Pushrod on upright
The car is running with a Pushrod On Upright set up, often termed (POU or PROU). Many teams run with this set up, the offset from the pushrod pickup and the king pin axis is a tuneable set up parameter. I have seen F1 set up sheets with figures of 8mm offset.
I had it explained to me by an ex-f1 designer: "When the car turns the outside wheel will drop and inside will rise, this helps grip at low-speed. Its often used in conjunction with Anti-Ackermann suspension (meaning that the outside wheel steers faster than the inside), this can then result in an overall reduction in front-ride-height as you add steering lock."
Oh I see! Thanks, I noticed that abbreviation on several of the threads on this years cars and could not make anything out of it, other than it was something about the suspension/uprights.
