FIA issues technical directive to clamp down on oil burning

FIA issues technical directive to clamp down on oil burning

The FIA have released a pair of new Formula 1 technical directives, the documents believed to be a result of the Ferrari-FIA agreement following an investigation into the team's 2019 power unit.

Towards the end of the 2019 season, Ferrari were the subject of an FIA investigation, the resulting 'non-disclosure' agreement seeing protests from multiple teams.

The FIA clarified they could not 100% prove regulations had been broken, and so Ferrari "agreed to a number of technical commitments that will improve the monitoring of all Formula 1 power units for forthcoming championship seasons".

According to The-Race, technical directive 0018/20 concerns an update to the IVT sensor. This measures the electrical power distribution of energy gathered by the ERS systems.

While the updated sensors will be run by Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull in the opening races of 2020, other teams will be instructed to fit the updated part as and when they become available.

The second directive relates directly to oil burning, a practice that Ferrari were thought to be maximising previously.

The directive, 0019/20, details regulations to ensure that the limit of 0.3 litres/100km of oil consumption is adhered to, and permits the FIA to take a physical measurement if required.

Brawn: More European rounds possible 'if we can't have the overseas or flyaway races'

Leclerc: Sim racing good for 'mental strength' but it's 'not the same' as reality
