Red Bull passes new flexi test

F1 Grand Prix - Hot News - Red Bull passes new flexi test - Breaking News - F1 Racing

Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner was confident that his cars would pass the new extra load testing on the front wings after complaints from other teams that they were flexing too much, and he was right, with the FIA clearing Mark Webber’s car on Friday evening.

Webber’s RB6 and Lewis Hamilton’s McLaren were chosen at random to undergo the new tougher front wing deflection tests and both passed with flying colours and found to be ‘in conformity with 2010 FIA Formula 1 technical regulations.’

While Ferrari was also subject of the allegations, their cars were not chosen for testing, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be before the weekend is over.

I watched closely during practice, qualifying and the race. It didn't look like the wing was flexing as much as it was in Germany and Hungary. Maybe they "fixed" it!
