Read FIA issues guidelines for F1 tech changes.

The FIA has sent all ten Formula One teams its own interpretation of the rules package it would like to introduce to slow cars and make the sport both safer and more cost effective.

Re: FIA issues guidelines for F1 tech changes.

What's the obsession with specifying the engine configuartion by the FIA. Why limit F1 to V8 configurations, why not allow for forced induction?
The racing will remain processional while the cars are so similar. For God sake can't we get some performance variation from track to track?

They are trying to slow the cars down, forced induction would make them go faster, I think they should keep the V10's and have a rev limiter on them or make them last longer

Re: FIA issues guidelines for F1 tech changes.

I have no problems with the idea of slowing them down and/or changing the formula. My problem is a lack of diversity in design & technical advancement.
