Ferrari and McLaren reportedly came close to officially protesting Mark Webber's win immediately after the Monaco Grand Prix.

They were apparently persuaded to wait until Monday, when the issue would be discussed at the sport's high profile meeting in the Principality.

After that, 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 forthcoming Canadian Grand Prix.

"All I can say is that we need a clarification on this point," Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali is quoted as saying.

Also according to Italy's Autosprint, McLaren's Martin Whitmarsh added: "It is not for me to adjudge the legality of a competitor's car, it is for the FIA.

"But I think we will get that (clarification) before the next race."
