It seems the RBR wing is on the pit stop practice car, that gets used after the days running, but oddly it could be legal!

NASCAR are thinking of making their cars quieter. Presumably they've seen how much of a smash hit idea that has proved in F1.
Very interesting that here at Geneva Motor Show the most exposed racing cars are Formula E – more than F1, GTs or LMPs.

Really feel for the boys & girls at McLaren at the moment. A bad start like this translates into huge workload at an already tough time. ✊
