FIA Technical crackdown coming this winter

FIA President Max Mosley hinted at Jerez that the recent controversies over advanced electronic systems on Formula 1 cars may be restricted in the course of the winter months. The FIA is worried that electronic brakes balance systems, differentials, and three-dimensional engine mapping have led to developments which mean that the cars are no longer being driven by the drivers "alone and unaided" as the F1 regulations state they should be.

There are also worries about the degree of flexibility which should be allowed in bodywork. Mosley also suggested that there might be a need for the details of the appeals process.
