FORMER Formula 1 champion Nico Rosberg says rules need to be changed after Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen's physical title race.
The 2021 season went right down to the wire and ended up with Verstappen controversially clinching his first F1 title on the final lap.
There was also a fiery debate around Safety Car procedures.
How drivers overtake each other, as well as wheel-to-wheel action has also been scrutinised.
But 2016 champ and former rival of Hamilton says the newly-elected FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem has the opportunity to make changes.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Rosberg said: "The sport needs to make progress.
"It starts even with all the overtaking, the wheel-to-wheel action.
"The FIA needs to tighten all that up so that we don't have all these discussions.

"A quick decision is made, and we go on.
"We need to get rid of all these discussions, that's important."
