The FIA is optimistic that no teams will file a protest about so-called flexi-wings at the Malaysian Grand Prix today.
A series of meetings between team principals and senior technical figures have taken place in the Sepang paddock this morning. The cars of three teams, one of which is Ferrari, have been closely examined too.
The FIA is happy that no team is in breach of the regulations concerning moveable body parts, although any one of the 11 can lodge a protest at any stage of a Grand Prix weekend.
The FIA would face three key questions if a protest was made over such an issue.
The first would be simply is the subject illegal? The second is, if it is, has the part been designed and made that way deliberately? The third is, does it offer a performance advantage?
The question of flexible wings came to light at the Bahrain Grand Prix last week and involved allegations over Ferrari's rear wing.
Speculation has rumbled on in the Malaysian paddock all weekend, but a Ferrari spokesman told autosport.com earlier today: "We do not comment on any rumour. If there is a problem, there is a procedure through the FIA."
