F1's governing body has vowed to adjudicate on the controversy about the hole in the floor of Red Bull's 2012 cars.
Ferrari and McLaren reportedly came close to officially protesting against Mark Webber's win immediately after the 2012 Monaco F1 GP but the team was apparently persuaded to wait until Monday, when the issue would be discussed at the sport's high-profile meeting in the principality.
Since then it has emerged that the FIA has vowed to issue "a clarification" about the regulations relating to holes in the floor of cars before the upcoming Canadian GP.
Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali was quoted thus: "All I can say is that we need a clarification on this point."
And according to Italy's Autosprint, McLaren's Martin Whitmarsh added: "It is not for me to judge the legality of a competitor's car, it is for the FIA, but I think we will get that (clarification) before the next race."
