These guidelines were agreed upon by Federation International Automobile chairperson Max Mosely and the remainder of the team representatives during a meeting in December of 2008. I didn’t pay attention to what these changes are the first occasion when it was talked about. Be that as it may, after seeing all the cars for this season, it made me peruse through the net in search of these new guidelines. I also saw that a few races were scrapped and others were included.
So beneath are the changes watchers will see once Formula One race season starts on March 27.
– Though there are as yet 17 races in the calendar, the Canadian and French Grand Prix has been dropped. Abu Dhabi is the new race scene.
– Force India shall utilize Mercedes engines in their cars this season. The team utilized Ferrari engines previously. Be that as it may, they consented to a technical partnership arrangement with McLaren Mercedes subsequently the transfer.
– Martin Whitmarsh, McLaren’s head operating official replaces Ron Dennis as McLaren Formula 1 racing team’s top person. The two men have been working as a tandem even before Dennis chose to stop McLaren to manage different projects of the McLaren Group. Dennis will, in any case, be watching the races however not as frequently as in the past.
The object is to give the driver more chances to overtake during a race by increasing mechanical grasp while decreasing downforce created by the leading car’s aerodynamics.
– Slick tires make its comeback with section tires replaced.
– KERS or Kinetic Energy Recovery System may be utilized optionally in the cars for this season. What a KERS unit does is it stores kinetic vitality delivered by the heat emitted during braking and stores it. The driver can then utilize the put-away vitality with a flick of a change to give the car extra power. The standards, however, limit the unit to releasing a maximum of 80 torque for seven seconds each lap.
Other standard changes include the ban on testing during the season. All in-season testing shall be performed during the open Friday practice sessions on race day ends of the week.
– Drivers must utilize the same engines for three continuous race ends of the week, with each driver in a team having eight. To improve an engine’s durability, rev breaking point was decreased to 18,000 from the past 19,000.
