Formula 1 rules to experience another overhaul next season

Formula 1® is set for more changes in 2015 with the governing body looking to make the racing even more exciting for fans at the circuit and for television audiences worldwide.

Teams have been working closely with Formula One Management (FOM) and the FIA on a range of ideas, with many being recently ratified by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

The most hotly debated has been the introduction of standing restarts from next season, with many drivers and key figures raising concerns over safety of the concept.
