FIA announces new measures against high costs

FIA announces today new measures ahead of next season with the intention of the WRC teams to reduce its costs as WRC enters to hybrid era.

More specifically, manufacturers are now restricted to use two instead of three engines per season while the hybrid units will be only nine for the cars that entered to score points.

Moreover, teams are allowed to have one hybrid unit and one spare unit in every rally for each of its drivers.

Finally, the drivers and the co-drivers have to carry on board HV 0-gloves when they will face a problem with their hybrid unit as these units are highly voltage.

"The number of engines allowed for each manufacturer has been reduced from three to two, while the use of hybrid units per season (testing not included) for cars entered to score points in the Manufacturers' Championship has been limited to a pool of nine over the course of the season, with one hybrid unit and one spare hybrid allowed in each rally for all other Rally1 cars, to comply with Rally1 cost saving measures," read a statement from the FIA.

"In the technical regulations, there were changes to the Rally1 class to include the increase of the minimum weight of the car by ten kilos in order to limit the costs."

"As part of the High Voltage safety procedures starting in 2022, every Rally1 car must carry on board HV class-0 gloves, which driver and co-driver will be required to wear in an event of an HV issue to ensure a higher level of protection," continued the bulletin from the FIA.

"Rally1 cars will be marked with a "HY" sign in white letters on red background on the front door panels replacing the vehicle number to make it more easily identifiable by marshals and spectators."
