Wheels to rule F1 2021

Published

on

Formula 1 Managing Director Ross Brawn, technical heads Pat Symonds and Nicholas Tombazis point out there will be four vital proposals to regulate the Formula 1 championship for 2021.

Major changes effects on aerodynamic design which may help to reduce down-force and resizing the tyre from 13 inch to 18 inches. “We are in fairly deep consultation with Pirelli,” says Tombazis, “about how to make the tyres really step up and be in a position where they enable people to race; they don’t degrade, they don’t force people to manage the tyres so much.”

“I think we were asking completely the wrong things of Pirelli over the last two years,” adds Symonds. “The high degradation target is not the way to go.”

Another suggestion is that ban on tyre warmers at pit stop.

Driver should manage their car conditions on track like overheating and tyre wearing rather than discussing with their engineers.

“The front wing, we’re still not completely pleased about,” says Tombazis, “both from an aerodynamic point of view as well as aesthetic point of view. So for F1 fans some regulations we can expect on 2021 race.

Finally some cost cutting elements are proposed.

Standardizing wheel rims, brake system, radiator and pit equipment for all team. Also control the use of exotic materials and standard specific parameters for gearbox. Then ban on hydraulic suspension system. A reduction in wind tunnel time is also being considered.
