    Am I missing something or are the front control arms all mounted above the wheel centreline?

    It's to get the front of the body up as high as possible to get maximum airflow to the tea-tray splitter and floor.

    The travel is so small that most of the suspension comes from the tyre sidewall so geometry issues that would show up over a long sweep aren't all that relevant.
