Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says he’s not happy with the FIA after Red Bull were granted permission to change certain elements on their rear wing ahead of the Brazillian Grand Prix, after Lewis Hamilton was disqualified on Saturday. Verstappen was disqualified from qualifying on Friday after a technical infringement regarding his rear wing.

The FIA launched an investigation into Hamilton and Mercedes, with a post-session technical check into the rear wing showing the DRS was found to be opening the wing more than the permitted distance.

However, an FIA document revealed Red Bull had been permitted to change the rear wing upper flap and rear wing flap snubber ahead of the race, seemingly angering the Mercedes boss.

“No I’m not [happy],” admits Wolff to Martin Brundle on the Grid Walk after finishing the conversation with FIA’s Nikolas Tombazis. “It’s being judged with two ways here in the sport at this time.

“We just heard for the third time in a row the Red Bull was allowed to change parts on the rear wing under parc ferme. I’m not complaining, we need to race anyway, but I need to clear that up with the FIA.”
