This reports not confirmed, some news says that Formula 1 reduce pit speed to 60kph in 2012.
The World Car Fans reports: latest edition of Italian magazine Autosprint publish that, in advance of the forthcoming 2012 season, the in-race limit will drop from 100 kph to just 60 kph throughout the grand prix calendar.
The 2012 rules currently state that the race limit is 100kph, but that the speed “may be amended by the stewards following a recommendation from the FIA F1 safety delegate”.
Autosprint said FIA president Jean Todt made the decision after reviewing the pit speed limits of other series, including Le Mans, GT1 and NASCAR.
The change, causing visits to the pits to take considerably longer than previously, could have a major impact on race strategy this year, the magazine concluded.
