F1 will be inspecting the aero surfaces a lot more closely. The aero surfaces (basically the front and rear wings) are not meant to flex under high load. Of course they do very slightly - whilst carbon fibre is very rigid it still flexes a bit. But some teams (Red Bull) are suspected of having the rear wing flex under load by design i.e. there is a "weakness" or less rigidity designed into the carbon fibre that allows it to flex more and provide a boost particularly to straight line speed.
The additional inspections will start in 3 races time giving the teams (Red Bull) the chance to make sure their cars meet the new testing criteria.
