Pirelli are to introduce a thinner tyre tread for 2019.

Interesting comment in there -

Extreme tyre management has been a theme of several grands prix this year, with drivers forced to be "completely cruising" at times to keep temperatures under control.

Isn't that only half of the issue? They lift and coast from start to finish to make it on fuel. These tyres won't change that.

The fuel problem is only going to get worse with the wider less efficient wings and deeper DRS that the FIA/FOM are touting for 2018 too.

Does anybody have an overview of the implications and effects of the rules they change?

Autosport included a video, in the article I posted, http://classic.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/139916, that gave an overview.

I had not seen this post BJ, and still can't see the video.

The regulations that the FIA / FOM make never seem to be coordinated, they give the cars an extra fuel allowance to ensure that they don't lift and coast to save fuel during the races. Next rule, make the front wing wider and make the end plates less efficient, i.e. add drag to the car to use up the increased fuel, back to lift and coast. Next rule make the tyres last better so that they can race, but they are lifting and coasting to save fuel anyway.

So who has an idea of the overall effect of what they are doing?
Brawn? Why isn't he doing his job?

Backs up the point about the rule changes being piecemeal and having unintended consequences. The drag and fuel consumption I queried above?

That's good, I could only get it to work in Chrome. Yes, it does back it up.

Mark Hughes from Motorsport Magazine on the 2019 rule changes:

Conclusion: No change to the racing and advantage Mercedes.

https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/o...ould-change-f1

"How effective will it all be? Heres a quote from someone very close to the research behind it: I dont think it will make the racing very different to how it is. But if wed left it, the racing would be much worse than it currently is.
Will it have an effect on the competitive order? Probably not a profound one. But it would seem to make a super-high rake car less feasible in that with a less powerful draw upon the diffuser exit speeding up the flow, the diffuser itself will stall at lower car speeds than it currently does as the ride height increases as the speed comes down. So does that mean anyone that has not followed a high-rake concept over the years might be looking better relative to the rest? What teams have done that? Only one: Mercedes." Mark Hughes

They need to reduce downforce on the body. Its not rocket science

No it’s fluid dynamics, which is far more complicated. Rocket science is relatively simple.
