COLLISION PENALTY RULES CHANGED

F1 Racing - - INSIDER -

In a bid to elim­i­nate the in­con­sis­ten­cies that have proved con­tro­ver­sial dur­ing re­cent sea­sons, the FIA has re­vised F1’s Sport­ing Reg­u­la­tions so that driv­ers will not be pe­nalised un­less it can be es­tab­lished be­yond doubt who is at fault. Ar­ti­cle 38.2a now says: “It shall be at the dis­cre­tion of the stew­ards to de­cide if any driver in­volved in an in­ci­dent should be pe­nalised. Un­less it is clear to the stew­ards that a driver was wholly or pre­dom­i­nantly to blame for an in­ci­dent, no penalty will be im­posed.”
