      Rule Changes in F1 from 2010

      Refuelling banned
      The council has confirmed that refuelling will be banned as of 2010. There have been talks about this change for a while, mostly because it will have a considerable impact for the car's designs. At some circuits fuel consumption is currently as high as 3l per lap, requiring next year's cars to have fuel tanks of approximately 180l, maybe even more. To put this in perspective, most teams currently have tanks of about 90l.


      Increased weight limit
      To reduce the disadvantage for heavier drivers the minimum weight has been increased from 605kg to 620kg.

      Movable aerodynamics
      Budget controlled teams will be allowed to have their front wing adjusted by 10°, a surplus of 4° over the teams that choose to go with the conventional rule set. They will also be allowed to adjust the front wing's incidence any time they find it appropriate - and not limited to twice a lap.

      Full scale windtunnel testing
      The cost-reducing regulation that allows teams only to run 50% scale models in their wind tunnels will be removed for teams complying with the budget limitation

      please add if there is any more

      Since the qualifying will see all drivers on fairly equal fuel loads, I wonder if we'll be seeing the return of the 107% rule. It'd add some fun into qualifying.

      Will be interesting to see ...with reducing fuel loads ,the cars will become faster towards the end of the race...and this will also mean ...faster cars with worn out tires!!!

      An addition rule change that may be implemented is narrower front tyres. Bridgestone says that the aero of 2010 cars suit narrower front tyres better.
