FIA considers Mercedes F1 wheel design matter ‘settled’

The FIA considers the matter surrounding Mercedes’ controversial wheel rim design on its F1 car to be “settled”.
Mercedes’ unique wheel rim concept, which features holes and grooves, has not been used by the team since the Japanese Grand Prix in a bid to avoid potential protests and legal action after growing suspicion from its rivals.
A request for clarification followed from the German manufacturer, with the FIA declaring the concept legal ahead of the Mexican Grand Prix.
“We think the matter is settled,” FIA race director Charlie Whiting said during the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend.
