It looks like the driver can still talk to the pits about performance, but not vice versa.

Well, seems as if I can't be bothered trusting the FIA anymore.

It looks like the drivers can still talk about the performance.

I wonder what this is limited to, though. I'm assuming lap times wouldn't be off-limits, but real-time telemetry would be? Almost like NASCAR's system, in a way.

Or would it be something immensely over-complicated and semi-pointless?

Knowing the teams, they'll find a way to get around this.

I think it's more for stuff like "You can brake 0.1m further in turns 1 and 5." or "You can run 1 metre wider coming out of turn 12".

Not that this would change much, pit wall has more knowledge of what is happening with the car than even the driver.

Ban disallows communication of how a driver can improve performance, i.e. areas he loses time and where his team mate improves for instance. Nonetheless, nothing stops the drivers being told this information during post-practice/quali driver briefing. Also disallowed is the coded messages, for instance last years "Multi 21".

At least these are my interpretations from Autosport's report.

Looks like someone needs to smack the FIA in their faces.
