F1 reveals new car designs for 2021

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

While nothing specific was said about what the engine regulations will look like, F1 managing director of motorsports and technical director Ross Brawn hinted to several members of the media after the presentation that the current V6 hybrid units will remain. These proposals were to streamline the development of the cars and develop a financially sustainable future for the sport which would allow the entry of more teams and hopefully, a wider range of manufacturers. And even if the event was closed to the public, images showing the racer did surface online.

Under current regulations, Formula 1 cars lose around 50 per cent of their downforce while in dirty air, a statistic Brawn hopes will reduce to 20 per cent under the proposed concept.

Following a leak of a F1 design study, Formula 1 officially revealed a trio of concept proposals for the sport's upcoming overhaul in 2021. For the 2019 season, F1 already announced a simplified front wing with a larger span and low outwash potential, a simplified front brake duct with no winglets and a wider and deeper rear wing. The image below represents a guideline into how the new cars could look.

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

"The new cars will look more exciting, in my view".

'As time has gone on, another of the primary objectives was to make great looking cars.

"Once the (current) cars get within a few auto lengths of each other, they lose 50 percent of their downforce".

Some of the concepts show that the halo above the cockpit is stylistically more integrated with the car's design while others show how the design team are looking at controlling the airflow over the wheels.

"The prime goal 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".

"The primary thing we're doing is trying to reduce the amount of performance lost to a following vehicle", Brawn said. So we set about understanding why that was and how we can improve it. "The aesthetics of the auto for me are very important".

"Everybody goes their way sometimes, but I think at the end we can find the solution".

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