A few journalists out of the Monaco paddock are Tweeting that some of the teams are unhappy with Red Bull’s revised floor layout, and are anticipating a protest after the race:
Jon Noble @NobleF1
Lots of talk in the paddock among teams this morning about Red Bull Racing’s floor design. Am doing some digging
Jennie Gow @JennieGow
Could be a protest looming after the race as the Red Bull floor comes under scrutiny from the other teams. Interesting times ahead #F1

Andrew Benson @andrewbensonf1
Will someone chance a one-stop? Plus Mercedes, Ferrari and McLaren apparently unhappy about Red Bull floor. Impending protest? #BBCF1
Nobody seems to have any details on what the teams are actually unhappy about, though Craig Scarborough has a few ideas:
Craig Scarborough @ScarbsF1
Likely floor issues are going to be slots infront of the rear tyres, flexibility or the detail dimensions. lets see
Others still claim the FIA are already aware of the issue:
Tobias Grüner F1 @tgruener
#F1 #Monaco There seems to be a fully enclosed hole in the Red Bull floor, which could be illegal. FIA investigating right now.
And the BBC are reporting that McLaren, Ferrari and Mercedes are all unhappy with the design. Stay tuned for more.
