NEW RULES

As well as the new calendar, the WMSC approved a raft of changes to the F1 rules for 2019 – as exclusively revealed previously by Motorsport.com.

Following approval by F1’s Strategy Group and the F1 Commission, the new rules include:

Other rule changes are:

  • Drivers will now only be allowed to overtake after a safety car period once they have crossed the start-finish line. Previously they had been allowed to do so at a safety car line
  • Teams will now be responsible for initial scrutineering of their cars and must declare that their cars comply with all safety related matters
  • A chequered light panel will be used at the end of the race alongside the traditional flag
  • For 2020, the team personnel curfew will increase from eight to nine hours
