Sour grapes? This is far less a concern than their exhaust search. Several times this had happened, like supports for the nose bridge wings, or the slot gap separator. If I recall, they even made them drill holes in the air box at one point.

It's a non issue, and I'm sure they will reapply what they learned in a stricter manner now that the rule has been clarified.

As one has the use of a disagree button on Crash Net it is normal for one to disagree with the contents of a post, when I disagree with the contents of a post I always counter that post with what I believe are valid arguments, so it is my believe that when one just presses the disagree button and leave it at that it means he will be hearing/reading something which he doesn't like to hear/read but have no arguments to counter the contents with.

sunny. i have just disagreed. a protest has to be lodged within a certain time scale after a race. NO team has lodged a protest, so one cannot now be entertained. further, as you know, red bull have a written document from the fia stating that their interpretation of the regs was in order. the latest tech doc from fia states that the revised ruling applies from the date of the document but not before.

there are ample precedents for an item that has belatedly declared not correct, not being declared retrospective. in fact, if such a directive was declared retrospective, then all hell would break loose. imagine how many wdcs would not have been wdcs. alonso and schumi being the most obvious.

i dont see all sites, but i have seen no mention of any challenge, and i would safely bet that there would/could be none
