Formula 1 rules for 2011 onwards

  1. No race distance shall be longer than 310km
  2. Each car must complete the race using only its fuel allowance for that race
  3. The fuel allowance for a team spending £50 million or less on development each year shall be 100 litres per car per race
  4. The fuel allowance per car shall reduced by one litre for each £1m (or part thereof) over £50 million spent on development
  5. Fuel shall conform to one of the following standards:
    • European/ British Automotive Fuel Specifications for Diesel Fuel, BS EN 590
    • European/ British Automotive Fuel Specifications for Unleaded Petrol, BS EN 228
    • European/ British Automotive Fuel Specifications for LPG, BS EN 589

Each year for 5 years reduce the base fuel allowance by 5 litres and the base budget by £5 million, then you’d end up with a green and sensible-cost formula 1 by 2015.
