The Formula 1 Strategy Group and the Formula 1 Commission met today, 17th April, at the FIA headquarters in Paris, in the presence of Jean Todt, FIA President, and Chase Carey, Chief Executive Officer of Formula 1.

Positive and constructive discussions were held regarding the future of Formula 1.

Firstly, regarding technical regulations for the 2019 season, the following changes were agreed, subject to World Motor Sport Council approval:

• Increase the fuel allowance for the race from 105 to 110 kg, in order to be able to use the engine at full power at all times

• Separate the weight of the car from that of the driver

• Require all drivers to wear biometric gloves to increase safety and facilitate medical rescue.

Discussions will continue on proposals relating to aerodynamics, with a view to taking a decision by the end of April, once research being conducted by the FIA, in consultation with the teams, has been concluded.

Secondly, the FIA presented its proposals for the 2021 power unit regulations

• 1.6 litre engine

• V6 Turbo Hybrid

• Deletion of MGU-H exhaust energy recovery.

The FIA Technical Department will now meet with current and potential power unit manufacturers to discuss in more detail, with a view to concluding the 2021 regulations by the end of May.
