F1’s 2017 regulation changes delayed

According to reports, the F1 Commission and F1 Strategy Groups met at Biggin Hill to approve the proposed 2017 changes to Formula 1.

It does seem the chassis and tire regulations will go ahead despite some attempts at preventing them and even some teams keen to tweak the rules.

The power unit changes were to include engine cost, availability of supply, engine sound and performance convergence of F1 engines but it seems that, according to Motorsport’s Jonathan Noble, there wasn’t a quorum in the F1 Commission group to pass the engine changes.

The lack of a quorum means that an E-vote later this week is set to take place to approve the changes. The engine issues are very touchy regarding performance convergence, cost and supply. It will be interesting to see where they land on the matter.

In all, the changes to the car are set to move forward while the engine changes are still having trouble but they until Saturday to agree and vote.
