"It will be up to race direction to signal the possibility with a light in the cockpit."

Drivers are told which buttons to press to drive the car, what engine settings to use, they'll have a light on their dashboard telling them when they should attempt to overtake, strategy guys telling them when to pit to change tyres, and race engineers telling them what order to finish in. That's the pinnacle of motor sport for you.

Alan D, you are so damn right.
Instead of racers competing we have electronic circuits, computers in pits, clerks in race control, etc - all affecting race results. Pinnacle phooey.

The pinacle of motorsport does not necessarily mean that it is the pinacle of driving skill. The more emphasis that is put on the driver the less important the car is and that is not really what F1 has been about.

Cheating will be important and as we know Ferrari and Alonso are 1st class at that and now they can hang Massa out to dry aster the 2nd race with no fine.

Wait and see.....the cheating reds will show their true colours
