F1 2021 revamp "a step closer" after meeting

Formula 1’s planned 2021 rules overhaul “took a step closer” to reality at a key meeting between the rulemakers and its stakeholders ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Almost one year ago, in Bahrain, F1 presented its first idea for a technical, sporting and financial revolution.

Key personnel from F1’s participating teams and manufacturers were presented with their first look at the full framework, created by championship chiefs and the FIA, at a meeting of the Strategy Group and the F1 Commission in London on Tuesday.

This included new technical and sporting regulations, engine rules, costs, governance and revenue distribution.

There is no comment or confirmation of specifics from either F1 or the FIA, as no voting on the details presented was planned.

However, the meeting is understood to have been a constructive first opportunity for stakeholders to see the proposal in full and has been described as a positive step in the right direction.

No fixed deadline is in place but it had been indicated by multiple team bosses prior to the meeting that a final framework would not be in place until May or June.

F1’s official website described its 2021 aim as “a new chapter in its illustrious history” and claimed that “the championship took a step closer to making that happen from 2021 onwards” as a result of Tuesday’s meeting.

It said the target was to “create great action and bring the cars closer together, make the drivers the heroes and make the business more sustainable”.

At the Australian Grand Prix two weeks ago, FIA president Jean Todt had described cost-cap plans as “quite well advanced” and claimed engine regulations had been “sent to the teams a few days ago”.

F1 CEO Chase Carey said in the same press conference that the rulemakers had “made good headway”.
