Cars may use no more than 100kg of fuel in each race (with the power unit regulations stipulating that fuel flow must not exceed 100kg/hour). Drivers exceeding the fuel limit during a race will be immediately excluded from the race results.

Teams may only refuel cars in their respective garages; however they may only do it at a rate of 0.8 litres per second and may not add or remove fuel from a car during a race.
