To finish first - first you must finish - but perhaps we should add while obeying the rules to this old dictum. Before the start of a new season the FIA publishes two sets of rules. The first is the Sporting Regulations which currently stands at 54 pages and covers the way a race weekend runs, from which licence you need to the start procedure and possible sanctions should rules be broken. The second, and lengthier tome, is the technical regulations (88 pages), spelling out in minute detail every rule that covers the construction of an F1 car. To save you wading through the whole 142 pages we
Kimi Raikkonen says Formula 1's rules are "a joke" after a controversial weekend at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Raikkonen felt Verstappen had twice contravened a rule that dictates how drivers can defend a position in a race. This happened first at Turn Two, when Verstappen moved back to defend the outside line after Raikkonen had tried to switch his attack from from the inside to the outside. Raikkonen hit the Red Bull and damaged his front wing.
Independent engine companies Ilmor and Cosworth have backed Formula 1's proposed new rules as a potential entry route for new competitors. The pair say it is almost impossible for a new company to compete with the current engine suppliers under the existing rules. Cosworth managing director Bruce Wood said: "The current regulation is beyond any new entrant, technically and for the commercial investment it requires. "The new proposal makes it possible for an independent or existing car company." Cosworth was the last independent engine manufacturer to take part in F1, before
Formula 1 is going to change this year, mainly because of the decision to change aero regulations. Due to the new set of rules, the Formula One cars will be faster and more aggressive than before. However, the chassis is not the only that that will be modified. We expect to see the fin-style engine cover in 2017 and under these covers, some big developments will be seen. F1 decided to get rid of engine token system and with it the limited development, because of which constructors such as Honda couldn’t enhance their vehicle performances. However, new restrictions regarding weight and material
For the 2016 Formula 1 season there is a new tyre compound - the ultra-soft - and new rules governing the use of manufacturer Pirelli's rubber. The intention is to spice up grands prix by creating more strategic variety, but the regulations have even left some of the drivers confused. Autosport drills down into the detail of what's new, and what is and is not allowed. Effectively, yes, because with the new rules, teams/drivers must inform the FIA eight weeks before the start of a European event, and 14 weeks before a non-European race, the ratios of the three compounds they wish to use at that event, after being supplied with the options a week beforehand.
With a little over a month until the 2014 season of the Formula 1 championship starts, there are still a lot of people out there who aren't yet up-to-date to the new rules and regulations that FIA has imposed both on the F1 teams and on the drivers. 33 photos. Let's start with the cars first, as their insides have been so thoroughly re-worked compared to the 2013 season (and any other F1 season, for that matter) that there are very few things remaining to remind engineers of the fact that they are still developing cars for Formula 1.Car-related Rules and Regulations First of all, we

Are these Formula One's most controversial rules? © Getty Images / Red Bull Content Pool. 5 July Written by Chris Parkin.

As the 2018 Formula One season approaches the halfway point, rule changes for the 2019 season are already being agreed – ahead of further major changes to the sport in 2021. Formula One fans have, of course, witnessed good, bad and ugly rules come and go down the years. These dead (but maybe

Formula One (the formula in the name refers to a set of rules to which all participants and cars must comply and was originally and briefly known as Formula A) can trace its roots back to the earliest days of motor racing, and emerged from the buoyant European racing scene of the inter-war years. Plans for a Formula One drivers' championship were discussed in the late 1930s but were shelved with the onset of World War Two. Alberto Ascari, Juan Manuel Fangio and Nina Farina after the British Grand Prix in 1952 In the early 1970s Bernie Ecclestone rearranged the management of Formula One's commercial rights, turning the sport into a billion-dollar global business.
The Formula 1 message boards have recently been abuzz with discussion of the Rosberg/Hamilton collision at Spa 2014. From these discussions it has emerged that many fans are not well acquainted with the rules of racing, or are confused regarding which rules apply to which scenarios. This is not particularly surprising, since the rules of racing are complex, notoriously filled with gray areas, and covered in only a very limited and inexact form by the FIA Sporting Regulations. There is little effort on the part of the sport’s regulators to communicate and clarify these rules for fans and I coul

Formula 1 is changing its engine formula (get it?) for 2021, with louder engines, more driver involvement, and lower costs aiming to attract new fans! So, how do Liberty Media– Formula 1’s new owners- plan to get there from here? To understand that, we need to talk about how the 2021 hybrid engine formula compares to today’s, which has been in effect since 2014. To do that, we need to speak the same language, so I’m including a glossary of terms, below, with a bit of inspiration from iAtty at r/formula1. Formula 1 Terminology.

