Look to MotoGP for new F1 rules model

F1 should look to the two-wheeled world of MotoGP for a system of simpler rules.

That is the claim of Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne, who said the status quo in formula one is too complex.

"The rules we have in F1 have nothing to do with the rules in MotoGP," he said.

"In the bikes, the manufacturers are treated with great respect, everything is solved together and decisions are made consistently and quickly.

"It's a different approach, a different attitude in trying to change something taking into account the tastes of the public.

"I think when you need a lawyer rather than en engineer to properly interpret the rules, we cannot go on like that," he said.

However, Marchionne said the latest talks about rules - presumably about 2017 and beyond - are making much more sense.

"A year ago I joked that it seemed like our rules were designed by four drunks at a bar. Well, it seems like they have reduced their consumption a little," he smiled.
