The Earth Is Round And Other Big Decisions From The Formula One Strategy Group


In the week they had off between the Spanish Grand Prix and Monaco Grand Prix, Formula One’s notoriously indecisive and/or ineffective Strategy Group met to decide the changes they would make in imminent future of the sport. Among the changes they decided were to allow refueling in 2017 – a practice abandoned in 2009 after the global economy made it a financial hindrance [but now that the global economy has rebounded, it’s okay to spend wads of cash, Mr. Burns style], a proposal for wider tires from Pirelli as they fended off a challenge from Michelin to be the official tire supplier for F1 and no fifth engine allowance for the season – sealing Red Bull’s penalty fate for the remainder of the season while setting up the perfect soap opera drama with Audi/VW for 2016.

The 2015 Formula One season continues with the Monaco Grand Prix in Monaco at 5 a.m. [PDT] on NBCSN on May 24, 2015.
