FIA, the sport's governing body, also ruled that only team personnel and marshals will be allowed in the pits during qualifying and races. It will also seek the World Motor Sports Council approval for team personnel to wear head protection plus request a reduction in the pit speed limit from 100 kilometers per hour to 80.

"I think it's possible to get below two seconds. I think it's dangerous to put too much focus on that," McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh said, adding he has advised his team not to push so hard.

"I think now they are sufficiently short that in fact the odd tenth difference between the stops isn't material," he said. "What is material is the pressure we put people under to get to about a two second stop. Every now and then it goes wrong, and so the ones that are material are the ones that go wrong because of the pressure we put on people to try and do it in two seconds, and those are the ones that are often the game-changer, not 2.3s versus 2.4s versus 2.6s."
