FIA to look at tire regulations
There was no major message delivered but the sub-text of the conference was that the FIA was not happy with the increase in cornering speeds in F1. As the FIA has agreed with the F1 teams not to change the chassis rules for the next couple of years, the only obvious way to cut cornering speeds is to change the tire rules.
Mosley did not comment on suggestions that the tires would have to be changed but did admit that the federation is "concerned by the cornering speed levels" which he said are "not reassuring".
