Photos: 2017 F1 cars set a fresh look with larger numbers

2017 Formula 1 traditionally make the debut for the first European Grand Prix at Spain, this time F1 cars adapt new look with large race numbers and driver identification.

Last month FIA enforcing an existing regulation rather than implement a new one.

The clarification of new minimum requirements for the size of numbers in their liveries – which now have to be at least 180mm high with a stroke thickness of 30mm – and if driver names or three-letter ‘timing screen’ codes are used as well, they should be no less than 110m high and have a stroke thickness of 20mm.

The rule comes into effect from this weekend’s race at Barcelona. The numbers on the front of the car have also been increased to match the new requirements.

Most teams will use the controversial ‘shark fin’ centerline panel as the location for the larger number and driver identification.
