Former F1 driver and Sky Sports F1 pundit Karun Chandhok has suggested a rule tweak that could make races more "exciting" for fans.

While the Miami Grand Prix featured the most overtakes in a Grand Prix so far this season, the majority of drivers still only made one pit stop throughout the whole race.

One-stop races have become more of a trend in recent years in F1, as Pirelli bring a mix of Hard, Medium and Soft compound tyres to races.

Chandhok believes a tweak to the rule that states drivers must use at least two dry tyre compounds in a race to mandating all three dry compounds must be used, could add an extra variable to make the racing more entertaining.

It comes as F1 attempted to make tweaks to the DRS zones to aid overtaking in the opening races, as part of an agreement that that took place in an F1 Commission meeting pre-season.

F1 will also make changes to the tyre usage in qualifying in the upcoming race in Imola, where drivers will be forced into using specific compounds for each of Q1, Q2, and Q3 as part of an experiment.
