S6 RULES, LONGER RACES?
AND ATTACK MODE TO BE MORE POWERFUL
Season 5 races has been often discussed by the drivers for being too much of a "Sprint Race", with minimal energy saving.
For this reason, Alberto Longo (new FE CEO) has proposed to add at least 5 minutes to the current race time (45 minutes).
A 50 minutes timed race is on cards, pushing the teams to look for the maximum efficiency. If confirmed, races will likely be slightly more tactical, with plenty of action towards the end as drivers gets into energy managment trobules.
The Nissan-esque Twin Motor solution is going to get banned. Only one motor will be allowed for Season 6.
Also, Attack Mode will be more powerful. +10 kW, from 225 to 235 kW.
Cars Power output is set to remain the same for Season 6, it seems. So 250 kW quali, 200 kW races.
