Formula One present auto design concepts for the 2021 season

Formula One present auto design concepts for the 2021 season”

A couple of days ago images leaked from a private FIA press conference where Ross Brawn outlined his plan for the future of F1. Finding a ruleset that will allow for great racing in fast cars that look awesome is one thing, but getting the teams themselves to agree to it? And even if the event was closed to the public, images showing the racer did surface online.

That was certainly on display in a series of concept cars for the 2021 season the racing series showed to the world on Friday ahead of this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

Formula 1 has revealed plans to improve the quality of racing with a new vehicle design to be introduced in 2021.

The design features pared down front wings and the new, larger wheels, with the kind of detailed sidepods seen on today's F1 cars also missing.

"I see no reason why we can not have exciting-looking cars", said Brawn. But there is also a desire to have cars that look so good, kids want to have posters of them on their walls.

"So I'm pretty optimistic that we're going to produce some great-looking cars that are going to be able to race each other much more effectively than they were in the past".

Of the three, the third concept is the one most closely related to the current F1 cars, with the other silver auto (Concept 1) representing a more futuristic ideal - see the cleaner halo incorporation and more intricate spoiler.

"What we established early on in our research is the cars we have now are very bad in following each other".

"The current cars lose up to 50 per cent of their performance once they get to within one or two auto lengths. which means they struggle to race each other", added the Briton.

"We want a auto that is inspiring".

"I was looking at the auto presented a couple of days ago by Ross", he told reporters in a news conference after first practise. That's a substantial amount of performance lost. I'm pleased to say we're at about 80%.

The most notable change in all three concepts is the introduction of fairings near the wheels to improve the airflow, with cars for 2019 already set to include changes to the front wings based on similar principles.

"But alongside that, we wanted to make sure that we have some great looking cars".

F1 wants the cars of the future to be ones that get young people excited about motorsport.
