F1 Diffuser Row Ends With Brawn GP’s Diffuser Legal [Racing News]
         

A major source of contention in this whirlwind of a Formula One season has been a new diffuser design used by Brawn, Toyota and Williams. The appeal against them was just rejected by the FIA.

The FIA has rejected the appeals brought against the teams using the new diffusers by Ferrari, Red Bull Racing, Renault, McLaren and BMW. The decision is a major boost for Brawn GP, which leads the championship after Jenson Button’s back to back wins in Australia and Malaysia.

“The FIA technical department, the stewards at the Australian and Malaysian Grands Prix and now five judges at the ICA [motorsport governing body FIA’s International Court of Appeal] have confirmed our belief that our cars have always strictly complied with the 2009 technical regulations,” Ross Brawn, the clear benefactor of the decison said. “The decision of the ICA brings this matter to its conclusion and we look forward to continuing on the track the challenge of what has been a very exciting start to the world championship.”

If you’re curious about the precise technical details of Brawn’s new diffusers, Forumula1.net has a great explanation.
