More drivers, extra tyres for first practice
12 December 2013 – More drivers and extra tyres will be permitted during the opening practice session of each Grand Prix weekend from the 2014 Formula 1 season.
Replacing the previous limit of two, teams are now allowed to run four drivers in FP1, paving the way for youngsters to be given more opportunities.
Pirelli is also set to supply an extra set of its harder Prime compound for use during the first half an hour of the session before being handed back.
Aside from the new practice allowances, the FIA has also clarified the subject of permanent numbers, which must be visible from the front of each car as well as placed on each driver's helmet.
Meanwhile, a driver may be given the opportunity to give back any advantage he gained by leaving the track, at the discretion of the Race Director.
The new penalty points system, first outlined in June, has also been officially approved.
