2015 Rule Changes

Some rule changes have been green lighted by the WMSC.

Here’s a quick run down of them

Engines/Power Units
4 per season, unless there are 20 races on the calendar. With a penalty of starting from the back of the grid if use one over that.

Wind tunnel hours reduced from 80 to 65 hours per week, but are allowed two sessions a day. Also only 1 tunnel allowed to be nominated for the entire season.

Lewis back to McLaren?

It sounds a bit mad, but Lewis must still have a home there, after all he grew up inside of McLaren’s camp, and now that Ron is back at the head of the F1 project, it may seem a sensible idea.

Sky F1 are reporting that there are murmurings from the management both sides of the deal.

Would be interesting, and possibly a good move with Honda coming back to Turbo Powered F1 racing with McLaren, which was such a strong pairing last time out, and he could even emulate the great Ayrton Senna in that regards.

Michael Schumacher’s medical notes Stolen

It seems Michael Schumacher’s medical notes have been stolen, and have apparently been put up for sale online.

This just days after the great news that Michael was let out of hospital, and has moved to start his (probably) lengthy recovery in Switzerland.

A statement from Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm read: “For several days stolen documents and data are being offered for sale. The offeror claims them to be the medical file of Michael Schumacher.

The Steward Decision on Daniel Ricciardo

Here’s the complete wording for the stewards decision on banning car 3 at the weekend.

The Stewards verdict in full:

‘Decision Car 3 is excluded from the Race Results.

‘Reason 1) The Technical Delegate reported to the Stewards that Car 3 exceeded the required fuel mass flow of 100kg/h. (Article 5.1.4 of the Formula One Technical Regulations)

‘2) This parameter is outside of the control of the driver, Daniel Ricciardo.
