I think FRIC might not matter as much as you think, i remember when Blown diffusers where restricted and everyone though redbull would be in huge trouble but Mclaren was the one most effected.

I reckon it's going to make a massive difference with all that fluid floating around assisting traction together with front end grip now missing.

Something the Old Guard won't be accustomed to.

Nobody is saying much so their must be concerns

One team principal said that a good FRIC system is worth at least one half second per lap, that tyres will suffer, that the rake of the car being used cannot be used without FRIC and not running that sort of rake will effect aero down force.
