McLaren’s controversial rear wing on their MP4-25 has been declared legal by the FIA, after inspections today.

The controversy surounded a hole or slot just above the driver’s head, which fed air away from the back of the car, to stall the rear wing. The initial appearance of the slot was for oil cooling, but this has since been proved wrong by this investigation.

Ferrari and Red Bull were the teams who, rather than complained, simply wanted clarification over the issue.

Unlike last year, this problem has been dealt with quickly and professionally, and it’s great to see these sort of decisions speeded up. The double-decker diffuser issue still hasn’t left F1, so hopefully this will be the end of the news about this new innovation.
