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

The next major regulation change is set to be implemented in 2021, with a working group from F1 itself being headed up by managing director of motorsports Ross Brawn.

For as long as there has been a Formula 1 class of racing, the cars have been under constant development - some years the changes have been smaller, sometimes bigger, sometimes taking a step back in performance in the name of legislation. And even if the event was closed to the public, images showing the racer did surface online.

"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.

Formula 1 has revealed images of its 2021 auto concepts that are now in development with the aim of producing closer racing.

The design features pared down front wings and the new, larger wheels, with the kind of detailed sidepods seen on today's F1 cars also missing.

Brawn said that one of the primary objectives of the new design was to have "cars that look better than what you see in a video game, cars that kids want to have up on their walls".

"The primary objective is to produce raceable cars, cars that will battle in close proximity", he said.

"What we established early on in our research is the cars we have now are very bad in following each other", said Brawn.

President George Weah Makes Football Comeback
Fans were shocked to see the former World player of the year lead his team onto the pitch, 16 years after his last appearance. Even though he retired 15 years ago and he's quickly approaching 52 of years of age, he played 79 minutes in the 2-1 defeat.

Google is shutting down ‘Inbox by Gmail’ app by March 2019
Google has announced that Gmail Offline will be removed from the Chrome Web Store in December, because it isn't needed anymore. The company introduced the app as an experimental platform to test new features which will later rolled out to Gmail .

The former Mercedes team principal said he had been working with teams and motorsport governing body FIA to develop new aerodynamics that would enable cars to follow each other at shorter distances without a loss of performance.

The first concept (above) shows how the halo cockpit protection device can be much more integrated and subsequently more aesthetically pleasing.

"We're listening to what the fans want, we want to engage with their passion, we want them to feel that Formula One is listening to them". "The aesthetics of the vehicle for me are very important".

"The current cars lose once they get within two or three cars lengths - they lose up to 50 percent of their performance, which is why when drivers are on the same tires of the same age, they struggle to race each other". The year 2021 stands to be key in Liberty's ownership of F1 as they are set to introduce a raft of new regulations, including new engines and tyres.

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

'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?

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