Several major changes for next year’s F1 season will see strategies change and evolve from this year's season. To begin with, teams will no longer be allowed to run three cars during practice sessions. Instead, the current one hour Friday practice sessions will be extended to 90 minutes while test and reserve drivers will be able to appear on the track during the weekend to entertain spectators as well as gain crucial test data.

Friday practice sessions won’t have to follow the two-race engine rules either. This means that teams are likely to be driving more on the day because they don’t have to save their engines for the Saturday qualifying and Sunday race. However, teams will be limited to two cars driven by the regular race drivers or nominated third member.

The use of only one tyre manufacturer will see a doubling of the amount of dry weather tyres available, now up to 14 sets per weekend, and a new GPS system is expected that will be used to communicate to drivers as well as monitor their current positions at all times.
