F1 reveals new auto designs for 2021

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

"I'm definitely going to be driving if cars look like this".

"The aesthetics of the cars are very important and everyone agrees we want great-looking Formula 1 cars.", said Brawn.

"What our research showed early on is that the current cars are very bad at following each other".

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

F1 has been working on a new auto design for about a year, the 63-year-old former Mercedes and Brawn team boss said, collaborating with governing body the FIA and the teams on alleviating the problem whereby a vehicle behind another loses a significant amount of its performance. So we set about understanding why that was and how we can improve it. "At the moment we have (new) designs that only lose 20 per cent - maintain 80 per cent". The images show cars with much simpler front and rear wings and a more attractive-looking halo as those at the top look to make the racing closer, but the changes haven't been to the liking of everyone. "At each stage, as we have been evolving the auto, we've had someone we are working with create a graphic representation artist to give us a feel of what the vehicle could look like", he added.


"That is not to control the development, because it's critical this development achieves its objectives, but why shouldn't we have great looking cars as we're evolving the cars?" "How do (we) want to do it? F1 is the pinnacle of motorsport and the auto should look sensational", Brawn said.

F1 has worked hand in hand with governing body the FIA throughout, while the teams have been kept in the loop, too.

The radical cars depicted in the renderings showcase several different concepts offering various degrees of complexity. It looks curvier, yet somehow more aggressive. "As the aerodynamicists were evolving the auto, the graphics designer was taking where they were and trying to capture it at each stage", says Brawn. Concept 1 which is where we started, Concept 2, a little bit more extreme, our ideas have started to form more. "There's features on each part of the concept which may well carry over". "They look better but there are a lot of technical reasons why we want them".

A further refining of those ideas has led to the third, most up-to-date concept. Interestingly, Brawn reckons that next year's cars will be slower than the current ones as a result, though conceded that the existing rate of progress could have made them dangerously fast: "The cars are pretty impressive now but if they continue to develop at the rate they're developing there will be a need to pull it back", he said.
