FIA Confirms Formula One Rule Changes

F1’s governing body, FIA, confirmed the key rule changes for 2011 and beyond.

Meeting of the F1 Commission, the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council has been agreed to the introduction of adjustable rear wings for overtaking and the return of energy recovery KERS systems for next season and beyond.

The rear wings will be switched on when a car is within 1 second of his adversary and then triggered by the driver. Also they agreed upon the radical new 1.6 litre, four cylinder engine formula for 2013, featuring fuel restrictions and the doubling of KERS power.

Also the engine limit per driver will be 5 engines per driver in 2013 and then reducing to 4 engines in 2014.In 2011, gearboxes must be used for 5 consecutive races instead of 4 as that was for this year, and cars will feature moveable rear wings to boost overtaking.
