McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh has admitted that his design team is working 'quite hard' on a ride height control system following suspicions that Red Bull already employs one.

Dave, 10.1.2 means that the active suspension systems, which changed the ride height to keep the car a uniform distance from the ground are outlawed.

I'm curious to know when the Red Bull changes its ride height. At the end of qualifying the cars go into parc ferme and cannot be altered apart from refuelling until the race starts. Once the race starts the car is in motion and the regs say the suspension cannot be altered while the car is moving. So if the RBR has a low ride height in qualifying, how come it isn't scraping the ground during the first stint of the race?
