Formula 1 - F1 cockpit warning lights back for Spain

Formula 1 drivers will have cockpit warning lights for the first time this season in the Spanish Grand Prix, with the FIA now happy that its electronic marshalling system is working properly.


Following problems at the first four flyaway races, the governing body had been forced to disable the cockpit warning systems because of problems that new supplier Riedel was suffering.

But having elected to stick with Riedel despite the ongoing issues, the situation has now improved.

A notice to the teams issued on Sunday morning say that the cockpit flag systems, safety car mode and DRS disabling will all be provided from race control - with the only issue now being automatic blue flag messages on the timing screens.
