Even most of the road cars have independent front and rear suspension, so I would be surprised if the f1 cars did not have them. I m pretty sure they have independent suspension.

Yes, they do. Each wheel is its own set of steering arms/tie rods, wishbones, struts, push/pullrods, etc. These push/pullrods are routed into the chassis onto a bell crank setup which actuates a damper (or several dampers). These dampers in the front of the car are located inside the monocoque (just over the front axle) and are mounted directly to the gearbox (as are most of the other suspension components) in the rear. This setup makes the engine and gearbox stressed members of the chassis construction (look at Martin Brundle's accident at Australia 1996 to see what happens when the stress applied to the rear end is too great). The two half-shafts also run out to the rear wheels at 90 degrees relative to the gearbox.
