"With the front wing an adjustable mechanism is acceptable, because if it breaks then the driver simply gets understeer," the Swiss told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

"A moveable rear wing is insane," Sauber added. "If something goes wrong, you just fly off the track."
Peter - if you want to play with the technology, and want to benefit from it, you take your chances. Use a fixed wing if you don't like a movable one - same as the front end.