Formula 1 is gearing up for the start of a bold new era in 2017 when a major revamp of aero regulations is set to deliver faster laptimes, meaner-looking cars and a better spectacle. But it would be wrong to think that the only changes coming for the season ahead are on the chassis front, because underneath the fin-style engine covers that are expected this year will be some big developments too. Further the rules have added dimensional restrictions to the crankshaft bearings, limiting the compression ratio of the cylinders (no higher than 18.0) and limiting coating thickness for Gold, Platinum, Ruthenium, Iridium and Rhenium to 0.035mm.
The Formula One rulebook has had more editions than the Guinness Book of Records. Not a year goes by without something being tweaked, fiddled with or completely changed. The 2014 season saw some of the most sweeping rule changes in the sport's history, and Autosport reports that changes to the noses are already in the pipeline for next year. They'll apparently be less ugly. But what else needs a fix? Here are five rule changes which would make 2015 a much happier season. No More Double Points. 1 of 5.

Formula 1 teams may be far from unified about planned rule changes coming for 2017, but one way or the other the sport will finalise its revamp at a meeting later on Tuesday. Bernie Ecclestone, FIA president Jean Todt and F1 team chiefs will get together at Biggin Hill in London later today to sign off a raft of changes for next year aimed at reinvigorating the sport and making it more competitive. But while the main focus has been on an aerodynamic and tyre overhaul for next year – aimed at making cars up to five seconds per lap quicker – they are not the only significant items due to be disc
Since its formal and permanent re-introduction to the F1 rules in 1993, the Safety Car (SC) has played an increasingly prominent and important role in the sport. Last season set a record for the total number of SC deployments in one season, with 40 per cent more than the next highest season (2008). In total, eight per cent of the season’s laps were completed behind the Safety Car in 2010. What changes for 2011?

Formula 1 2017 cars: From faster cars to fitter drivers, we wave the green flag on Formula 1 2017 and chart the length and breadth of its explosive new rules. Formula One has swapped its slim-fast diet for fat-and-faster, with proper muscle cars that pack a tonne of downforce. In 2016 we said goodbye to Jenson Button, but there are a couple of new faces in 2017. They’ll be downing raw egg yolks and hitting the gym to cope with the increased cornering speeds in time for the first grand prix in Melbourne on 26 March. The cars are expected to be up to five seconds a lap quicker, which is the same as swapping a Sauber for a Mercedes. "But how?", we hear you cry.
Formula 1 is on a perpetual quest to increase overtaking, and therefore excitement. Not everyone agrees the new rules will do that, but we’ll know soon enough. With opening day just a month off, teams are revealing their new cars and gathering in Barcelona for pre-season testing. The 2017 rules represent the opposite approach, allowing huge amounts of downforce and grip to increase cornering speed. “F1 tracks typically feature many more corners than long straights,” says Holger Babinsky, who studies racing aerodynamics at Cambridge University. “Cornering speed is considerably more important than top straight line speed to achieve the shortest time around a track.”
The rules were approved amid skepticism about the benefits of moving away from the previous qualifying format that had proved popular. The FIA has confirmed the new regulations for Formula 1's elimination qualifying, after the rules cleared the final approval for introduction on Thursday.

It came despite concerns that Ferrari could opt to block the change, amid its skepticism about the benefits of moving away from the previous qualifying format that had proved popular.

Formula 1’s plans to revamp the sporting regulations for the 2016 season has been rejected according to sources obtained by Autosport. The revamp, which would have seen wider tyres, more aggressive bodywork and wider cars for the 2016 season has been voted against.
