FIA developments since the last approval rating

2011 F1 calendar ratified

The FIA officially ratified the 2011 F1 calendar which has the most races ever. The addition of the Indian Grand Prix brings the calendar up to 20 rounds.

Competitor licenses

At the FIA General Assembly the International Sporting Code was been updated with a new section explaining how competitor licenses will work:

All those involved in the FIA World Championships are directly subject to the FIA?s jurisdiction. Those who are guilty of conduct contrary to the FIA regulations will be denied access to the areas under the control of the FIA in the events counting towards these championships. The procedure for implementing this system will be examined within the framework of working groups specific to each of the FIA World Championships.

Stewarding in 2010

An early policy of Todt’s was the introduction of representatives with racing experience on the panel of stewards at Grands Prix. Lewis Hamilton said he thought races this year had benefited from less “manipulation”.

Team orders

At the World Motor Sport Council’s hearing into Ferrari’s use of team orders at the German Grand Prix the council decided the rules which ban team orders need to be examined. This will take place next month.

In the meantime Todt has given his view on the team orders debate:

I am not against team orders, but I am against lies. It is necessary to have the honesty to explain ? to account for ? and to say that you did it and why you did it. It is completely unacceptable to apply team orders and then afterwards to ask a whole team to lie.
