Electronic driver aids set to make Formula One return
THE Federation de L'Automobile (FIA) announced today (Friday) that electronic driver aids could be re-admitted into Formula One as early as the Spanish Grand Prix in April.
The decision, which opens the way for traction control to return to the sport, was made after the World Motor Sport Council met in Monaco.
The FIA confirmed that the Technical Working Group arm of motorsport's world governing body has been requested to recommend a package of new safety measures to be discussed at a further meeting on February 14.
If the recommendations are agreed, unrestricted electronic aids could be introduced ten weeks later at the Barcelona race.
