According to BBC Sport’s Mr. Benson, the FIA have released a statement outlining a few of the changes the F1 Strategy Group worked on in its meeting on Thursday. Among them is the return of refueling in the series which was banned originally for cost-cutting and safety measures.
The impossible task of pleasing everyone is alive an well as immediate reaction by some fans centered on the notion that returning to refueling is not improving on-track action so much as simply increasing the tactical passing in the pits due to lengthier stops to refuel.
The article also states that louder, more powerful engines and higher revs will return with cars that are five to six seconds faster per lap.
We discussed the Michelin interest in returning as a supplier earlier this week but included in the possible changes is the option each team will have to choose one of four compounds on offer at each race.
What do you think? Make the pit stops more impacting via refueling? Choice of tire for the race instead of being forced to use two compounds? Louder, faster cars? Is this the solution?
