Hi,

only affects tehe rear wheels.
Nothing has been confirmed and thus everthing is still a rumour (as
always)

See ya,

But Norbert Haug, Sporting Director of the well known Mclaren-Mercedes
team, felt unlikely because of details unveiled to the press.
It has been agreed by McLaren-Mercedes, Ferrari and the FIA that protest
and appeals against each other wont be disclosed anymore.

Dennis told Todt that McLaren would protest.
Todt asked FIA to verify Ferrari's cars.
Todt asked FIA to place an official in Ferrari's pit during qualifying.
McLaren have not protested.
