After clearing the new wings on the BMW in France; the FIA have now determined that they will ban anything that could impair the vision of a driver.  I appreciate that BMW is the only one with these wings and yet the FIA does not name them; rather they say “some cars”.  Now that is the politically correct way of singling out a team, no?  Sheesh.

“In view of recent developments to bodywork forward of the cockpit opening on some cars, we have become concerned that these devices may impair the forward and/or lateral vision of the driver.
“Therefore, under Article 2.3 of the F1 Technical Regulations, unless any team concerned can clearly demonstrate to the satisfaction of the technical delegate and the stewards that their driver’s vision is not impaired in any way by such devices, no bodywork higher than the top of the front roll structure will be permitted forward of it.”
