- a front wing of reduced width, down from from 1800mm to 1650mm
- a much shallower rear wing, similar to those used at the high-speed Monza track
- significantly lower noses on the cars to improve safety, although the exact maximum height has still to be determined
- the retention of the moveable rear wing - or drag-reduction system (DRS) - that was introduced this season to make overtaking a little easier
- a restriction on all the extra pieces of bodywork that have sprouted in front of the sidepods of the cars
- a restriction on the design of front-wing endplates, to limit the intricate designs seen today
Anyway, this may well be the proverbial sop to Cerebus which keeps Ferrari in the F1 fold until the renegotiation of the Concorde Agreement in 2012.
Speaking of which...who would really want to buy F1 from CVC in 2011 when they may well lose control of the teams in 2013? Can anyone explain this to me? Please?
