Great detective work Flood
Fascinating article and pics.You can clearly see how this would allow the front wing to run so much lower and ideed run below the reference plane which is clearly illegal.
The bit I find dificult to comprehend is why the other teams could not work this out for themselves.They are after all stuffed full of very highly paid engineers and aerodynamacists who should have spotted this much earlier.
The question is "what happens now".If indeed both RBR and Ferrari's results have been gained by using an illegal car will their previous results be annulled.?

These devices where banned from Malaysia onwards 2007!!!

Did you just trawl the F1 technical website for this nonense once you heard the term 'flexi-floor'.

They wern't outlawed. The Ferrari spring and all other splitter support devices had to be removed before the floors were tested. Then they reinstall them.

And Whitmarsh said, "The [FIA] requirements for Monza really will end what has been a misnomer: the bodywork is intended to be attached rigidly with no degrees of freedom and when you look at bib stays that hinge, buckle, slide and have dampers, it seems a bit bizarre to me."

Maybe you should ask him about the nonsense.
