Flexi-Wing Regulations, Abu Dhabi 2021 Controversy, Driver Speculation, and Hamilton-Mercedes Relationship
Latest Developments and Controversies in the Formula 1 World Ahead of Italian Grand Prix
As the Formula 1 community anticipates the Italian Grand Prix, various controversies, rule changes, and speculations have taken center stage, shaping the narrative leading up to the event.
1. Flexi-Wing Regulations Return: The ongoing saga of flexi wings continues to captivate the Formula 1 world. The term “flexi wing” is no stranger to seasoned fans, as the FIA consistently seeks to regulate this phenomenon that could offer teams performance advantages. The FIA has reportedly issued a technical directive aimed at more effectively controlling potentially flexible bodywork. It’s been suggested that certain teams have found ways to create front and rear wing elements that can flex during races, evading detection during tests. To address this, teams are required to submit drawings of their components for scrutiny by September 8. Compliant designs will be mandated for use starting from the Singapore Grand Prix, held from September 15-17.
