The National - News - - SPORT FOOTBALL -

For­mula One pre­sented a dra­matic over­haul of the sport on Thurs­day with a new car and reg­u­la­tions aimed at pro­duc­ing closer and cheaper com­pe­ti­tion from 2021 as well as more ex­cit­ing and en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly rac­ing. The new tech­ni­cal, sport­ing and fi­nan­cial rules in­clude a bud­get cap and rep­re­sent the fruit of two years of dis­cus­sions be­tween var­i­ous stake­hold­ers. They were ear­lier ap­proved unan­i­mously by the gov­ern­ing FIA’s world mo­tor sport coun­cil, with talks con­tin­u­ing over gov­er­nance and profit shar­ing. “The goal has al­ways been to im­prove the com­pe­ti­tion on the track and at the same time make the sport a health­ier and at­trac­tive busi­ness for all,” said F1 chair­man Chase Carey.
