One of the biggest problems of trying to reverse engineer an F1 development is that the science is never truly understood. It is not always possible to get to an endpoint without making many wrong turns/failures with each failure contributing to the end-product.
I would say no. It is not possible to copy the RBR car. You may end up with something that looks like the RBR but it won't perform like it.

With the curiously big time advantage in Q3 only and on race day at least ferrari and macs creeping closer ,the decision to just drop your ideas and follow Redbull is not an easy one...as one can see with toro rosso the details must be quite subtle that do the trick..
Newey stated more than once that he decided on pullrod assuming ddd would not be feasible and he would not have chosen this solution if he knew before.
For this season they stuck to it because they learned a lot in 2009 about the advantages of pullrod and with ddd banned for 2011 it will be a real benefit...
so a move towards pullrod rear suspension could be a good strategical plan for teams,starting now compromising their season wich is lost anyways but building
knowledge for 2011
