Taz, I don't think so, mclaren was part of the group that declared they will not protest anybody running FRIC, but there was never any hope of an anonymous agreement, it looks like nobody is willing to take the risk and run FRIC, and certainly non challenging the FIA about the legality of FRIC, and if the rumours doing the rounds about part B of the FIA plane to clamp down on the rate and flow of the hybrid output are true, the FIA will force it through in the same way, without much fuss. (this because of technical matters that contradict two rules about the turbo/MGU-H).

Likely this change at McLaren has nothing to do with politics. By removing FRIC they are making way for a new title sponsor BIC. BIC is rumored to be developing a radical new BIC suspension which uses ink rather than hydraulic fluid.

I heard they will be using lighter fluid instead of gas too. It supposed to be more fuel-cost efficient.

So in favor of cost cutting they want to abandon tech that costs hundreds of millions to develop?

In favor of cost cutting they spent hundreds of millions to develop new power units?

Etc...

Now pardon me I have to go buy a solid gold house to save money on paint.
