Active suspension in Formula 1 cars led to increased stability and grip, improving overall performance.
The technology automatically adjusted the car's ride height and stiffness, ensuring optimal aerodynamic performance.
Active suspension was initially developed by Lotus, but it was Williams who perfected and dominated with the technology.
The system used hydraulic actuators and hydraulic rams to control the car's suspension, minimizing the effects of bumps on the track.
Active suspension was eventually banned in Formula 1 due to concerns over increasing aerodynamic instability and making the racing less competitive.
