F1 team have been told that reactive ride system innovated by Lotus F1 team has been banned for 2012 F1. Reigning Champions Red Bull Racing reports that they are not rush to build up their own reactive ride system.

Lotus expected to take a march on its competitors with the concept that regulates ride height under braking. But Reports have confirmed that a note was sent from the FIA to all teams on Friday evening indicating that the governing body was no longer pleased the idea – which regulates ride height under braking – was still legal.

Williams chief operations engineer Mark Gillan said that FIA ban was first broken on The Flying Lap webcast, and he added Friday night received a note from the governing body shortly before going on air notifying him of the move.

“The FIA has just banned that particular type of system,” he said.

Speaking about Williams’ efforts on the device, Gillan said: “We have been investigating that type of system for a while. It obviously has an impact on the aero platform of the car, [and] anything that gets the front ride height lower is beneficial from an aerodynamic perspective.”reaction to the FIA on that.”

Stefano Domenicali, Ferrari team principal had said at his team’s Wrooom media event in Italy last week that he was awaiting a response from the governing body on its legality.

“What you are talking about, is more related to having stability under braking. It is a system that I know there have been some documents in writing between the FIA and the teams. He added.

“It’s like all of these things, it’s about how they work and how they are integrated in the car,” Horner told Autosport. “Things have to work as a package rather than as individual components. It appears to be an interesting concept but I’m the wrong person to be commenting on it. When asked if he thought it was legal, he said: “I haven’t had that close a look at it. That’s more a question for [F1 race director] Charlie Whiting.”
