The World Motor Sport Council approved the introduction of a “power ramp down” whereby cars that have exceeded the maximum allowed power usage during the race, must linearly ramp down to 0kW use within five seconds on track.

The car’s rain light and ready-to-move light must flash to alert other drivers on track.

After the car crosses the pit-in line in the first car, or the finish line in the second car, the driver must be able to reactivate the MGU power to continue the race, or return to the pits.

This amendment is designed to make the concept of drivers exceeding their power usage easier for spectators to follow.

The calendar for the 2016-17 FIA Formula E Championship was approved – the new calendar is:
