New Race Inclusions
The 2020 season see’s two new track additions, in Hanoi, Vietnam and Zandvoort in the Netherlands. This will be the first time ever that a race is held in Vietnam and will be the first time in 35 years that a Netherlands race takes place.
The 2020 F1 driver line-ups
What new rules can we expect in 2020?
Chequered flag returns
The classic chequered flag is making a return to Formula 1 after a glitch experienced at last year’s Japanese Grand Prix saw the chequered light malfunction. I think we can all appreciate the flag making it’s comeback.
Less testing necessary
For 2020, pre-season testing has been reduced from eight days of running to six. There will also be no mid-season testing.
Longer curfews implemented
A mandatory crew curfew has been implemented, meaning mechanic teams will be able to enjoy an extra bit of rest as they’ll be forbidden from working on their cars for an extra hour on both Thursday and Friday of race weekends. Teams are only allowed to break curfew twice in one season.
Less fuel outside the tank
The 2020 Technical Regulations limit the amount of fuel allowed to course around the car outside of the fuel survival cell to just 250ml – down from two litres in 2019 – all of which should be used for “the normal running of the engine”, according to the regs. That’s to deter teams from seeking any potential benefit to be had from keeping large amounts of fuel outside of the tank.
Shark fins are in
Teams will all have to create a small plate on the engine cover of their cars – similar to McLaren’s early-2019 wedge on the MCL34 – with this ‘shark fin’ set to house the drivers’ numbers, making it easier for fans to distinguish between each team's two machines.
