FIA to address BMW wing issue before Indy

The 'flexi-wing' saga continues
Honda, or any other team for that matter, did not protest BMW-Sauber's results in Montreal as the 'flexi-wing' saga continues to bubble.

This is despite the fact that Nick Heidfeld finished in the points, thus preventing Honda's Jenson Button from taking the final point.

However, boss Nick Fry held talks with the FIA's Charlie Whiting before the race and was apparently convinced to drop his protest threat.

Fry said : ''(Whiting) made it clear that all he could do was apply a normal test to their car.''

However, it is understood that Whiting will continue to investigate the matter and is likely to have further talks in Indianapolis later this week.

Fry said : ''It's not fair and it's somewhat amazing that what they are doing is not denied.''

He point-blank refused BMW's argument that the rear wing in question is legal. ''It's ludicrous. It is very clear to the rest of us - it is illegal pure and simple,'' said Fry, ''and the FIA do need to look into it.''
