Following news earlier this week that the FIA is set to ban front-rear interconnected suspension (FRIC), F1 technical boss Charlie Whiting today issued a list of other items which may be prohibited in future.

The list includes frontal energy conservation kinematics (FECK), chassis optimisation control knuckles (COCK), baseline orientated low level outer curve kinetics (BOLLOCKS) and passively integrated slip sensors for longitudinal amplitude positionings (PISSFLAPS).

‘Banning these systems is sure to affect our winning pace but we must respect the decisions of the FIA,’ said a Mercedes spokesman. ‘After all, they are a council of united notables and technical superiors.’
