Nevertheless, the sport's promoters Liberty Media have time and again said that the new auto will help make the sport more exciting and attractive as it aims to appeal to a younger fan base. We've had a designer working with the aerodynamic group, so as we've progressed. The halo stands out straight away with its new curved design flowing better with the lines of the auto along with far greater visibility of the driver's helmet.

"Once the cars get within a few vehicle lengths of each other, they lose 50% of their downforce". We started the ball rolling, but all of the teams now have models that we've initiated and they're looking at them and feeding back into us, what they're finding with these models in their own analysis.

The cars now featuring the larger wheel rims, simpler specs front and rear wings along with a more athletically pleasing halo.

It's fair to say there's a certain amount of consternation about contemporary F1 cars; specifically the relatively limited opportunities they seem to offer for overtaking and close, fast, racing.

She is also set to ink a $10 million deal with Adidas to go with the almost $4 million she took home for her U.S. The public appearance comes just days after Serena was defeated by Japan's Naomi Osaka at the U.S.


The most notable change in all three concepts is the introduction of fairings near the wheels to improve the airflow, with cars for 2019 already set to include changes to the front wings based on similar principles.

"We're listening to what the fans want, we want to engage with their passion, we want them to feel that Formula One is listening to them". Previous regulation changes have resulted in unexpected and ugly design elements, and Brawn admits the first season of cars may not look exactly like the concepts.

"I was looking at the vehicle presented a couple of days ago by Ross", he told reporters in a news conference after first practise. "We may well find that, rather like the double diffuser, which was never considered when the rules were made, so we are going to do our best to arrive at a set of regulations that are as unambiguous as possible". And naturally, the cars are shown with 18-inch wheels. I think the confidence in F1 has since increased.

"Teams are now involved in this", he said. All 10 teams are working towards finding the best solution they can for 2021. "At the moment we have (new) designs that only lose 20% - maintain 80%". "What they're finding from the models we're sharing is pretty similar to what we're finding as well, which is encouraging".
