Formula 1 reveals renderings of radical 2021 new-look cars!

Lewis Hamilton facing test of endurance | Sport

Style and substance. F1 has been working with the FIA and the teams to create a Formula 1 auto for 2021 that delivers better racing and has the looks to match.

"The aesthetics of the cars are very important and everyone agrees we want great-looking Formula 1 cars.", said Brawn.

Brawn said the main aim, however, was to have cars that could race more easily and overtake without losing performance at close quarters due to aerodynamic turbulence.

The Texas Department of Public Safety, whose Texas Rangers are investigating, did not return several messages seeking comment. Mr Alaniz said investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the killings, and that they believe Ortiz acted alone.


Earlier this week, Brawn and Pirelli racing boss Mario Isola spoke to fans during a Tech Talk in which the F1 sporting boss revealed a concept auto for 2021. The unveiling came days after designs had been leaked on social media.

"What our research showed early on is that the current cars are very bad at following each other".

"So the prime goal of the work we are doing is trying to produce cars which are more raceable".

Typhoon Mangkhut Pummels Hong Kong, Southern China
It's only the 15th time in the last 60 years that a T10 alert has been hoisted; the last was for super typhoon Hato last year. Before the storm made landfall, Civil Defense used that knowledge to pre-position hundreds of thousands of food packs.


"It is like a force field".

"When you get into that position where you are two or three vehicle lengths behind, you are losing grip and the tyres degrade more and it becomes very challenging".

"We can't eliminate that completely but we can reduce it, so the time differential for one auto to attack another can be much less". Estimating that the current regulations mean a 50 per cent reduction in downforce in this situation, Brawn says the new regulation has improved this by 30 per cent, so that a auto only loses 20 per cent downforce. "At the moment we have (new) designs that only lose 20 per cent - maintain 80 per cent".

It remained a Category 1 hurricane with top sustained winds of 80 miles per hour , but stronger gusts have been reported. Hurricane Florence has claimed the lives of four people in North Carolina, and left hundreds of thousands without power.


Brawn would not give further details of the aerodynamic concepts involved in reducing the effect of the wake of one auto impeding the performance of one behind. And F1 is working on a design for a future auto that will increase the chances of great fights, all the way down the field, every year. So a vehicle running in dirty air doesn't just lose downforce from the front wing, it also affects the rear because that front tire wake control is no longer effective. "We are starting to look at devices that can stabilise the flow as it comes of the wheel". Interestingly, Brawn reckons that next year's cars will be slower than the current ones as a result, though conceded that the existing rate of progress could have made them dangerously fast: "The cars are pretty impressive now but if they continue to develop at the rate they're developing there will be a need to pull it back", he said.
