At the ery least, if not wholly redesign the whole suspension, it would need to be modified to accommodate increased weight at the wheel/tire. It's not unreasonable to assume a few other tweaks were done at the same time.

but flying to Bahrain/Yas Marina isn't a great option either when almost all of the teams are from Europe.

These guys could afford to ship the cars anywhere in the world ... were they allowed

Yes, but the cost difference between Geoff and his MAN and a the same space on a 747 cargo is.. not small. Plus you can overnight parts to Spain in a Transit.
