Red Bull responds to Lewis Hamilton’s innuendo: “Flexible rear wing Max Verstappen is perfectly legal”

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has responded to the question marks Lewis Hamilton had about the ‘flexible’ rear wing he saw on Max Verstappen’s F1 car.

After qualifying on Saturday, Lewis Hamilton had commented on the rear wing of the Red Bull F1 car. It would be very ‘flexible’ and could therefore bend too much on the straights. The flexibility of the front and rear wings of F1 cars has been a topic of discussion for much longer.

In the past, the F1 teams often sought the limits of the permissible, because the more a wing deflects on a straight piece, the higher top speed can be achieved. That is why strict controls on the deflection of the wings have been in place for a few years now. According to Red Bull team boss Christian Horner, there is nothing illegal about the rear wing of Red Bull.

“Our car has of course gone through scrutineering and has had to undergo all kinds of tests, including checks on the deflection of the wings,” Horner responded to the comments of Hamilton. “The FIA ​​is completely satisfied with the car and it has successfully passed these very rigorous tests.”

According to Max Verstappen’s team boss, Lewis Hamilton’s statements were also whispered by Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff.

“It’s something Toto has spoken about before. I doubt it is Lewis’ own opinion, it probably came from somewhere else. ”

Legal or illegal, the rear wing in question did not help Max Verstappen to victory during the Spanish GP. The Dutchman had to settle for second place behind Lewis Hamilton in the Red Bull F1 car.
