F1 reveals new car designs for 2021
16 September, 2018, 15:28
Formula One on Friday unveiled plans for futuristic new cars to be used from the 2021 season to improve racing and be more attractive to fans.
However, the 2021 rules will only act as a guide for the final designs as the teams will still have the freedom to develop their cars within the regulations in the pursuit of performance.
"But alongside that, we wanted to make sure that we have some great looking cars".
"The aesthetics of the cars are very important and everyone agrees we want great-looking Formula 1 cars.", said Brawn.
F1 have been working with the governing body throughout the process of designing the sleek new designs for the cars while keeping in touch with all the teams.
"We can't eliminate that completely but we can reduce it, so the time differential for one vehicle to attack another can be much less".
There are for now no official details on the design of the new auto, but the one in Ferrari livery pictured on the wall behind Brawn does show some differences when compared to the current design, including 18-inch wheels, revised front wings and rear endplates that arch around the wheels. Here, it's elongated with the driver sitting further back.
Overall one will note relatively simple front wing designs as well as changes to the halo's curves, with a general heavy emphasis on fluid lines. Some of the current racer's sharp angles have been ditched in favor of smoother lines and rounder panels.
NASA satellite launched to measure Earth’s ice changes
The United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta II rocket with ICESat-2 onboard blasts off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Commercial customers also moved to larger launch vehicles, leaving NASA as the primary user in the vehicle's final years.
Perhaps most notably, the concept featured the new 18-inch wheels which form part of the future F1 tyre tender contract.
"They look better but there are a lot of technical reasons why we want them", Brawn, said.
Finally, Concept 3, the most recent design, attempts to pull style from both earlier concepts. Concept 1 which is where we started, Concept 2, a little bit more extreme, our ideas have started to form more. The third concept also incorporates devices to control the way the airflow comes off the wheels, which will begin to solve F1's aero problems.
"Once the (current) cars get within a few vehicle lengths of each other, they lose 50 percent of their downforce".
"F2 cars can lose less performance when they are racing together, but the new IndyCar is great in that respect. We've got cars now which will maintain 80 percent, so a substantial improvement".
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 think one of the things you can see on these cars, the bigger wheels which we plan to go to in 2021, is we give a more modern feel to the vehicle.
"So the prime objective of the work we are doing is trying to produce cars which are more raceable". You do see a more seamlessly integrated halo device in the design of the F1 auto.
