FRIC in F1 is now officially banned by FIA

Mercedes W05 front suspension FRIC (front and rear interconnected suspension) has now been officially banned by Formula 1′s governing body. A controversy about the suspension system came to a head before Hockenheim, when the FIA flagged the potential illegality of the technology. In the end, every team using FRIC agreed to remove the systems voluntarily in Germany and also Hungary.

The decision follows a meeting between team technical bosses and the FIA's Charlie Whiting.
