World Motor Sport Council decisions September 21st, 2017

21.09.2017: The meeting began with the FIA President Jean Todt paying special tribute to those affected by the natural disasters occurring in Mexico and Puerto Rico this week

The meeting began with the FIA President Jean Todt paying special tribute to those affected by the natural disasters occurring in Mexico and Puerto Rico this week.



The President, on behalf of the entire FIA, the World Motor Sport Council, and the broader motor sport community offered his support and condolences to those affected by the tragic events, and recognised the presence of the FIA Vice President José Abed, attending on behalf of Mexico despite the devastating earthquake that affected that country’s capital.




The following decisions were taken during the meeting:





FIA Formula One World Championship


A number of amendments to the Sporting and Technical Regulations – including the specifications and testing parameters for the Secondary Roll Structure (‘Halo’), as well as improvements to chassis strength and wheel retention systems – were unanimously approved for the 2018 season. These will be available in the regulations section on FIA.com.



Following a tender process, the World Motor Sport Council approved the selection of Sentronics as the exclusive supplier of Fuel Flow Meters to teams for the 2018 and 2019 championships.






FIA Formula 3 International Championship




After consolidating the positions of FIA Formula 4 and FIA Formula 2, the FIA is currently working on the creation of an FIA F3 International Championship for 2019 in order to consolidate the FIA pyramid structure from Karting to Formula One.



As such, the World Motor Sport Council approved the launch of three calls for expressions of interest regarding the planned FIA F3 International Championship:

    to select a chassis manufacturer
    to select an engine provider
    to designate a promoter – a candidate promoter may also submit a proposal for chassis and engine



The concept of the championship has been defined as follows:

    A grid of 24 cars (eight teams with three cars)
    Nine to ten events, with two races per event
    Single-make engine, chassis and tyres
    Completely new chassis incorporating improved high level safety features
    Engine power output – 350 BHP
    Limited and regulated testing






FIA Formula 3 Regional Championships



The World Motor Sport Council agreed to the launch of an intermediate single-seater category between Formula 4 and Formula 3 International, to be sanctioned by the FIA and run by ASNs as International Series in a similar model to FIA Formula 4.



General championship concept:


    Multiple chassis and engines homologated by the FIA


    Each championship would generally feature a single supply of engines, chassis and tyres – however, ASNs or promoters are free to propose an alternative format


    Approximately 220-240 BHP – production-based engine, potentially turbocharged





FIA Formula 3 World Cup


The World Motor Sport Council approved the recommendation (following a tender process) of Panta for the exclusive supply of fuel in the 2017 FIA Formula 3 World Cup.





FIA Formula 4



Updated Technical Regulations for all homologated F4 cars were approved by the World Motor Sport Council. These amendments include a frontal anti-intrusion panel and an updated rear impact structure, to be retrofitted on existing cars by the teams themselves and for all new manufactured cars.



The safety update kit is designed to significantly improve the compatibility of the front end of the chassis and the rear impact structure. This update will be mandatory for all F4 Championships as from 1 March 2018.





FIA Formula E Championship




The calendar for the 2017-18 FIA Formula E Championship was approved, featuring four historic new events, and the important return to circuit racing in Switzerland on the streets of Zurich for the first time since it was banned in 1955. The updated calendar is:

FIA World Endurance Championship




The World Motor Sport Council offered its full support for the FIA Endurance Commission in its efforts to further strengthen and promote the FIA World Endurance Championship; one of the FIA’s most important assets.



The unique and extended provisional calendar spanning both 2018 and 2019 for the FIA World Endurance Championship was confirmed as follows:



5 May, 2018  WEC 6 Hours of Spa  Belgium

16-17 June, 2018  24 Hours of Le Mans  France

4 May, 2019  WEC 6 Hours of Spa   Belgium

15-16 June, 2019   24 Hours of Le Mans
   


The FIA Endurance Commission was also encouraged to pursue a number of exciting and innovative proposals that it is currently working on, with the aim of enticing new manufacturers to the Championship.



The World Motor Sport Council also agreed to a number of Technical Regulation amendments for 2018 and 2019.


    From 2018, incorporation of the LMP1 Non-Hybrid cars into a single classification with the LMP1 Hybrid cars (while maintaining the current specific technical regulations).



    It is proposed to equalise the lap performances of the best LMP1 Non-Hybrid and Hybrid cars by adjusting the instantaneous fuel flow and fuel consumption per lap for the Non-Hybrid cars. A fuel range advantage for Hybrid cars (one extra lap at Le Mans) will be enforced.


    A technological coefficient between naturally aspirated engines and turbo engines will be implemented in order to open up the field of possible engines for LMP1 Non-Hybrid cars.


    From 2019, a ban on fluidic switches and energy brought to the general aerodynamics of the car – this is in anticipation of potential complex and expensive developments in this area.





FIA GT World Cup


A number of changes to the Sporting Regulations for the 2017 event were validated in a bid to optimise race management and provide greater flexibility in situations such as red flags.



These changes will see more time allowed before and after the races to cater for delays, or unforeseen on-track circumstances. The restart procedure will also be reduced from ten minutes to five minutes at the resumption of racing after a red flag.



The World Motor Sport Council approved the recommendation (following a tender process) of Pirelli as the exclusive tyre supplier for the 2017 FIA GT World Cup.



Panta was also approved for the exclusive supply of fuel.

The introduction of automated gearbox controls for R5 cars has been cancelled, due to the excessive cost of retrofitting on existing homologations.

FIA Safety Commission



A number of amendments were approved by the World Motor Sport Council regarding changes to the Super Licence points table – as well as adjustments to the eligibility of championships and drivers to accumulate points. These changes are in this appendix.



In order to establish a clearer path for drivers around the world to progress from grassroots to World Championships, a new structure for FIA International A Licences – the licence level immediately below the F1 Super Licence – was approved by the World Motor Sport Council. This licencing system will now be based on the same principle of point allocation as the Super Licence system introduced three years ago.



In collaboration with the FIA Circuits Commission, the Safety Commission will implement homologation processes for manufacturers of circuit equipment to allow ASNs and circuits around the world to equip their facilities to an appropriate and tested standard.



This will have the combined effect of improving circuit equipment, making the organisation of safe and efficient motor sport events easier, as well as encouraging equipment manufacturers to achieve the published standards.



As part of the Safety Commission’s work, the World Motor Sport Council reiterated that one of the primary roles of the FIA is to always focus on making motor sport safer.






FIA Commissions



The World Motor Sport Council also decided on the formation of two new strategic commissions that will work across both Sport and Mobility.



The Disability and Accessibility Commission will be created to provide advice on strategies to encourage and facilitate participation in motor sport for people with disabilities.



The Environment and Sustainability Commission will advise on issues relating to environmental performance and sustainability in motor sport and mobility, as well as supporting the achievement of best practice by the FIA and its Member Clubs in relation to relevant criteria measuring environmental performance.



Having gained approval from the World Motor Sport Council, the commissions will now need the approval of the World Council for Automobile Mobility and Tourism.




Next


The next World Motor Sport Council meeting will be held on 6 December in Paris.
