    Brilliant setup, and legal too. Mercedes always keeps a few new design advantages up their sleeve to stay just ahead of everyone else. They are a smart team.

    Exactly.

    The rules are pretty clear:

    10.2.2 Any powered device which is capable of altering the configuration or affecting the performance of any part of any suspension system is forbidden.

    10.2.3 No adjustment may be made to any suspension system while the car is in motion.
