FIA developments since the last approval rating
New rules for 2011
Several rules changes have been made for next year including the following (see the links for further details):
- The ban on team orders has been lifted.
- The 107% rule has been reintroduced, meaning cars that are more than 7% slower than the fastest car in Q1 will not be allowed to start the race.
- Stewards have new powers to punish drivers
- Cars will have adjustable rear wings but drivers will only be able to use them when they are within range of another car they are trying to overtake.
Smaller, more fuel-efficient engines in 2013
From 2013 F1 cars will use 1.6-litre engines with four cylinders. Todt is understood to have played a leading role in getting teams to agree on smaller engine capacities.
