Mercedes steering device to be banned by FIA from 2021

The innovative steering system introduced by Mercedes for this season will be banned from 2021. Mercedes have been cleared to use the system for 2020 and technical director James Allison hopes it will “bring an advantage during the season”. The Mercedes system allows the driver to alter the ‘toe angle’ of the front wheels – their angle in relation to the longitudinal axis of the car – while he is driving. This would outlaw the push-pull motion of the Mercedes system. Mercedes have declined to explain the exact purposes of the system.
