The flexible wing saga will not be a loud topic during the Italian Grand Prix weekend, Martin Whitmarsh has predicted.

New flexible floor tests for the Monza event required minor car modifications up and down pitlane, and when discussing flexing wings during Friday's FIA press conference, a minor spat broke out between technical bosses for the Ferrari, Red Bull and McLaren teams.

But McLaren team boss Whitmarsh said the issue should not be a problem.

"I haven't seen anything suspicious," the Briton is quoted by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

"But it is true we have been concentrating more on our own programme.

"I know the FIA did some tests after (Friday) practice and I hope that the subject is not a big problem this weekend," added Whitmarsh.
