    As James said, the requirements are that the front wing does not move more than 10mm at 500 newtons of pressure and Redbull have designed such a unit.
    Now if it moves more than 10mm with more pressure, it’s still within regulations as the regulations don’t dictate anything else.
    So now Whitmarsh is having a cry as he feels he should have the blue prints made public from the Redbull team so he can make such a front wing. That thought is ludacris! If your team of engineers are not capable of designing/building innovation, then give them a mid-year bonus for more incentive to work harder. Redbull are innovative this year and that’s why they are faster.
    I hate it when a team designs a great kit that is passed via technical regulation scrutineering, but other teams deem them illegal or strive for it to be banned because they didn’t think of it first.
    I’m all for McLaren for winning the championship, just I hate this attitude towards other teams building something within the rules and other teams forcing the designers to hand over their hard work

    Whitmarsh hasn’t said anything untoward. He has just said he won’t put in a protest and is genuinely intrigued how it is being done. No doubt the McLaren engineers are trying to figure it out.
