You're probably right that James Allison won't have directly designed the suspension, but as long as he knows why the Lotus cars were kind on tires he should be able to transfer that knowledge to Ferrari.PlatinumZealot wrote:His name was not mentioned the commenator only referred to him as "the guy that designed the Lotus suspension" during the race. It could be a sarcastic, and incorrect, reference to James Allison, because the Haas does have the same control arm and pushrod elements as the SF16. However, to my knowledge James Allison doesn't design suspension systems. He was the technical director at lotus he wouldn't have time to sit at a computer designing the suspension system.
The SF-15T was very good on tires, might be a set-up trick as much as it is the suspension design.
