FIA after more consistent stewarding

The FIA are looking to make stewarding decisions more consistent.

In the recent world motorsport council meeting in Vienna, a number of ideas were posed, including video review meetings following every third Grand Prix to review previous decisions.

F1 Stewards' chairman Garry Connelly also suggested that more circuits be adapted to punish corner cutting.

"We went through a lot of rules and looked at how we can work with the FIA to tidy up the wording, enabling us to take quicker decisions," Connelly said.

"We talked a lot about how we can achieve better consistency. We think that more meetings and more reviews of past decisions are necessary, so that we all understand how each panel of stewards is treating a particular situation, especially where it's necessary for the stewards to make a subjective ruling, on a dangerous driving charge for example. That is quite a subjective issue.

"These are obviously decisions that are made collectively but understanding how those decisions can be made more consistent is valuable."
