"The plan is to make it mandatory for there to be two tailpipe exits rather than the current single one."
"It's been evident all season that a number of teams have had deflecting front wing flaps and in a few cases the cascade winglets too."

Comment of the day
Has Alonso made the right career move? James suspects so:
F1 has only one team now – Mercedes. And Alonso has come second a couple of times with Ferrari, so it’s no big deal to him if Vettel finishes second this year or next. The man simply wants to win and he needed, in my opinion of course, to make the move.
I find it particularly interesting though with Alonso’s comment, in light of the difficulties of McLaren, that being ‘an actor’ is an ‘essential’ part of being a F1 driver.
