Full list of F1 decisions taken by FIA WMSC

The full statement from F1's governing body the FIA, following the World Motor Sport Council reunion that took place in Geneva, Switzerland, today (23 June)
The FIA World Motor Sport Council met in Geneva on 23 June, 2010. The following decisions were taken:

FORMULA ONE

Tyres

Pirelli has been selected as the single tyre supplier for the FIA Formula One World Championship for a period of three years, commencing in 2011. The sole supplier will undertake to strictly respect the sporting and technical regulations implemented by the FIA.

'Competitor's staff' FIA Licence

A proposal relating to specific licences for members of staff of competitors entered in the FIA World Championships has been submitted to the Formula One Commission. This is under consideration for implementation in the FIA Formula One World Championship from the start of 2011, with a view to inclusion in other FIA World Championships in the future.

Safety Car

With immediate effect, no car may overtake until it has passed the first safety car line for the first time when the safety car is returning to the pits. However, if the safety car is still deployed at the beginning of the last lap, or is deployed during the last lap, it will enter the pit-lane at the end of the lap and the cars will take the chequered flag as normal without overtaking.

General safety

With immediate effect, any car being driven unnecessarily slowly, erratically, or which is deemed potentially dangerous to other drivers, will be reported to the stewards. This will apply whether any such car is being driven on the track, the pit entry or the pit-lane.

In order to ensure cars are not driven unnecessarily slowly on in-laps during qualifying or reconnaissance laps when the pit exit is opened for the race, drivers must stay below the maximum time set by the FIA between the safety car line after the pit exit and safety car line before the pit entry. The maximum time will be determined by the race director at each event prior to the first day of practice, but may be amended during the event if necessary.

The grid

From 2011, any driver whose best qualifying lap exceeds 107 per cent of the fastest Q1 qualifying time will not be allowed to take part in the race. Under exceptional circumstances, however, which may include setting a suitable lap time in a free practice session, the stewards may permit the car to start the race. Should there be more than one driver accepted in this manner, the grid order will be determined by the stewards.

Driver adjustable bodywork

From 2011, adjustable bodywork may be activated by the driver at any time prior to the start of the race and, for the sole purpose of improving overtaking opportunities during the race, after the driver has completed two laps. The driver may only activate the adjustable bodywork in the race when he has been notified via the control electronics that it is enabled. It will only be enabled if the driver is less than one second behind another at any of the pre-determined positions around each circuit. The system will be disabled the first time the driver uses the brakes after the system has been activated. The FIA may, after consulting all the competitors, adjust the time proximity in order to ensure the purpose of the adjustable bodywork is met.

Aerodynamic influence

With the exception of the parts necessary for the driver adjustable bodywork, any car system, device or procedure which uses driver movement as a means of altering the aerodynamic characteristics of the car is prohibited from 2011.

Weight

From 2011, the minimum weight of the car must not be less than 640kg at all times during the event.

Fuel draining

With immediate effect, if a sample of fuel is required after a practice session the car concerned must have first been driven back to the pits under its own power.

Licences

Based on his career résumé and comparative F1 testing times, the World Council has approved the granting of a four-race probationary super-licence to Chinese driver Ho-Pin Tung.

The Driver adjustable bodywork rule sounds like something out of the new version of Deathrace 2000. All this activate and deactivate stuff sounds crazy.

I agree, all these get out of jail free cards are rubbish. I want to see drivers tackling forces and concentration, not switching superhero aids on and off. KERS is just as bad - unless its energy saving is fed back all the time it's got nothing to do with energy conservation and everything to do with desperate attempts to sex up a classic sport to its detriment.
