Ferrari's Diego Ioverno recently announced that a number of teams are in discussions with the FIA about changing strict parc ferme rules, after he said that those rules during the United States Grand Prix sprint weekend may have led to the disqualification of Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc.
“There’s something to be discussed about, when I talk to people who I know who follow racing loosely, they don’t understand, you say to them ‘There’s a sprint race', and they say ‘Well, what’s a sprint race?', we mustn’t assume that everyone gets it.
“I think it some ways, it does confuse people. They understand there’s a grand prix on a Sunday, what’s this other race?
“So, on a broader level, it’s difficult to explain to people why you’re having a race the day before a race.”
