The controversial Mercedes Formula 1 DRS rear wing design legality being re-assessed by the FIA
Teams are in a huge fuss this year over how Mercedes designed their rear wing believing it is not legal and giving Mercedes-Petronas an unfair advantage. The results do not show a big advantage for Mercedes thus far but the FIA is being pressured into assessing the design and ruling on whether it is fair or foul. Now, Mercedes built the wing system with approval from the FIA to begin with so where is the beef? We think Mercedes should be applauded for their ingenuity and if other teams have an issue with it they should start working on their own design.
We will keep you updated on what happens but for now the system is legal. The other teams will likely continue protesting in hopes of a ruling that outlaws the DRS wing.
