The organizers of the iconic Formula 1 racing series have unveiled a full-size car for the 2022 season for the first time. This is what all 2022 Formula 1 cars will look like as a result of the revision of the rules of this sport.
The custom-designed design was unveiled at Silverstone on the Thursday ahead of the British Grand Prix this weekend. While the teams are already hard at work on their racing cars for the 2022 season, Formula 1 has developed its own interpretation of what a car built with the new rules would look like.
The most impressive features are the flat nose, wheel fairings, large front fender with integrated end plates and a unique rear wing concept.
The aim of the new car is to make the race better, and especially to improve overtaking.
The new race car features a ground-effect floor structure and much simpler fenders to ensure that most of its downforce comes from areas of the car that are not affected by close adherence to a rival.
FIA head of technical issues for single-seaters, Nicholas Tombasis, said when the concept for the new car was first unveiled.
“We want the cars to be able to race and follow each other and have more exciting battles on the track,” he said. “We want tires that allow people to fight each other without demeaning themselves or giving only a short interval to overtake. New cars are simpler than current ones because many small components have been removed, especially in front of the side supports. the wings got a simpler design. “
“There is a diffuser just under the car – like a Venturi channel. There are tunnels under the side supports from front to back. “
However, it is likely that the actual 2022 cars will be different when shown next year, and teams will strive to use the new rules and evolve the design of their cars in ways that better optimize performance.
