FIA delays 2021 F1 regulation deadline
The FIA has deferred the final presentation of the Technical, Sporting and Financial regulations for the FIA Formula 1 World Championship for 2021 and beyond until the end of October 2019.
The delay comes after discussions during the Canadian Grand Prix in Montréal an a meeting in Paris yesterday between the FIA, Formula 1, Team Principals and Technical Directors from the ten teams, the championship’s single tyre supplier, Pirelli and a number of drivers including Lewis Hamilton, Nico Hulkenberg and Alexander Wurz, who is the chairman of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association.
The FIA stated that while its core objectives outlined for the future set of regulations have been defined, ‘in the interests of the sport it was agreed that the best outcome will be achieved by using the extra time for further refinement and additional consultation.’
The rules were due to have been put forward for approval this month.
