Max Mosley at the weekend said he does not believe "the inversion of the established order" in formula one can be simply reduced to the controversy about diffusers.

According to AFP France, the FIA president made the comments on a visit to the Portugal rally, adding that he has no idea which way the Court of Appeal hearing on April 14 will go.

The Briton said there are arguments "for and against" the use of the so-called double or triple-step diffusers.

At Sepang last weekend, meanwhile, Ross Brawn revealed that he proposed to the F1 teams' technical working group a full year ago to amend the 2009 regulations so that certain loopholes could not be exploited.

"I offered them and they were rejected, so my conscience is very clear. And those rules that I put on the table would have stopped a lot of things," he told reporters in Malaysia.

Brawn third driver Alex Wurz agrees that, with the regulations ultimately set in stone, no-one can now complain about legitimate side-effects of the loopholes.

He told Sport Bild: "In my view formula one has regulations, and where within these rules you are able to innovate, you do. All the teams do it, and our diffuser is a good example."
