Tisk, tisk “Lulu is ALWAYS “catching up” isn’t he”, yes he is, read all the posts on this page!. Lulu apart, Mercedes looks like they went a step too far with their FRIC system like they did with their double F DUCT, the FRIC system being passive is not easy to setup without it being computerised, it even needs be setup from track too track. The system which has been in use for the last three years by most teams interconnects hydraulically right and left suspension unites to control roll and ride height, it does away with the third spring/shock absorber and the roll bar. Mercedes seems to be trying to control pitch by even connecting front to rear suspension unites, this to keep car rake as constant as possible under acceleration and braking and so not losing the diffuser effective seal (by exhaust plume) when this seal is lost tyre squirt will disrupt the effectiveness of the diffuser aero effect (down force) and tyre slip will set in.
