Active Suspension

Active suspension :

Active suspension in F1 is a mechanical system that actively adjusts the stiffness and position of the suspension connection to each wheel individually.

This adjusts the ride height of the car to maintain the aerodynamically optimum position relative to the unique conditions at each part of the circuit.

Active suspension concepts were first introduced in 1983 but it was not until ten years later that it was at its optimum. And then baned in before the start of the 1994 season to curb the reliance on driver aids. has a great article explaining active suspension in detail – here
