Your 'Bernie' Rule

Recommended Posts

So, little bit of inspiration taken from something I saw on Reddit ;) Make up a rule for F1, it can be anything you want, the more ridiculous the better! It's likely that whatever rule you can think of will still be better than any of Bernie's :p 

Rule 1: The driver's safety cell and everything in it, the floor, and suspension must be made from the current carbon fiber composite. All other parts of the car must be made from rubber. The same kind of rubber used in bouncey balls. It's outward side is smooth and glossy to aid the aerodynamics, but inside must be as springy as possible. 25 Bonus points will be awarded before the start of a season for the car which bounces highest after being dropped from a crane. At Monaco, and other street races, bonus points shall be awarded to any driver who can accomplish a bounce assisted overtake.

Rule 2: Joker Laps. This rule will be enforced on all permanent circuits which have multiple layouts and configurations. All circuits that meet this will have another configuration of the circuit open, which is called the 'Joker Lap'.

Each driver will have 2 Jokers to use in the race, and they can use them whenever they like.  This is to add a new element to strategy and track position. For example, if you are stuck in traffic, you can use a joker to skip part of a lap and overtake them, giving you clean air. Also, if you are being chased, you could use it to escape the car behind you.

Exciting, huh!

Following on from that...

Rule 3: Each circuit will include a roundabout in the middle of the longest straight. 3 times per race each driver must loop the roundabout 3 times and then carry on in the same direction. If cars coming down the straight decide not to do the roundabout while cars ahead of them are, they are not permitted to lift, they must take their line without lifting the throttle and do their best to avoid cars looping.
Lifting the throttle will be detectable by the stewards, and will result in a penalty. The penalty shall be the next time that driver arrives at the roundabout, they must do a 360 loop and are then expected to lap the circuit the wrong way once. If they survive, once they make it back to the roundabout they may proceed to loop it and continue on in the correct direction.

Rule 4: The Race Director may choose to deploy the Safety Car at any time for any reason in order to bunch up the pack. Furthermore, the SC will only be used on one layout of the track, changing which one it uses at random intervals. Drivers using the other part of the track can carry on at full throttle.

Rule 4.1: The safety car will be driven by Pastor Maldonado and renamed the 'if it drives off the circuit and into a barrier you must follow it' car. Or the IIDOTCAIABYMFI car for short.

Rule 4.2: The IIDOTCAIABYMFI car will attempt to take out random drivers as it chooses. The drivers must attempt to avoid the car at all costs and will be excluded from the race if they touch the IIDOTCAIABYMFI car.

Rule 4.3: Fans can vote for drivers to be chosen as the sidekick of the IIDOTCAIABYMFI car, who will be dubbed as "Pastor's Little Helper". Pastor's Little Helper will assist the IIDOTCAIABYMFI car into eliminating whatever driver it has chosen for elimination. The results of the vote will be announced mid-race. The last-placed driver in the votes who is still in the race, is forced to continue it on Lewis Hamilton's segway.
