2007 Formula 1 GP Calender and Regulation Changes
Teams may only use two cars in any one practice session. A nominated third driver or either race driver can use these cars in the session. The two free practice sessions on the first day of practice have been extended from one hour to ninety minutes each.
The single tyre supplier is required to provide identical quantities and specifications of tyres to all teams over a calendar year. It may only provide two specifications of tyre at each Event. The quantity of dry-weather tyres each driver may use at an Event has been increased from seven sets to 14. A maximum of four sets will be available to each driver for the first day of practice and 10 for the remainder of the Event.
The two-race engine regulations will now only apply to the second day of practice and the day of the race.
Engines homologated and used during the last two Events of 2006 must now be used during the 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 seasons.
When the Safety Car is deployed no car is permitted to enter the pits until all are bunched up behind the Safety Car. This is to remove all incentive for cars to be driven quickly back to the pits for refueling when the Safety Car is deployed.
Before the Safety Car returns to the pits any lapped car between cars running on the lead lap must pass those cars and the safety car. It may then proceed around the track to take up position at the back of the line of cars behind the safety car.
Before a race is resumed any lapped car between cars running on the lead lap must pass those cars and the safety car and then proceed around the track to take up position at the back of the line of cars behind the safety car.
The stewards may now impose grid place penalties.
A GPS marshalling system, involving a cockpit light display of flag signals, will be introduced to the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship.

looks like f1 is getting more and more tight....with all these i hope the battle for the c'ship goes 4 way...or more.I think its a good thing to make it only 1 tyre manufacturer...although it should have been a totally new supplier so it can be more competitive.

IMHO in some years time F1 will loose its sheen & will b run like the regular NASCAR event. all wild a$$ess running & muscling their way around the track.
F1 was always the pinnacle of sport which is now being governed to take it back.
the good old days were when the teams were allowed to have a T-car, people stalling their car on the grid & running down the pitlane to board the T-car which mechanics frantically worked on it. would still rate those years better than whats happening right now.

Interesting development there regarding the safety car... should see how single tyre manufacturer would play a part in the future...

Instead of ensuring consistency in decision making from the stewards, the FIA has given the stewards more power than they can handle. Whats next? Full battle armour?!

P.S. danlalan (off topic I think) - Even though it is a done deal, but you need to hold on to your signature till Sunday. Schumi fan here. Actually Schumi should win the final race and Alonso can come-in second. That'll be brilliant for fans of both drivers. No, I don't want Alonso with DNF to his name at the end of the race - I enjoy healthy competition.
