Mercedes and Red Bull have changed the design of their suspensions

Technical delegate FIA Charlie whiting said that teams Mercedes and Red Bull have listened to the recommendations of the Federation, and made changes in the design of the suspensions of their cars.Earlier, the FIA issued a list of five demands to the structure of the suspensions. During the tests in Barcelona, the representatives of the Federation checked the car and gave recommendations. In particular, a lot of controversy was the design of the front suspension from Mercedes and Red Bull, which is able to maintain a stable clearance during acceleration, braking and cornering, and Ferrari even threatened to file a protest after the finish of the first race of the season to challenge such a decision. In the end, the team withdrew from the disputed systems.Charlie whiting "Requirements are necessary in order to ensure that the suspension works exactly like the suspension, and does not give a definite advantage in aerodynamics. During the tests in Barcelona, our staff Martin Budkowski and Joe Bauer have carefully studied all the systems. In Australia we again checked the car, and now all designs fit our requirements".

Martin Brundle, the New leadership will change this world

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Martin Brandl believes that the new leadership of the championship will help the Royal race to ascend to a new level of popularity.Martin Brandl "I think Formula 1 up to this point relied only on their own history and the legacy of the past. But that impulse passed, and the championship went down the wrong path in several key moments. So I think with new media and many other aspects of the championship will be able to access new opportunities and achieve new heights of popularity.Bernie Ecclestone has done a lot right, made a lot of money and popularity for the sport. But when he came to new technology and a new era of technology, he just hid his head in the sand. You can't do that, because we live in a different technological and information world that does not see Ecclestone".

Martin Brundle does Not know, will the changes have effect

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Martin Brandl admitted that he did not know that will bring new rules to the Royal race.Martin Brandl "of Course, the cars and the racing will definitely be different from last year, but how much The championship has come a long way, full of mistakes to make racing better. I remember the days of blown diffusers when Red Bull could take almost any turn, sinking the gas pedal to the floor.Then there are new hybrid engines, which do not sound as good as I would like.New cars will have more downforce and tyres that are 25 percent wider than their predecessors. The car will also be wider and slightly longer. It will be a monster on wheels. But give us an interesting race - we'll see.The braking distance will be shorter. More traction means that drivers can slow down on four or five meters later. It also means that pilots will have fewer opportunities for overtaking.View, perhaps the race will turn into the drive one after another for one and a half hours".
