Teams to discuss Red Bull part

F1 teams meet to discuss a range of issue in Monte Carlo
F1 teams are to discuss the issue surrounding a hole in the floor of the Red Bull RB8 during a meeting for the FIA's technical working group in Monaco today [Monday].

The issue was raised over the course of the weekend with some rivals believed to be unhappy at the hole, which is just ahead of the rear wheels and is seen as a way to try and improve downforce.

Rumours that a protest against Red Bull would be launched after the race proved to be unfounded but the issue is now to be discussed when teams meet in Monte Carlo with the possibility that the FIA could perform a u-turn and declare the part is now illegal – forcing Red Bull into a change prior to the Canadian Grand Prix.

The hole has appeared at the Bahrain Grand Prix and was declared legal, with the two Red Bull cars successfully passing scrutineering at every race that has followed – including Monaco.

As well as the technical issues linked to the RB8, teams are also reported to be planning to discuss a variety of other topics, including ways in which to bring down the costs involved in competing in the sport and how better to police the Resource Restriction Agreement currently in place.

The v6 is a joke.. the Indy 2.2 12k rpm Turbo V6 seems to be a dog. Drivers complain of no torque at all. As soon as you take your foot out of it... it takes forever to get going again. Also sounds like a duck farting underwater. Not like the 900 hp v8 turbos of the past. F1 1.6 v6 with electric motor assist ..your kidding right! .

Obviously you guys don't realize the article is about Red Bull's Newey designed chassis, which may be outside of the rules. F1 has a continuing problem with keeping up with the best designers, whose job it is to get a jump on the competition. I can't see how they can control things, when the most creative minds in F1 are trying to outsmart them by exploiting the grey areas.
