Mumbling about Ferrari's rear wing

A number of teams have been muttering about the way in which the rear wing of the Ferrari 248F1 flexes under loading. The FIA has inspected the car and says it is legal but some of the other teams are not happy with the decision.

"I am not at all happy about it," Renault's Pat Symonds told "It is very clear what you can or cannot do. There might be specific rules about specific parts, but there are also general rules and I know exactly what that wing does. And that is not what I would expect."

This presumably means that other teams will adopt the same systems in the future as if something is legal on a Ferrari, it is presumably legal on other F1 cars as well.
