Red Bull and their 'height compensating' system could spell trouble.

'McLaren set for 0.3s ride-height boost'

'McLaren set for 0.3s ride-height boost'

Wednesday 7th April 2010

The saying "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" seems to be the perfect way to describe the technological race in Formula One the moment.

First there was the diffuser debacle, then it was McLaren's controversial f-duct device and now it's Red Bull's ride-height system.

Most teams have already designed their own double diffusers and a few have responded with the f-duct systems of their own. So last on the list (for now at least) is the low ride-height device which has allegedly given the Red Bulls a significant advantage in qualifying - helping them to gain three out of three pole positions this season.

However, McLaren, who initially questioned the legality of the system and then downplayed it, look like they will become the first team to imitate the device.

According to Mark Hughes' BBC blog, the new suspension system could be ready for the next grand prix in China and it will give McLaren a 'further 0.3s boost'.

'The intriguing thing regarding McLaren is that they hope to have new suspension parts in time for China that will allow an aerodynamically-enhanced qualifying performance, the car running with an optimally low ride-height which will then return itself to the higher ride height required when 150kg of fuel is put into the tank on race day.

'It's a system McLaren believes Red Bull has used since the start of the season, a claim denied by Red Bull.'

For sure Ferrari and the other teams will produce their own systems

FIA Warns: Ride-Height Changes Illegal

FIA wades in on ride-height debate

Thursday 8th April 2010

The FIA have clarified that any system allowing teams to alter the ride-height of their cars between qualifying and a race at grand prix weekends would be declared illegal.

The clarification comes after Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner was forced to deny over the course of the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend that his team were using such a system to get the best out of the RB6 during qualifying.

Such a system would be beneficial as under current rules teams are not allowed to adjust their cars following the end of qualifying.

Any self-altering system would allow a team to gain more aerodynamic performance by running low to the ground in qualifying trim, but then raise the height of the car when it is running on a full tank of fuel on race day.

McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh had recently hinted that his team were preparing to develop a system of their own, but the governing body have now stepped in.

A letter to all Formula One teams said: "Any system device or procedure, the purpose and/or effect of which is to change the set-up of the suspension, while the car is under parc ferme conditions will be deemed to contravene article 34.5 (which states that cars will start from the pit lane if any work is carried out following qualifying) of the sporting regulations."

The letter goes on to say "any self-levelling damper system is likely to contravene article 3.15 (governing aerodynamic rules) of the technical regulations".
