FIA says Red Bull, Ferrari front wings legal

The FIA's Jo Bauer on Sunday eased a burgeoning controversy about flexible front wings.

Before the German grand prix, team boss Christian Horner fended off new rumours about Red Bull's front wing - the one infamously switched between Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel at Silverstone two weeks ago.

Both RB6s wore the new wing specification throughout the Hockenheim weekend, where photographs of its extremities bending towards the ground did the rounds in rival team garages.

In-car video footage of the Red Bull appeared to support the claims, while the photographs also depicted a bending wing on the Ferrari.
