Q3 will remain as the fastest 10 drivers. Use of DRS in free practice and qualifying will be restricted to the designated DRS zones. In response, all tracks will have two DRS zones where feasible. The rules of force majeure have been removed to clarify scrutineering. A car stopping on track during qualifying must have sufficient fuel on board to have returned to the pits and provide the mandatory sample - no excuses. A new penalty points system is introduced to the driver licensing system. Dangerous driving will incur penalty points on a driver's Super Licence that could lead to a racing ban. Overnight curfews during race weekends are extended from 6 to 8 hours, while the allowable exceptions per season reduces from 4 to 2. Team entry fees have gone through the roof. Technical Platypus noses can be covered with a non-structural, non aerodynamics influencing "modesty plate" Front wing testing standards are more rigorous, requiring a maximum 10mm deflection under a 100kg point load applied at various locations. The Mercedes-style 2012 "double DRS" system is banned by the technical regulations, although the Lotus 2012 interpretation technically isn't banned. Car minimum weight increases from to 642kg from 640kg, to allow for heavier 2013 specification Pirelli tyres.
