What can be the reason RP rushed for the rear suspension upgrade when the rules clearly allowed them to modify it without using up any tokens next year? Do they have identified a clear direction for development aligned with new aero update from Mugello or were they covering for possible continued Ferrari protest leading to rule changes?
Could be both, but FIA clarified that teams can take year old parts without token last week again.
I think now that they know the upgrades they brought to mugello works, the new rear suspension will give them more speed, why to wait till next year if you can have an advantage in battle for 3rd place in WCC.
Also they can utilise a token for next years mercedes rear suspension if that is drastically different and worth more speed or in the meantime finetune the package with this supension which will be carried forward next year if next years mercedes suspension remains the same or not worth a token.
