F1 technical revolution could be delayed to 2018

2017 F1 technical revolution
F1’s planned technical revolution for 2017 may be delayed, the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport reports.

Earlier, the sport appeared collectively determined to react to dwindling audiences by speeding up the cars to the tune of 5-6 seconds per lap by 2017.

But correspondent Michael Schmidt reports that there are concerns that F1 is rushing into changes that should actually be thought through more carefully.

The report said the matter will be discussed by technical directors during a meeting on August 18, and that one option is to delay the changes until 2018.

“It is a big job to get the concept right and make it into a set of regulations by the end of February 2016,” Williams’ highly experienced Pat Symonds said.

“I think 2017 is a very ambitious target. There is not much time,” he added. (GMM)
