F1 LIVE: Lewis Hamilton gets Mercedes resolution as Fernando Alonso slams FIA | F1 | Sport

Fernando Alonso has suggested that changes to F1’s red flag mandatory pit stop rules are unlikely because the FIA ‘don’t listen to the drivers’.

“The only point of interest in a Monaco race is the pitstops that you have to do,” he told Autosport. “If you remove that excitement of a pitstop, then it becomes nothing.

“Maybe it reopens the conversations of when there is a red flag, not changing tyres or be obliged to have the same tyre or something, because if not, there are certain occasions that the race is compromised.”

Asked if the rules could be changed in the future, he added: “I don’t know. There are many things that they have not changed, probably because they don’t listen to the drivers.”
