The FIA has agreed to drop planned changes to bodywork in 2014 that was aimed at reducing downforce.
With the new engine regulations taking effect, the bodywork changes were designed to increase the efficiency of the 2014 cars. However, following a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) in Istanbul, the FIA has announced that the current regulations will remain stable.
"Changes made to bodywork design, originally aimed at reducing downforce and drag for increased efficiency, have reverted to 2012 specification," read a statement on the FIA website.
Surely this can't be good news for Merc and Lewis who were hoping to come up with a field beater under the new regs... Mind you if Newey's still around then who's to say he wouldn't be producing the dominant vehicle once more...?http://en.espnf1.com/fia/motorsport/story/97027.html
