The FIA hopes to implement a yellow flag speed limit in light of Jules Bianchi’s crash at the Japanese Grand Prix after an initial investigation found speed was a major factor.
The Frenchman lost control of his car whilst under double-waved yellows for an earlier accident involving Adrian Sutil. As he hit a wet patch off the racing line, he over-corrected and veered off the circuit and into a recovery vehicle.
The governing body hopes a speed limit, or more likely a delta time drivers must adhere to, could go some way to making it safer whilst marshals and recovery trucks are on circuit.
“There are some things to learn and we want to engage with all teams and drivers to make sure we come up with good, sound and well thought through ideas,” said Charlie Whiting.
“It is better to try to put in place a system where it is much clearer to everybody how much we think cars should slow down in similar circumstances.
“That is what we are working on, starting tomorrow morning, with a meeting with all the teams to discuss exactly that.
“We want a way of trying to impose a speed limit – it probably won’t be a speed limit as such, but there will be a way of controlling speed with complete certainty and complete clarity.”
