F1's governing body on Friday will confirm key rule changes for 2011 and beyond.

For next season, following a meeting of the F1 Commission, the FIA's World Motor Sport Council is rubber-stamping the introduction of adjustable rear wings for overtaking and the return of energy-recovery KERS systems.

The rear wings will be 'switched on' when a car is within 1 second of his adversary and then triggered by the driver.

Also being agreed upon on Friday is the radical new 1.6 litre, four-cylinder engine formula for 2013, featuring fuel restrictions and the doubling of KERS power.
