F1 2021 concept car revealed
#1
https://www.grandprix247.com/2018/09/13/...ncept-car/

Formula 1 motorsport chief Ross Brawn has inadvertently, or by design, given us at a glimpse of what we can expect in terms of car design for 2021 and beyond.

A guest at a Tech Talk featuring Brawn and Pirelli F1 chief Mario Isola posted on Twitter:



One image shows Brawn speaking in front of a background showing a futuristic F1 design under a banner ‘2021 Concept Car’ in the background, providing a first [known] public glimpse at what the cars will look like when the new rules kick in three years from now.
 


To be honest, I don't particularly like it. It's too simple: it doesn't look aggressive enough or cutting-edge enough. And the 18-inch wheels look like the come straight off a Matchbox toy :-/

However, if these cars produce better racing, then I can certainly live with aesthetics that don't suit my tastes. I'll probably get used to them fairly quickly anyway :P .

Does it improve aerodynamics, or am I confusing that concept with the 2018 changes to the wings....?

Well, I believe the main objectives of the 2021 regulations are to cut costs. Aerodynamic development is expensive (and makes it harder for the cars to follow one another), which I guess is probably why they've simplified the aero here. 

(Also, while I like the improved safety that comes from the Halo, I do wish it looked more integrated into the rest of the car. It still just looks like it's been bolted on :( !)

I should point out, there was another quite different concept that was released too:

This one is much more to my tastes :O . Looks very aggressive and edgy, with those winglets on the sides. Yes, it still has the 18-inch wheels, but I think they suit this car quite nicely!

So, I hope F1 in 2021 looks more like this than the concept I posted in the opening post Thumbs-up .
