The alarm that still sounds from the FIA's driver expression clampdown

OPINION: The FIA has clarified how it sees its new driver expression restrictions working on the eve of the 2023 Formula 1 season and motorsport’s most visible championship starting again. But questions over the whole saga remain.

The new Formula 1 season is finally right around the corner. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen versus Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in a Bahrain Grand Prix battle sequel, hopefully with a Mercedes threat thrown in too – that would be an ideal start.

But there are still three days of pre-season testing to go before the racing can begin. And, ahead of that running also in Bahrain this week, the fallout from a rather needless distraction is being discussed: the FIA's codified clampdown on driver expressions during the off-season is about to conclude.
