FIA releases new directives after Ferrari story

June 4, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

On Thursday, the FIA ​​released several new technical directives to tighten the interpretation of rules regarding oil consumption and ERS power management.

It is believed that these directives were the first result of a confidential agreement between the FIA ​​and Ferrari, which was concluded as a result of the investigation of the case on compliance with the regulations of the power plants of Scuderia. Among other things, as part of the agreements reached, the Italian team committed itself to help the federation develop measures to monitor compliance with technical regulations.

Technical Directive 0018/20 relates to the updated IVT sensor, which measures the distribution of electrical power recovered by the ERS system. At the first races of the season, the updated sensors will be on the machines of the three best teams of the championship following the results of last season – Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull. As the production of sensors increases, they will be installed on machines of other teams.

Technical Directive 0019/20 aims to ensure compliance with oil consumption of not more than 0.3 liters per 100 kilometers. The document details new measurement and sealing procedures in case the FIA ​​wishes to physically measure the amount of oil in the engine.
