MN’S sis­ter ti­tle learned last week that FIA race di­rec­tor Char­lie Whit­ing has is­sued a clam­p­down on trick new sys­tems that aim to ‘preload’ a driv­ers’ start­ing pro­ce­dure. Fer­rari re­vealed a con­cept for a sys­tem in cor­re­spon­dence with the FIA, which was then re­jected. It is un­clear whether Fer­rari was de­sign­ing the sys­tem it­self, or sim­ply wanted to clar­ify the rules in pub­lic to pre­vent ri­vals us­ing a sim­i­lar one. Teams are for­bid­den to give driv­ers any help with starts, in­clud­ing find­ing the clutch bite point.
