F1 gives first glimpse of its vision for 2021 cars

Here's What Formula 1 Wants Its Cars To Look Like In 2021

A first glimpse of the next generation of Formula One vehicle has been presented by the sport's technical boss Ross Brawn.

"We can't eliminate that completely but we can reduce it, so the time differential for one auto to attack another can be much less".

While initial reaction from fans has not been entirely positive, many comparing the look to IndyCar and Formula E, Brawn admits that it is early days and there is still some way to go before the final concept is presented.

"With the current cars, when they get to within two to three auto lengths, they can lose 50% of performance, the tyres degrade more and it becomes very challenging. We've got cars now which will maintain 80 percent, so a substantial improvement". "They look better but there are a lot of technical reasons why we want them". I think it's the first time Formula 1 has majored on these aspects. But there is also a desire to have cars that look so good, kids want to have posters of them on their walls.

The changes, which are created to make the sport more entertaining and attractive to fans, were shown on a mock Ferrari auto and included many differences to this years' cars.

'When we started looking at the 2021 auto, the primary objective was to enable the cars to race well together, ' Brawn told the official website.

Ross Brawn said of this design: "As the aerodynamicists were evolving the vehicle, the graphics designer was taking where they were and trying to capture it at each stage".

"They said it's a bit underwhelming in their opinion and it looks like an old Champ Car but it's an exercise". The prime goal of the work we're doing is to try and produce cars which are more raceable.

"As the aerodynamicists were evolving the vehicle, the graphics designer was taking where they were and trying to capture it at each stage", reveals Brawn.

Not only does F1 want to improve aerodynamics for the next F1 cars, but there's a real passion to design drool-worthy racers again.

"I've been involved in a number of initiatives where F1 is a catalyst to get young people's interest peaked in technology, the STEM topics - science, technology, engineering and maths", he says. "But we are quite encouraged with the cooperation with the teams at the moment and that will change of course at some point in the future when they move into a competitive mode rather than a cooperative mode".

"In doing this project, we recognised there are some features that benefits come from the nature of the flow that comes off the vehicle in front and the sensitivity of the auto behind to that", Brawn said".
