F1 2016/17 Rule Proposals

Recommended Posts

Some of these pretty controversial:

 

  • Overall aims to make cars 5-6 seconds faster
  • Mid race refuelling reintroduced but keeping max fuel flow & allowance and still aiming for 3sec pitstops...
  • Free choice of 2x dry tyre compounds during a race weekend (Pirelli really not happy about the safety of this)
  • 30-50kg weight reduction on cars
  • Reduce back to 6-speed gearbox, increase revs
  • 1000bhp power unit
  • Increased noise
  • More aggressive looks (increased rear tyre size, wider front and rear wings, double end plates)
  • Fewer driver aids, particularly at the start using their own clutch rather than software
  • Future considerations on race weekend format
  • Possibility of customer cars

 

Thoughts?

All of these are good for the sport. Don't know about refueling personally, adds an added level of risk to the pit crew, which already has a ton of risks.

The cars are already there, just dig them up from the 80s. ;)

I wouldn't want to see re-fueling back; even with world class mechanics with 100s of hours of training there is always the possibility of something going wrong - such as a driver being released before the hose has been detached; it's happened before. I do like the idea of reducing start aids though; it should be down to the drivers ability to manage the clutch / revs from the line and not helped by a computer.

      Was today the last straw that means Mercedes really need to control their drivers in the last half of the season? That first lap crash could have been the end of the race for both of them.
       
      It is great that they've been allowed to race so far, but it's going to turn very nasty if it's not managed soon.

      Early start to the thread as a couple of the previous winners are using their winnings for 2014 (and I don't want to forget), plus most of the teams have sorted their lineups now!
      As always, we'll fill from the top teams downwards based on the 2013 constructors' finishing order due to the large number of driver movements.
       
      Total Prize Pool - £180
      Prizes to be paid out for:
      £100 1st Place
      £ 45 2nd Place
      £ 15 3rd Place
      And of course some random prizes so those with poor drivers have the chance of winning something:
      £ 5 Most DNFs by the end of the season
      £ 5 First to cause a Safety Car to be deployed - Bottas
      £ 5 First driver to be replaced mid-season either permanently or temporarily for qualifying/race (practice sessions do not count)
      £ 5 First engine failure during a race - Hamilton

      Once again it will be £10 to enter.

      All winnings to be paid out after the final GP of the season, ALL money entered gets paid back out to the winners. The more that enter, the bigger the prizes.

      Good luck and have fun!

      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!
