cell have been extended upwards to the rim of the cockpit
and alongside the driver’s head

1st Year in F1: 2014
Rule Changes for 2015

- There will be two in-season two-day tests, down from four
in 2014. Two of the four days in total must be reserved for
young drivers.

- Each driver is restricted to four engines during the season.

- Race Stewards will now be able to hand out 10-second
penalties as well as 5-second for minor infringements.

- Double points will no longer be applied for the season finale.

- In the event of double waved yellow flags, a virtual safety
car system designed to ensure drivers slow sufficiently has
been introduced for 2015. This can be used to neutralize a
race without having to use the safety car itself.

- A driver will be forced to start from the pit lane if any
member of his team, or any relevant equipment, remains on
the starting grid after the 15-second signal has been shown.

- Unsafe releases will be met with an automatic ten-second
stop-and-go penalty for the relevant driver.
