So, it’s banned after all…

Just like I had warned a while ago, when news started coming out that the FIA had approved the system, it turns out that the FIA have effectively banned its use and Lotus will be unable to even test the system during the first pre-season tests @ Jerez. The reason for banning it is not yet entirely clear, but we will get back to you on that as it unfolds.


  1. Honestly, to me, it was a bit unexpected.
    There are two reasons why this whole thing failed (I guess):
    – what has been presented initially to FIA wasn’t what’s real.
    Talking about terms “stability under braking” and “ride height system” – might end up being totally different things, hence the second isn’t allowed.
    – Teams have protested.
    Either teams who don’t have the money/knowledge or teams that have feared fierce advantage.

    Anyway, I don’t think it was such a big deal, as I wrote yesterday –
