    Not really, benefits are probably small and the FIA have already banned the system for 2021. Their new rear suspension might be more interesting, acting like a double diffusor it seems.
    Smart idea though.
    Intel i7-7770K Kaby Lake @4.2Ghz, Cooler Master 212 Evo, 16 Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 RAM, Asus ROG Strix Z270H motherboard, Asus RTX 2070 Turbo 8Gb, Cooler Master 700 Watt PSU, Windows 10 64-bit.

    Being 'Mercedes' they'll get away with it, legal or not.
    Is it useful? Perhaps.

    Comment re Red Bull:"The car looks fantastically agile in the medium-high speed sequences, notably between Turns 2-3. The abruptness with which Max Verstappen and Alex Albon could change direction there shaded even the Mercedes (assuming they were running similar fuel loads). But thatís not the essential key to super-fast Barcelona laps; rather the big gains are to be made in the slow-speed sections in Turns 4, 5, 10 and the chicane. Here, it has not yet been as easy a car to manoeuvre as the Mercedes."

    Apparently there are gains to be made, in which case the 'Purple Pole Syndrome' will most likely see the entire grid sporty similar trick front suspension packages, whether good, bad or indifferent.
    Particularly as it has been judged 'legal'................except it would appear not to be so from 2021 onward.

    All very 'Monty Pythonesque' as usual.

    If innovation keeps getting banned, then before you know it, F1 will have 'template' cars like Indycar.......

    Effwun is moving in that direction Ed, just browse the 2021 'regulations'.
