Is it legal in F1 to have automatic gearboxes? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I couldn't be bothered with changing gears in an F1 car. I only want to use steering wheel and pedals.

    Could I ask my team to incorporate an automatic gearbox instead of manual, or this against the regulations?

    No, semi-automatic gearboxes are only used in F1 as automatic gearboxes are indeed illegal according to the F1 sporting regulations.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
