Now, strap in for this one. This new car design is properly genius - so let’s unpack it.

Formula 1 unveiled a full-size version of the new car recently, and it looks radically different to the current cars. Now, a lot of this is about improving the looks of the cars but mainly to do with improving racing.

But despite the crazy livery, the thing that caught my eye was the rear wing. We have never seen anything like this before - normally wings are boxy rather than curved like this, and for good reason!

So is this new look an aesthetic change, or to do with actually improving overtaking. Well, it turns out, the reasoning is genius.

The entire philosophy of this new car is about reducing dirty air, the major factor that makes it incredibly hard to overtake.

And on the current car the hundreds of complex aero surfaces create lots of downforce, but with the bi-product of dirty air.

When driving behind another car, your wings no longer work and you have to take different lines and work your tyres harder to keep up.

Wind tunnel research says that you can lose as much as 35% of your downforce when following a car within three car lengths, and as you close that up to one car length - you can lose as much as 57%!

I think your soft attitude is absurd. The car behind uses parasitic drag to distort the front stream and so screw up the front car, so... how about using the front stream to do the same? But not for you? Absurd. Not a warrior.

Closer for longer means more risk, surely? I love all the new design sure, and can't wait to see it in anger. But look at most of the big crashes we've had this year, they've all been caused by being to close to other cars. Now cars can get closer doesn't that increase the risk?

I am not an expert, I am just an average enjoyer with probably silly doubts, but is there a risk that, becuase of these changes, it becomes theoretically too easy to overtake at the point that being behind gives you more advance than being in front?

The funny thing is I think a lot of F1 aero engineers will be trying to subvert this system and kick dirty air at the car behind.. because being difficult to overtake is an advantage. So I hope the FIA police the airflow angles from the rear of the cars somehow

Okay the car behind can follow closer through the corners but on straights the front car won’t give the car behind a tow. Let’s see how that looks like while racing next season.

ABC’s of SALVATION ADMIT: You’re a sinner, condemned to DEATH (physical & spiritual) . Romans 3:10, 23 There is none righteous, no, not one … For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 6:23 & James 1:15 the wages of sin is death … sin, when it is finished bringeth forth death. (Spiritual death is eternity in HELL !) BELIEVE: that JESUS died, rose again, and that HE ALONE can save you from sin, death, and hell. Romans 10:9-10 if you: believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness. CONFESS: JESUS CHRIST, and nothing else, as your own Saviour. Romans 10:9, 10 & 13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus … confession is made unto salvation … whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Before it’s too late, forever, DO IT NOW! God’s gift is FREE and as easy as A-B-C !

In seasons past a reduction in downforce, and air management to the floor, has only increased the dependence on making the most of the available downforce. Changing the design philosophy to embrace mechanical grip may not be this simple. It will be interesting to see how teams decide to work within the new technical appendix of rules.

The mounting is ugly though. In early concepts it wasn't there or it was connected from the bottom side. Now that it's on top it ruins the wing's look.

Reminds me of Catch-up Mode in linked racing arcade games 90’s to current. The real drivers get up after they realize their real skills don’t win anymore. Loss revenue in racing games means F1 is going towards losing its incentive for the best drivers to put it on the line anymore. It’s not racing either slowing down the leader or speeding up the tailer. Let the crowd get in the car and race then, couch potatoes.

i really hope this new generation of f1 are the fastest cars ever produced, otherwise i believe it defeats the purpose. . . cause it seems like theyre heading towards an indycar style format. . . which will ruin the point of f1, cause f1 is the pinacle of car racing speed and innovation. The team winning has the most advanced solutions. The more they regulate it, the more it becomes a generic series, and that never works, A1 gp and super tourers for example
