Looks like Ross Brawn is taking his job seriously regarding 2021.
It’s the dawn of a new era for Formula 1 in 2021, with a complete overhaul of the championship’s sporting, technical and financial regulations on the way. As part of this revamp, F1 motorsport boss Ross Brawn says there will also be tweaks to the way the sport is governed to allow the FIA and F1 to make changes to the rules more quickly if a team has found a loophole.
As it stands, all ten teams have to agree to a change in the rules if made during the season. F1 and the FIA have been working hard to break their own rules, set to come into force in 2021, in a bid to close off any loopholes. But if any remain, and a team exploits one, under the current rules, any change to the regulations would have to wait until after the season ends. This won’t be the case from 2021.
"The governance in the past has been the teams have to all agree to make a change. We’re pushing through governance where we can make changes much more on short notice than at the present time,” said Brawn.
