The mystery surrounding Red Bull’s disappearing front wing has unravelled in the Spanish press this week.
Before the very similar-looking and ‘fluttering’ Ferrari version made its debut recently, Red Bull revealed they never recovered the front wing of Mark Webber’s car after his Monza crash. Some speculation suggested it had made its way straight to the design desks at Maranello. But a Spanish fan, who attended the Italian Grand Prix, went some way to allaying those suspicions this week in the pages of the Marca sports daily.
He submitted photos showing pieces of the Webber wing, and revealing that other fans took home the other bits as similar carbon-fibre souvenirs.
“It never entered my head to give it to Ferrari,” the unnamed fan said. “I didn’t think it was so important.”
