The FIA has reduced both the qualifying and race pit lane speed limits for this weekend’s Australian GP.

Usually kept at 100km/h, the limit has been reduced to 60km/h at the request of FIA technical delegate Charlie Whiting.

This will have the knock-on effect of further lengthening the pit stops at the Australian GP, but given the the majority of teams feel they can operate on a single pit stop, it is unlikely to affect race strategies to any particular degree.

How many drivers will be fined this weekend as a result of this?
