The German Grand Prix marks the mid-point of the 2014 season, with updates planned for this weekend coming on top of the removal of interconnected suspension (FRIC) from all cars that previously ran it.
Without getting into the politics of the situation, the teams were given less than two weeks' notice to prepare for running without suspension that is hydraulically linked from front to rear.
The timing was fortuitous, coming just before the first day of a two-day test at Silverstone. Some admitted to running without FRIC immediately there.
