They’ve moved from the Mercedes ‘raise suspension
as high as possible’ model to the Ferrari ‘high intake so keep suspension low’ philosophy.
So no, don’t think this will change.
Sauber didnt copy it from Mercedes, they invented them the same year.
Sauber had it since day 1. It was Mercedes who brought it later in the season
Yes, aware of the lineage of the suspension philosophy (albeit, as shown above, STR and Mercedes launched cars at pretty much the same time with this type of front suspension) - I used ‘Mercedes’ and ‘Ferrari’ as shorthand buckets for the two of philosophy when it comes to suspension height; the point being that a lower suspension ‘matches’ a high sidepod inlet, so no reason to assume this will change on the STR.
Apologies if this wasn’t clear.
