Todt in favour of 107 per cent ruleFIA president Jean Todt says he is in favour of reintroducing the 107 per cent rule for Formula 1 qualifying.
But the Frenchman admits it is very unlikely to happen this year, and believes the rules will probably make a return in 2011.
All of that happened in the past though, they just got on and did it. It's either that or allow spare cars again.Brogan said:I don't think it's really feasible to use a teammates car these days is it?
The seat is custom made and fitted, not to mention the setup.
Besides, would you want your teammate borrowing your car after they'd just stuffed their own into a wall?
But don't you see, if you can't prepare a car for the main event, then what are you doing there? My proposals may require a few tweaks, but allowing swapping/spare cars will cover the engine failure on the outlap scenario. Either that or relax the engine rule, which would bring other benefits.snowy said:That's as or almost as harsh as the system they have now with anyone who fails to get on track in quali 1 being excluded from the whole event. Damned if I'm giving my teammate my car during quali 1 and risk not making quali two!
That would trigger some teams having to run a third car which is supposed to be part of the concorde agreement on maintaining race numbers?Even when we're down to 18 cars? 16? 14?
