2021 Concepts For Formula 1 Future
Wow – style and substance it seems! It looks like Formula 1 has a bright future ahead (even Lewis Hamilton has said that he would like to drive these cars in 2021) following these concepts which have been released.
The design is set to continue evolving but the 2021 concepts look good – really good and you can see what Formula 1 Motorsport boss, Ross Brawn had to say about the designs and how the cars will change to bring us more racing.
Ross Brawn: “When we started looking at the 2021 car, the primary objective was to enable cars to race well together. What we established early on in our research is that the cars we have now are very bad in following each other.”
“Once the cars get within a few car lengths of each other, they lose 50% of their downforce – that’s a substantial amount of performance which is lost so we set about understanding why that was and how we can improve it. I’m very pleased to say that we’re at about 80%.”
“As time has gone on, another of the primary objectives was to make great looking cars – we want cars to look better than what you see in a video game. Cars that kids will want to have up on their walls. At each stage, we have been evolving the car and we’ve had someone we are working with to create a graphic representation to give us a feel of what the car could look like.”
“We want a car that is inspiring, F1 is the pinnacle of motorsport and the car should look sensational.”
