Ross Brawn, Formula One’s managing director of
motorsports, told reporters at the Singapore Grand Prix
that the intention was to develop cars that are “more
raceable” and that fans would be eager to stick pictures of
the new vehicles up on their walls.
“I’m pretty optimistic we are going to produce some great
looking cars that are going to be able to race each other
more closely,” 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.
“What we established early on in our research is the cars
we have now are very bad in following each other,” said
Brawn.
“Once the cars get within a few car lengths of each other,
they lose 50 per cent of their downforce.”
Brawn showed three different concept designs and said
the 2021 cars would incorporate the best features from all
of them. The unveiling came days after designs had been
leaked on social media.
The three design concepts include simpler front and rear
wings and a sweeping integrated halo cockpit protection
system to improve aesthetics.
