F1 reveals new auto designs for 2021

Lewis Hamilton facing test of endurance | Sport

For the upcoming seasons, Formula 1 is preparing a serious overhaul of the cars in the competition, aimed, for example, at encouraging overtaking.

Brawn's vision for the new look cars, set for 2021, was delivered in a "tech talk" seminar held by race organisers in Singapore on Wednesday night. "I'm pleased to say we're at about 80 [percent]". Brawn said the cars need to look so good that young fans will want posters of them on their walls.

Lewis Hamilton, whose F1 contract with Mercedes runs to 2020, has given his early backing to the futuristic designs.

The first concept (above) shows how the halo cockpit protection device can be much more integrated and subsequently more aesthetically pleasing.

What's wrong with the cars now?

Above everything else though, Brawn was clear that the new cars had to allow drivers to be able to follow each other more closely, which would help improve the racing.

'Once the cars get within a few auto lengths of each other, they lose 50 per cent of their downforce. "Which is why when drivers are on the same tyres of the same age they struggle to race each other on some tracks".

"When you get into that condition where you're two or three auto lengths behind, then you're losing grip, the tyres degrade more, and it becomes very challenging".

"We see it in other forms of racing, but they are often categories with fixed designs and everyone races the same vehicle".

"The prime objective of what we are doing is to try and produce cars that are more raceable.at the moment we've got designs that only lose 20 per cent of their performance".

"So a substantial improvement". Nevertheless, the sport's promoters Liberty Media have time and again said that the new vehicle will help make the sport more exciting and attractive as it aims to appeal to a younger fan base. We started the ball rolling, but all of the teams now have models that we've initiated and they're looking at them and feeding back into us, what they're finding with these models in their own analysis.

"Teams are now involved in this", he said.

"The teams have a limitation on the amount of aero testing they can do, but the FIA has granted them some extra time to work on this project, so there is a great incentive to find the best solution. They look better but there are a lot of technical reasons why we want them".
