Nico Rosberg, Mercedes, Silverstone, 2014The FIA’s technical delegate has confirmed that no cars are running a Front to Rear Inter-Connected suspension system at the Hockenheimring this weekend.

The sport’s governing body had warned teams ahead of the race it may consider the devices illegal.

Following preliminary scrutineering at the Hockenheimring today FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer said in a statement: “I can confirm that no car is fitted with a front to rear linked suspension system of any sort.”

Sebastian Vettel said it might not be clear until after the next race whether the removal of FRIC had any effect: “I hope it brings the field closer to Mercedes but it’s difficult to say.”

“All of the teams have been playing with it to some extent. How much it has an impact? I think it has to be seen this weekend and also probably next week in Hungary. After those two races I think you can have another judgement.”
