Nobody ruled it out, having one problem doesn't stop you from having another.
The assumption is they compromised the rear mechnically for aero gains on other tracks deliberately, and without the aero working properly it's giving them a bit of a double whammy of issues at traction biased circuits.
Correct, who knows, maybe their suspension doesn’t stiffen up enough under high speed (cornering). That could be called an aero problem right?
It's the low speed corners where it struggles more.
Teams run a pseudo-active suspension. A passive system, which acts like an active one, without the use of a computer and electronic actuators.
For optimal performance, they need a soft suspension for good mechanical grip during low speed corner exits, but a very firm/stable setup for high speed cornering, because to much roll will hurt aerodynamics.
If McL’s psuedo-active suspension is less advanced, they will be to stiff for low speed corners or to soft on hi speed corners.
