Immediately after the end of the second free practice in Australia, rumors spread after the paddock that Mercedes had installed a so-called "FRIC" (front and rear interactive control) system in its W04 car, or a kind of legal version of active suspension. Electronically controlled suspension is banned in Formula One, and the hydraulic version could be the key to the speed of Mercedes race cars in the winding middle sector of the track in Barcelona, where winter testing took place.
German Auto Motor und Sport claims that the Germans have been preparing and testing the system for three years, and that they are also developing their own at Sauber.
