FIA REGULATIONS (Extract) - DRIVERS' EQUIPMENT

1. HELMETS

2. FLAME-RESISTANT CLOTHING (1)

In circuit events, hill-climbs, special stages of rallies and selective sections of cross-country events entered on the International Sporting Calendar, all drivers and co-drivers must wear overalls as well as gloves (optional for co-drivers), long underwear, a balaclava, socks and shoes homologated to the FIA 8856-2000 standard. Users must ensure that garments are not too tight, as this reduces the level of protection. Embroidery sewn directly onto the overalls shall be stitched onto the outermost layer only, for better heat insulation. Backing material of badges and thread used for affixing them to the overalls must be flameproof (see Appendix 1 of the FIA 8856- 2000 Standard for detailed requirements and instructions for use). Drivers of single-seater cars in races with standing starts must wear gloves in a high-visibility colour which contrasts with the predominant colour of the car, so that the driver can clearly draw the attention of the race starter in case of difficulties. Substances which may circulate in any cooling system worn by a driver are restricted to water, or air at atmospheric pressure. Water systems must not require the saturation of a garment in order to function. For events taking place in extreme heat, it is recommended that a cooling system be used (connected, for example, to the underwear designed for that purpose and homologated Exceptionally, driver cooling vests which are not FIA homologated may be worn but shall be in addition to the mandatory homologated underwear. They must include a base garment certified and labelled to ISO 15025 ; any tubing must be certified and labelled to ISO 17493 and must not be in contact with the driver's skin, and any connection to an on-board system.
