Ferrari's Wing Designs Cause Disagreement in Malaysia

March 23, 2006

Michael Schumacher’s F1 car has been object of controversy since the Malaysian Grand Prix took place.

Eight of the eleven teams that were participating in the Malaysian Grand Prix signed and sent a letter looking for answers to clarify the rules about wing designs for the F1 cars. This due to all the debate that Schumacher’s car started when everybody saw it flexing at high speed. The eight teams threatened to protest on Sunday against Schumacher’s Ferrari if actions weren’t taken.

The protest letter was signed by these F1 teams: BMW-Sauber, Honda, Midland, Renault, Toyota, Super Aguri, McLaren and Williams and it claimed that Ferrari had been allowed to improve their aerodynamic performance at speed by using a front wing design that moved at high speed giving them an advantage over the other F1 cars.

At the end the protest didn’t take place after the F1 teams affirmed they expected a solution to the problem to be found and FIA (International Automobile Federation) declared this will be solved before the Australian Grand Prix on April 2nd.

At the F1 Malaysian Grand Prix Ferrari experienced engine problems: Schumacher ended sixth and Felipe Massa fifth.
