    Default F1 Radio clamp down 2015

    Ack. This looks like a hairball to implement and enforce. The lack of fuel usage and fuel saving communication is troublesome. I can see cars not finishing due to fuel problems. I'm not sure I like the micromanagement of the F1 management these days.

    New 2015 F1 Radio rules:

    Messages not permitted (either by radio or pit board)

    Sector time detail of a competitor and where a competitor is faster or slower
    Adjustment of power unit settings
    Adjustment of power unit setting to de-rate the systems
    Adjustment of gearbox settings
    Learning of gears of the gearbox (will only be enforced from the Japanese GP onwards)
    Balancing the SOC or adjusting for performance
    Information on fuel flow settings (except if requested to do so by race control)
    Information on level of fuel saving needed
    Information on tire pressures or temperatures (will only be enforced from the Japanese GP onwards)
    Information on differential settings
    Start maps related to clutch position, for race start and pit stops
    Information on clutch maps or settings, (ex. bite point)
    Burnouts prior to race starts
    Information on brake balance or BBW settings
    Warning on brake wear or temperatures (will only be enforced from the Japanese GP onwards)
    Selection of driver default settings (other than in the case of a clearly identified problem with the car)
    Answering a direct question from a driver (ex. “Am I using the right torque map?”)
    Any message that appears to be coded

    Messages permitted (for the avoidance of doubt)

    Acknowledgement that a driver message has been heard
    Lap or sector time detail
    Lap time detail of a competitor
    Gaps to a competitor during a practice session or race
    “Push hard,” “push now,” “you will be racing xx,” or similar
    Helping with warning of traffic during a practice session or race
    Giving the gaps between cars in qualifying so as to better position the car for a clear lap
    Puncture warning
    Tire choice at the next pit stop
    Number of laps a competitor has done on a set of tires during a race
    Tire specification of a competitor
    Indication of a potential problem with a competitor’s car during a race
    Information concerning a competitor’s likely race strategy
    Yellow flags, blue flags, Safety Car deployment or other cautions
    Safety Car window
    Driving breaches by team driver or competitor (ex. missing chicanes, running off track, time penalty will be applied, etc.)
    Notification that DRS is enabled or disabled
    Dealing with a DRS system failure
    Change of front wing position at the next pit stop
    Oil transfer
    Wet track, oil or debris in certain corners
    When to enter the pits
    Reminders to check for white lines, bollards, weighbridge lights when entering or leaving the pits
    Reminders about track limits
    Passing on messages from race control
    Information concerning damage to the car
    Number of laps remaining
    Driver instructions from the team to swap position with other drivers
    Test sequence information during practice sessions (ex. aero-mapping)
    Weather information
    Pit to retire the car

    Another mid season rule change.... What the FRIC!

    This will give some advantage to the drivers that are more knowledgeable about the ins and outs of their cars and why and when things are adjusted. I'm curious to see how Hamilton will adapt to this versus Nico. I think Nico has the upper hand in this department IMO.

    "Push hard" -> Change to map 1
    "Push now" -> Change to map 0

    "Riccardo is on the option" -> your brakes are cold

    No broadcasting about anything that F1's advanced technology allows you to do. How silly.

    Alonso is faster than you in sector 1
    Alonso is catching you in sector 1 (1/10th)
    Alonso is really catching you in sector 1 (2/10ths)
    stop sucking in sector 1 (3/10ths)

    I especially like the ban of 'Any message that appears to be coded'. That one ought to be easy to detect. Jeesh. If I could apply that rule to my wife she would never speak again. Everything she says is code afaik.
