Re: Formula1 2017

The FIA met today to discuss changes for next season

https://www.fia.com/news/fia-announces-world-motor-sport-council-decisions-8

Not much of a change to the stupid grid penalty system though...still the drivers being penalised...

A change to the power unit penalty system was also approved, whereby if a driver incurs a penalty exceeding 15 grid places he will be required to start the race from the back of the starting grid. If more than one driver receives such a penalty they will be arranged at the back of the grid in the order in which the offences were committed.
