As reported on F1Complete

BMW-Sauber Fins

FIA wrote: “In view of recent developments to bodywork forward of the cockpit opening on some cars, we have become concerned that these devices may impair the forward and/or lateral vision of the driver. “Therefore, under Article 2.3 of the F1 Technical Regulations, unless any team concerned can clearly demonstrate to the satisfaction of the technical delegate and the stewards that their driver’s vision is not impaired in any way by such devices, no bodywork higher than the top of the front roll structure will be permitted forward of it.”

So much for the “Twin Towers”, but they did provide some comic-relief when they came out of the pit-garage [though can’t say same thing for their aerodynamic efficiency].
