FIA tells Lotus front suspension layout illegal
Thanks to a McLaren-commissioned photo
Lotus has been told to bring a modified front suspension layout to next weekend’s German grand prix.
The FIA told the Enstone based team at Silverstone on Saturday that the current layout does not comply with the rules, Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport reports.
That is because the regulations allow a maximum of three suspension elements, but a McLaren-commissioned photo at Silverstone has revealed that Lotus’ 2013 layout has an obscured fourth.
