Renault R25 - ride height sensors 09 October 2005

During practice in Japan Renault mounted laser sensors under the front suspension's lower-wishbone V-mounting to measure ride-height variation throughout the lap. This allowed them to measure how nervous the car was with different set-ups. The more constant the ride height (signifying less pitching and diving under acceleration and braking) the better the set-up. A valuable tool at a circuit as complex and with such varied corners as Suzuka.
