‘We don’t want to have an arms race’: Mercedes chief Toto Wolff calls for a penalty rules to be ‘reconsidered’ after the chaotic scenes that led to multiple grid changes ahead of Italian Grand Prix

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff believes the current Formula 1 engine penalty rules need to ‘reconsidered’ after the chaos at the Italian Grand Prix. ‘We need to reconsider [the system] when the engine cap kicks in.’ The Austrian is aware though, that there needs to be some way of making sure teams don’t take advantage over the rules on changing parts. If there are no grid penalties, we would have qualifying engines – not five but 20. Wolff isn’t the only one who believes the rules need to be looked at in this current era. Ferrari’s Mattia Binotto also says there needs to be more clarity when it comes to the penalties.
