Ferrari wing protested

Michael Schumacher, Ferrari, Sepang, 2006Eight teams have given the FIA notice of their intent to protest Ferrari running what the other teams believe is an illegal wing – but it is their front wing, not their rear wing, which is coming under fire.

The teams believe the uppermost part of the Ferrari wing deflects too greatly at high speed and is therefore a ‘moveable aerodynamic device’ prohibited by the rules. Ferrari’s rear wing had previously come under scrutiny for the same reason. The new aerodynamic package including the current front wing was introduced immediately prior to the Bahrain Grand Prix.

It is expected that, if Ferrari perform very well in Malaysia, the eight teams will lodge a formal protest. It is understood that the two non-protesting teams are Red Bull Racing, who receive Ferrari engines, and their junior team Scuderia Toro Rosso.
