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" class="posttag">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" class="posttag">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".
