Such a shame for the neutral F1 fans favorite team and probably the most feelgood success story of the whole weekend.
Rotten luck Sauber,but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Why the hell is this not pickd up in Scrutineering BEFORE the race.. this makes a total farce of racing, and the ability of the organising body.. should this not have been picked up prior to the practice sessions.

Total agreement with Realfan 10. How the hell the cars pass scrutineering? Do the scrutineers even bother to look at the cars, or they just rubber stamp it and shout "NEEEXT!"?

This is boll.ox.

Did nobody tell them they are not allowed to finish in front of a red car.
The whole scrutineering staff should be replaced as they obviously can't be trusted to do the job they are given.
They would have been better to keep quiet and may handed out some rollickings to the people who missed it. Good old F1 they always screw something up.

Originally I'd heard they were disqualified for improper actuation of the wing, so it sounds like the BBC reporter didn't understand this technical description either. I agree with the above comments asking why this wasn't detected before the race started. When will the FIA and the stewards begin to understand that it does the sport no good at all for someone to see a great drive on the Sunday and then to find out hours later that the driver they were cheering has been disqualified.
