@Fiat Bater
"Teams are allowed to adjust wing during the race"
Not exactly, you may adjust your FRONT wing, to find the exact balance you wish to match your rear and make your car : neither under nor oversteering but just more balanced.
In fact its the rear -or main- wing that causes more Drag + Downforce in any configuration.

Rob-- Nahh I doubt that as Redbull's have been passed by the FIA and they had the most flexy of the flexy wings or floors depending on what you believe. Fernando's full wet setup may pay off in spades tomorrow. A bold gamble nonetheless.

Hmm, after reading into the issue further, it seems that the wings are flexing less but that could also be due to the lower downforce they are running here. Going to be hard to get a true picture until after Monza.

The teams are allowed to change tyres on the grid if it starts wet. Also, the change counts as a hard/soft change so if it starts to dry they can change to slicks without having to stop again unless the weather changes again.

Boufie, yes, I knew about the tyre changes, but my question was about what happens if teams think they want to start on intermediates. If the track is slightly damp and some drivers want to start on inters, are they allowed to make that change before the race starts, or does it have to be wet enough to require wets before the top 10 cars get a free tyre change?
