Wolff sure F1 will agree 2017 reforms
Toto Wolff is confident F1 will ultimately adopt a much faster formula for 2017.

The sport has collectively agreed that the cars of today are turning off fans because they are too slow, so plans to speed up to the tune of 5-6 seconds per lap in 2017 are racing ahead.

But that task has been left to the Strategy Group — the much-maligned cooperation between top teams, the FIA and FOM that according to Bernie Ecclestone usually struggles to decide the date of the next meeting, let alone substantial reforms.

Mercedes’ Wolff, however, told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “We have until February 2016 to vote on it, but I believe that the teams will unanimously agree.

“These new regulations will come,” he insisted.

“The cars will be much faster in 2017,” Wolff promised, “with the drivers taking centre stage. They will once again be fully responsible for the car, without assistance from the pitwall.”
