Before the start of the season, the FIA introduced the latest technology to check the legality of racing cars. The new aerodynamic rules have brought an abundance of different interpretations and forms of racing cars, and teams are also quickly looking for holes in the rules or gray areas when something is not explicitly forbidden or allowed. From this year on, the FIA will test racing cars with a state-of-the-art, fully electronic, laser scanning and measuring system. “We check car racers to see if they comply with all the geometric guidelines,” explained Nikolas Tombazis, technical director of single-seater race cars at the FIA. "Then we physically check the car and compare it with a computer model by scanning it with this modern system. This allows us to review an individual part with a manual scan.
