Nobody having an iota of common sense expects Kimi or anybody from that team to spell certain highly confidential technicalities out. As things stands up to now (and I am talking car capabilities) the Lotus car is not the RB8 biggest challenger, in my opinion it is the other way round, the car at the front (capabilities wise) is the F138 and the Lotus might as well be the main challenger to the F138. My opinion is based on the fact that most of all the teams are now using the latest (must have) called “FRIC system” both the FERRARI and Lotus systems seems to have been sorted out the best. This latest system “called FRIC” is not new to F1, this is an adopted suspension hydraulic solution for managing roll and heave stiffness, it closely matches the 1995 Tyrrel hydrolink system.
