F1 reveals images of 2021 vehicle concepts

Lewis Hamilton facing test of endurance | Sport

"The primary thing we're doing is trying to reduce the amount of performance lost to a following vehicle", Brawn said.

As for the future generation racers, Brawn said that the organization is "looking at a new style of Formula 1 auto, aesthetically more modern and futuristic, as I don't think we've really captured as much as we could do in that regard".

"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?"

A more stylistically aggressive approach, and the anticipated switch to 18-inch wheels in 2021, has also been developed on the concept ideas that was shown on Friday.

Although the final regulations have not yet been agreed upon, Brawn presented three concepts that have been developed by Formula One's aerodynamic group with the help of a designer. Estimating that the current regulations mean a 50 per cent reduction in downforce in this situation, Brawn says the new regulation has improved this by 30 per cent, so that a vehicle only loses 20 per cent downforce.

Volkswagen to stop making its classic Beetle next year
Here's the bad news: Volkswagen has announced that it is going to stop the production of Beetle from next year. The car's popularity, already quite high, skyrockets and 423,000 units are sold that year in the U.S. alone.

"In doing this project, we recognised there are some features that benefits come from the nature of the flow that comes off the auto in front and the sensitivity of the vehicle behind to that", Brawn said".

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. We want cars that look better than what you see in a video game, cars that kids want to have up on their walls. If the cars really can look like this and improve the racing, then it can't come soon enough! I was asking our engineers what they thought about this, they said it's a bit underwhelming in their opinion and it looks like an old ChampCar. "It's maturing as we go along". He believes that this idea can mature as it is worked on over the next few years. I think the confidence in F1 has since increased. Further details have just been released on the official F1 website, we'll be sure to have a peruse over these and garner information on some of the key changes.

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

"The encouraging thing is that the teams are now involved with us".
