The FIA have informed teams of their intention to introduce more components which will have a single specification across all Formula One teams, according to reports.
As part of the desire to reduce the costs associated with the sport, Formula One organisers have been looking into methods of introducing uniform parts for the entire F1 grid.
The FIA have already issued calls for a tender of the gearbox cassettes, which the FIA hope will be supplied by one company to all Formula One teams from 2021 onward.
Ross Brawn in particular believes that standardising parts which are not critical to the performance of the car could prove to be a big cost-saving for the teams.
Added to the gearbox cassette, it is reported by Auto Motor Und Sport that the FIA have told teams about their intention to have more single-spec components, including braking systems, wheel rims, pit stop equipment, DRS and the halo.
According to the report, the list of parts include, but are not limited to:
- Brake discs
- Brake pads
- Steering column
- Wheel rims
- Crash structures laterally and behind
- drive shaft
- Brake and accelerator pedal
- DRS mechanism
- Innards of the fuel tank such as pumps
- Pit stop equipment
