The fundamental flaw with F1's 2021 plan
By:
Jul 22, 2019, 1:33 PM

After Formula 1's intentions for the 2021 rules reset became clear last week, our technical expert received many questions on this topic. He therefore gathered together several to present his thoughts on a critical moment for the championship

Do you think the 2021 concept is the right direction for F1?
Mario Colombo, via email

I totally agree with the Formula 1 teams that if the new 2021 regs are too prescriptive then all the cars will be indistinguishable and may lack design intrigue and any wow-factor. I fail to understand why the rules cannot be 'restrictive' rather than 'prescriptive' so that the form and shape of the cars can be different. Yes, maybe, the cars will all eventually converge on a similar optimum design but we may at least get a few years of divergence.
