I sincerely hope this proposal is agreed upon!

"Freeing up of all driver aids" - doesn't sounds too good on the other hand...

Was reading this earlier, is some interesting stuff. Does seem to be a lot of rule changes / updates etc at the moment and lots and lots of chopping and changing including some things that have already been released and now changed again!

Just getting rid of all the barge boards etc could fulfill the teams and FIA's desire for less downforce and more on track action. Its all that crap the teams design to redirect the airflow back to the wings.

It is interesting to see that the current 2.4 litre V8's are a pure wase of money, as the FIA already has plans to repace them. On itself, I agree that Formula 1 should concentrate itself on fuel efficient engines. But I don't really agree with the way the FIA wants to implent this.

And I don't understand why drivers aids will be re-introduced. From that point of view, the future ban on these aids are just a throw away of knowledge.

I don't understand this statement.Most money is spent on development,and over the next three years they'll be very little.

I don't like this either.Hopefully the racing in the intervening years will be so good that the FIA will change their minds.

We should at least try to savour the next three years.

The introduction of the V8's increased the costs significantly. But for what? From 2007 the engines will be 'freezed' and replaced by 2011. It would had been a lot cheaper to keep the V10's.

I agree,but you can't blame the FIA for that one.The FIA gave the manufacturers the choice of producing a new V8 (on grounds of safety) or using a restricted V10 like the one used this season by STR.And now we have restricted V8s.So it's an own goal for the manufacturers really.

You can't blame the manufactures for the introduction of the V8's, as they didn't choose voluntary. And I disagree that a reduction of engine power was necessary.

Do you really think the manufactures would have chosen the V8's, if the FIA didn't obligate them to choose? By the way, I just read in an article that the FIA mandated the V8's after the manufactures didn't want to make a choise.

Hmm, the cornering speeds have increased impressively partly due the introduction of the V8's.
