The Technical Advisory Committee discussed both short and long-term measures to get rid of porpoising this week.

During the F1 Commission meeting in Austria it was agreed that the technical directive regarding porpoising would come into force from the Belgian GP. More than that, it was decided that a set of long-term actions would be agreed during the Technical Advisory Committee meeting.

The FIA, F1, and technical directors of all teams had a meeting on Thursday to discuss the matter.

Despite displeasure of some teams, the FIA insisted that the plans regarding the technical directive would not be changed. It means that the Aerodynamic Oscillation Metric as well as the flexible floors clampdown will be used starting from the Belgian GP.

It was also decided that the floor edges would have to be 25mm higher for 2023 cars. The underfloor diffuser throat would be raised as well as more stringent lateral floor deflection tests would be introduced.

Furthermore, it was also agreed that actions would be taken on roll hoops following Guanyu Zhou’s crash at the start of the British GP.

All the decisions have to be approved by the World Motor Sport Council.
