The FIA is set to hold talks with Ferrari to determine if its Spanish Grand Prix specification rear wing conforms to the sport’s regulations.

The team ran a revised rear wing on its F150° Italia challenger, with the wing featuring a higher-than-usual Gurney flap. Ferrari has taken a particular interpretation of the slot-gap separator regulations when designing and introducing this part.

  Ferrari's rear wing design has caused a stir
The legality of Ferrari’s latest rear wing design has been called into question by the FIA.

The FIA’s technical delegate Charlie Whiting has confirmed that the sport’s governing body will make a final decision on the legality of the wing before Saturday’s third and final practice session.

“We are aware of the developments on the Ferrari wing and we are discussing them with them,” Whiting is quoted as saying.

“It’s a very clever interpretation of the rules and we have got to decide whether it’s a good interpretation of the rules.”
