An interesting question from Rob about the new front wing flex test which I don’t and never believed it falls within the theme of my arguments on this page, namely, of (being over the line of the rules/illegal/cheating) for the simple reason that as long as a car passes the FIA set weight test the car cannot but be legal. The term flex shouldn’t be used anymore as technically it developed from flex to twisting backwards and from there to oscillating up and down mimicking the effects of a mass damper, greatly effecting the tyre patch and so the temperature operating window to a near constant, the effect of the new test will depend not on the weights but entirely on where the weights are placed. It should be noted that technically speaking it is not possible to produce any part of the car with zero flex or twist.
