Which changes in the cars are we going to see for next year? I've heard the change will be very little, the only things I know for the moment are the new Pirelli tyres and the new rules for DRS in free practice and qualifying.

This is going to be hugely controversial.

In the event of a crash, you're going to have a piece of bodywork flying all over the place.

Just wondering what's being done to the 2013 spec tyres such that they're going to increase in weight.

And on the tyre front, when are they, if ever, going to modernize them such that they run a lower profile than current. I thought I'd read Pirelli was interested in seeing a lower-profile spec when they were considering re-entering.
