2016 FIA F1 World Championship calendar

The FIA concluded its World Motor Sport Council meeting in Mexico City. The meeting was held as part of the FIA Sport Conference 2015.

The WMSC has approved the rule adjustments proposed by the F1 Strategy Group and approved by the F1 Commission. These are:

  • The simplification of the power unit penalties, ensuring that the most a driver can be penalised is to be demoted to the rear of the grid – this will eliminate penalties during the race for these infractions.

  • New power unit manufacturers to F1 will receive an extra power unit for each driver to use throughout Grands Prix for the season, bringing the total to five – one more than the existing power unit suppliers. This will be applied retrospectively to Honda.

These changes to the sporting regulations will come into force with immediate effect.

The provisional calendar for the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship was approved:
