Watched a bit of FP and saw this "trick" front wing in action with comments from Anthony Davidson - What a gizmo, its the first time i've seen it in action and Wow! You can visually see it working. It's as close to an active front wing as you can get, no wonder there so quick. If its legal its brilliant engineering

Absolutely agree with FreddyFreeloader.

Where's the bitter Mclaren lovers here ready to shoot anyone down unless they're associated with Hamilton? Hypocracy is a bad thing, the amount of times Kovalainen moved over for him in 2008 when nobody said a word discusts me and they moan at Ferrari about forfeiting championships! If so please forfeit your dirty 2008 title! They also got a head start on the F-Duct but no one else was crying like they are now, hope Mclaren and Hamilton burn this weekend.

@Tealeaf Heikki only moved over once for Lewis when he was on old rubber, and Lewis had just pitted, Heikki was in the next lap so that was pure stratagy and not team orders... A bit different to handing him the race I'd say :D

As far as the wing is concerned, technically its not within the rules... all they have done is found a way around the test for it.. A bit like an athelete taking masking agents to disguise drug use.

Yeah whatever the FIA deemed the wings LEGAL! Get your facts straight, and plenty of team orders by Mclaren to tell HK to slow down or move over, the only reason he hasn't handed a win to Hamilton was because he was never good enough to be in a position to hand him a win, but Im sure if he was Mclaren would of tried to be sly about it.

The Red Bull wing looks to me like it flexes more than Ferrari's famous flexi-wing used to flex which was banned and brought in these deflection tests. Grouch, your analogy to athletes using masking agents is a very interesting one. If there was an undetectable performance boosting drug then it wouldn't be deemed legal just because it passes the detection test. Using it would still be cheating. Tests are just a way of detecting cheating, not as a way of defining if a drug is legal. F1, on the other hand, seems to think cheating is okay provided you don't get caught.
