Red Bull is ready to protest the legality of the rear diffusers of three rival 2009 cars.

Red Bull is ready to protest the legality of the rear diffusers of three rival 2009 cars.

The energy drink marque's motor racing advisor Helmut Marko earlier this week declared that seven teams are "united" in their belief that the Brawn, Toyota and Williams cars fielded in winter testing were "illegal."

Reports that Red Bull had already lodged a protest were wide of the mark, because the cars to be raced at Albert Park this weekend are only due to be presented to scrutineers on Thursday.

But Marko has clarified that if the dubious aerodynamic solutions are indeed presented in Melbourne, "we'll make a protest."

"We'll make a protest on Thursday if the component isn't modified to conform to the regulations," the Austrian said.
