If I understand the concept correctly the Merc had a long wheelbase to free up space for the complicated barge boards. The whole concept was build around these barge boards and the brake ducts. I think the suspension does not play the main role.henry wrote: ↑Mon Jan 03, 2022 8:51 amHowever the understanding of the suspension used to keep the low rake platform at a consistent orientation has not changed. Although some of the components used to do it are now no longer legal.Neno wrote: ↑Mon Jan 03, 2022 1:29 amLow rake aero concept from 2014-21 has nothing to do with possible 2022 low aero concept. Floor, venturi tunnels, no bargeboards, completely different front and rear wing design. Basically everything what makes car produce downforce is being created completely different way.
As the barge boards are forbidden a flat, high wheelbase concept is simply not possible anymore.
But as Merc mastered the squat like no one else when they went higher a bit, I do not see a reason why they should have any problems with the suspension on a car with a higher rear end.
