Contradicting reports on the splitter issue coming to light

After yesterdays reports in the Italian press on the FIA direction to Red Bull, Lotus and Mercedes to change the illegal splitters on their cars before China, we have BBC pitlane reporter Jennie Gow tweeted that she has "spoken to Lotus and Merc who say the FIA splitter story is just that - a story! Both teams passed tests and no changes to make."

“Neither Lotus and Mercedes nor Red Bull was asked to change the splitter. So everybody calm down!” ,said German correspondent for Auto Motor und Sport, Tobias Gruner.

Some of the teams believe that, in an attempt to get the FIA to investigate the splitter's of these cars, Ferrari may have shrewdly leaked some information to the Italian correspondents. 

See our report on the splitter issue, as reported earlier.
