Formula1: simplified rules

Sport Published the 22/02/2010

FOTA (Formula One Teams Association) has approved the introduction of a new rule for 2010. It states that the first ten cars on the starting grid will have to use the same tyres for the race as they used for the qualifications.

Until now, the rules allowed drivers to use new equipment at the start of the race, on the condition that both tyre types supplied by Bridgestone were used during the Sunday race. This new rule must first be approved by the F1 Commission and by the World Motor Sport Council.
