Ferrari 248 - Top ViewAs reported on sportnetworknet

“The FIA will clarify the situation before we get to Melbourne,” said Fry. “That’s what we need. All we asked Charlie Whiting is which interpretation is correct. It would be unfortunate if Ferrari’s interpretation is said to be right because all the other teams will have to do similar things.”

However, it’s understood that at least three teams, McLaren included, are running similar flexi-wing solutions. The issue revolves around aerodynamic planes that appear to flatten at speed, allowing air to pass over less restricted than normal, resulting in less drag and more speed.

UPDATE 21.March.2006

“We have had concerns regarding several teams but we are confident that these concerns will be resolved before Melbourne,” a spokesman for the International Automobile Federation (FIA) said on Monday
