Formula One didn’t have the most thrilling of seasons last year and as such, radical new rules and regulations for 2017 were proposed in the hope of making F1 not only cool again but also much more exciting.
Well after all the hype it seems like not a lot is changing. After another meeting between the teams and Pirelli on Tuesday, they STILL haven’t reached an agreement on F1’s future.
Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Felipe Massa, Valtteri Bottas, Daniil Kvyat and Kimi Raikkonen (yes, even Kimi Raikkonen) showed up to discuss what F1 is going to be like this time next year, alongside F1 big cheeses Bernie Ecclestone, Jean Todt, Ron Dennis and Toto Wolff.
As well as the discussion of new 2017 aero, it is understood that the majority of drivers want to see Pirelli ditch their ‘designed-to-degrade’ tyres in the hope of bringing back flat-out racing.
The changes will be pushed back to 2018 if things can’t be decided by the March 1st deadline. The clock is ticking.
