The FIA has agreed a series of F1 rules changes for 2020 and 2021 in response to the “crisis” instigated by the delayed start to the season.
A sensational episode on Haas which appears in the new series of Netflix’s Drive to Survive only part of last year’s disastrous season for the team, according to Kevin Magnussen.
The chequered flag will officially end Formula 1 races in 2020 in one of several rules tweaks announced for next season.
F1 drivers could get more lenient penalties for jumping the start of races or failing to stop at the weigh bridge under new rules introduced for the 2020 season.
FIA president Jean Todt has given his backing to a proposal to test ‘qualifying races’ at a limited number of F1 rounds in 2020.
F1 is unlikely to feature two mandatory pit stops in 2020 but teams could face new restrictions on which tyres they can use in practice.
Team principals criticised plans introduce penalty ballast. Alfa Romeo’s Frederic Vasseur said it would be “even worse” than the current grid penalties.
F1 could trial a new race weekend format at some rounds in 2020 but contrary to reports teams have not agreed to scrap qualifying sessions.
Formula 1 will allow teams to use more MGU-Ks next season after Renault requested the change in exchange for approving an increase in the number of races.
Teams have waived their right to dispute the cost cap, with a ‘soft’ cap coming as early as 2020.
Formula 1 will introduce a new tyre specification for the 2021 season including a switch to 18-inch wheels and narrower front tyres.
