Official: 2021 regulations delayed until October

NEWS STORY
13/06/2019

Despite the prospect of a number of teams objecting, it has been confirmed tonight that the deadline for the 2021 regulations has been pushed back to October.

"Following discussions during the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal and a meeting today, 13 June, in Paris between the FIA, Formula 1, Team Principals and Technical Directors from the ten teams, the championship's single tyre supplier and a number of drivers – Lewis Hamilton, Nico Hulkenberg and Alexander Wurz (chairman of the Grand Prix Drivers' Association) - it has been unanimously agreed to defer the final presentation of the Technical, Sporting and Financial regulations for the FIA Formula 1 World Championship for 2021 and beyond until the end of October 2019," said the FIA in a brief statement.

"While the FIA Formula 1 World Championship's key stakeholders feel the core objectives outlined for the future set of regulations of the championship have been defined, in the interests of the sport it was agreed that the best outcome will be achieved by using the extra time for further refinement and additional consultation.

"Furthermore, following today's first meeting featuring the aforementioned stakeholders, a series of additional meetings will be held over the coming months."

It was feared that, ahead of tomorrow's meeting of the World Motor Sport Council, Alfa Romeo, McLaren, Racing Point, Renault and Williams were going to object to the postponement, a move that would have put the sport in a very difficult position, as neither the technical or financial regulations were in a form ready to be agreed upon in time for the original deadline, which is this month.

"Do athletes set the rules for Olympic track? Erm, NO! If that was the case the sprinter who is faster up to 87m would indeed like the 100m race be changed to the 86m sprint...

Forget the guy with the mustache (what's his name??? Oh yeah Who Carey's), the other two we never see/hear from and Ross Brawn making the rules. Where is the FIA in all of this? Have they become the FAA of motorsports contracting out rule making to the commercial entities? Don't they dictate 'the formula'???

F1 gets duller with each year. I've started to watch other forms of motorsports and most, if not all, are by far more entertaining and the racing is simply incredible.

Btw, talking of rules... when will the points be changed now that the Merc's are just running away with championships? A lot like Ferrari in the 00's. Points got changed then because 'one' team kept winning. Another artificial farce likely to happen in the near future.

"What an indictment on the hierarchy!! Mercedes and Ferrari are calling the shots and Liberty have no answer. Toothless tigers. Mercedes will do anything to maintain the status quo and Ferrari are too far behind. F1 is, quite simply, a joke these days. They are failing on all fronts..."
