport: “The car has passed all the tests, they’ve looked at all these things in great scrutiny and there are no issues.”
