LONDON, England - The controversial 'Fric' suspension has been officially banned by F1's governing body.

A controversy about the 'front and rear interconnected' suspension layout came to a head before the 2014 German GP in Hockenheim, when the FIA flagged the potential illegality of the technology.


In the end, every team using 'Fric' agreed to remove the systems voluntarily in Germany and also Hungary.

In August 2014, Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reports that Fric has been officially banned, effective immediately ahead of the weekend's 2014 Belgian GP.

The decision follows a meeting between team technical bosses and the FIA's Charlie Whiting.
