Team changes[edit]

Driver changes[edit]

Changes[edit]

The sporting and technical regulation were approved by the FIA on the July meeting of the World Motor Sport Council:[32]

Sporting regulations[edit]

  • Race distances will be fixed at 60 kilometres, and all races will use a standing start.
  • Qualifying will be held in three parts, with the top five going into Q3.
  • The balance of performance—introducing various waivers and differentiated base weights of the cars to equalise the field— but compensation weights will continue to be used.

Technical regulations[edit]

The series introduced a raft of changes to the technical regulations for the 2014 season. The cars are still built to Super 2000 regulations, but with significant changes compared to the 2011 generation of cars. The minimum weight of the cars was reduced from 1,150 kg to 1,100, and was accompanied by an increase in the power output of the engine, which rose to 380 bhp, an increase of between 50 and 60 bhp depending on the engine being used. The size of the wheels being used increased to 18", with MacPherson strut suspension being introduced to all cars. The dimensions of the cars changed, with a maximum width of 1,950mm, and a 100mm front splitter. Changes to the aerodynamic package have allowed teams to use flat floors, and introduce single-plane rear wings that are allowed to be no higher than the roof of the car.

Calendar[edit]

The provisional 2014 schedule was announced on 4 November 2013. The season is once again being contested over twenty-four races at twelve circuits, but will see several changes of venue. The races at Monza and the Circuito da Boavista have been removed from the schedule. The Races of France and Belgium returned to the calendar, with the Circuit Paul Ricard making its series debut, and the championship returning to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps for the first time since its inaugural season. On 4 January, FIA announces for Race of Japan this year the championship will run on the full Circuit of Suzuka. On 22 January it was announced the opening round at the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan was deferred by one week. On 2 June it was announced that the Race of the United States would be discontiniued due to logistics issues and will be replaced by additional round in China.[39]

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Sébastien Loeb had claimed his first career pole by setting the fastest time, ahead of team-mates José María López and Yvan Muller.[40] Loeb and López eventually lost their front row positions and their qualifying points after the automatic fuel cut-off system did not function correctly in scrutineering on their respective cars. Both drivers started the two races from the back of the grid and Muller was promoted to pole.[41]
  2. ^ Gianni Morbidelli had claimed his first career pole and the first of the season for a non-Citroën car by setting the fastest time, ahead of Yvan Muller and Sébastien Loeb.[42] Morbidelli eventually received a five place penalty for improving his time under yellow flag during Q1 but was entitled to keep the five championship points for pole position.[43]
