Both Saubers have now been excluded from the race results for a technical infringement involving bodywork.
That means the result is now Massa 7th, Buemi 8th, Sutil 9th, di Resta 10th.
The issue is the upper rear wing element. The rules say ‘the local concave radius of curvature may not be smaller than 100mm,’ and both cars breached that.
The rules concerned is new for this year. The test is conducted with a template and would not have come to light until after the race because not all FIA tests are conducted routinely every weekend.
Technical director James Key took a sample of the rear wing to race control but didn’t want to comment when he returned to the paddock.
Update: Sauber has lodged a ‘statement of intention to appeal,’ so the matter is not over yet.
