A Starting in the 2019 season, fans will be able to see the cars of the F1 delivering their full potential during races. The reason? The Strategy Group and the Category Commission confirmed that the fuel limit will be increased and consequently the pilots will not have the need to lift the foot of the accelerator to save fuel.
The agreement reached will allow increasing the amount of fuel in the races, which will go from 105 to 110 kilograms with the aim of using the engine "at maximum power" and "at all times".
In addition, it was decided to separate the minimum weight of the car from the driver and all competitors will be required to wear biometric gloves to “increase safety” and “facilitate the rescue of the medical car”.
The meeting in which they were present Jean TodtThe president of the International Automobile Federation (FIA); Y Chase carey, CEO of the F-1, also served to broaden the debate on possible aerodynamic changes for the next tournament. The parties hope to reach an agreement at the end of this month, once the report that the FIA is carrying out in collaboration with the teams is finished.
On the other hand, the governing body presented its proposal for the regulations of the power unit from 2021. The idea is to continue using the current 1.6-liter V6 turbo hybrid engines, although eliminating the exhaust energy recovery system called MGU-H.
This device, complex and expensive to develop, is connected to the turbocharger of the impeller and converts the thermal energy of the exhaust gases into electrical energy that propels the car.
"There will now be a meeting with the manufacturers of the current and potential power units to discuss other details with a view to finalizing the regulations at the end of May," stated an FIA source
