    Jan.28 (GMM) F1's controversial safety car rules have been scrapped ahead of the 2009 season, the FIA's Charlie Whiting confirmed in a media briefing on Tuesday.

    "The rule introduced in 2007 was a bad one, and we've gone back to the 2006 regulations," the governing body's technical and safety delegate said.

    We had also reported in October that, to accompany the revised system, drivers will need to adhere to a minimum lap time as they drive slowly after deployment of the safety car, as was trialled several times in free practice last year.

    The new rules are an improvement but not perfect, BMW-Sauber team manager Beat Zehnder said last year.

    "If at the time of (race) neutralisation you were just past the pits, it will be a problem because you will have do a full lap."

    I think this year SF ruined a lots of drivers's race, i hope this retun to old system will be good.
