New F1 rules for 2014

Recommended Posts

Guest Booti

Can't decide if the last one is good or not.

Fixed driver numbers I think is wrong. Current system works, but then it doesn't matter as we can't read them anyway.

Cost cap

The principle of a global cost cap has been adopted. The limit will be applied from January 2015.

A working group will be established within the coming days comprising the FIA, representatives of the Commercial Rights Holder and Team representatives.

The objective of the working group will be to have regulations approved by the end of June 2014.

Pirelli Tyre test – Bahrain, 17-19 December, 2013

The F1 Commission agreed to a change to the 2013 Sporting Regulations, on safety grounds, allowing the Formula One tyre supplier to carry out a three-day test in Bahrain from 17-19 December, 2013. All Formula One teams have been invited to take part in the test and six have accepted: Red Bull Racing, Mercedes, Ferrari, McLaren, Force India and Toro Rosso.

Driver numbers

Drivers will be asked to choose their race number, between 2 and 99, for the duration of their career in the FIA Formula One World Championship. Number 1 will be reserved for the current World Champion, should he choose to use it.

If more than one driver choses the same number, priority will be given to the driver who finished highest in the previous year’s championship.

New penalties

The principle of a five-second penalty for minor infringements was agreed. In what form such a penalty will be applied will be discussed with Formula One’s teams in order that a new regulation be introduced for 2014 season.

Points for the last race

Double drivers’ and constructors’ points will be awarded at the final race of the Formula One season in order to maximise focus on the Championship until the end of the campaign.

These changes are immediately applicable, given the mandate assigned to the FIA President at the last World Motor Sport Council meeting, held on 4 December in Paris.

I'm ok with these to be honest.

 

Driver numbers fixed becomes a good marketing tool for the teams/individuals and works well in other sports/racing series.

 

Points for last race is a bit random but makes sense, with the millions available per constructors championship point, it will stop the teams entirely giving up on the season for future development if the last race can change everything.

My biggest problem with the double points is that some circuits suit some teams better than others.

As someone has said online, with the double points you can get as many points for 4th in Abu Dhabi as 1st in any other race.

 

I think i would have preferred to see bonus points at each race for fastest lap or pole position (makes them push the car and tyres at the end and pole would make them come out in Q3 hopefully)

Bernie's now got involved in the double points thing and suggested that either it should be the last 3 races or that the FIA will scrap it in January at the Strategy Group.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
