Electronic rule changes in F1
The FIA World Motor Sport Council has voted to allow radio signals to pass backwards and forwards from cars to pits in the course of races.
Electronically-controlled power steering systems are not going to be allowed.
Amongst the other ideas voted through by the World Council are a new side load crash test for the rear of the car, increasing the strength of wheel tethers, the size of the mirrors and the size of the rear lights.
