Formula One have released official images of how cars will look from the 2021 season onwards.
Wholesale changes are coming to the sport, with new-look cars, new rules and new cost controls all being introduced to help improve F1 going forward.
The most exciting change for fans of the sport, however, is certainly how the new cars will look from 2021 onwards.
Now, they have officially released first-look images at how their cars will look, and it’s safe to say they are pretty different.
The official F1 Twitter account has posted four pictures of the new-look car, highlighting how it will look from different angles.
The pictures are accompanied by a caption that reads: “Say hello to the future of F1.
“The countdown to 2021 starts now…”
During the live press conference where Chase Carey revealed all about the 2021 changes, the Liberty Media chief said: “Formula 1 is an incredible sport with a great history, heroes and fans all over the world.
“We deeply respect the DNA of Formula 1, which is a combination of great sporting competition, uniquely talented and courageous drivers, dedicated teams and cutting-edge technology. The goal has always been to improve the competition and action on the track and at the same time make the sport a healthier and attractive business for all.
“The approval of the rules by the World Motor Sport Council is a watershed moment and will help deliver more exciting wheel-to-wheel racing for all our fans. The new rules have emerged from a detailed two-year process of examining technical, sporting, and financial issues in order to develop a package of regulations.
“We made many changes during the process as we received input by the teams and other stakeholders and we firmly believe we achieved the goals we had set out to deliver. These regulations are an important and major step, however, this is an ongoing process and we will continue to improve these regulations and take further steps to enable our sport to grow and achieve its full potential.
“One of the most important initiatives we will be addressing as we go forward is the environmental impact of our sport. We already have the most efficient engine in the world and in the next few weeks we will be launching plans to reduce and ultimately eliminate environmental impact of our sport and business. We have always been at the leading edge of the automobile industry and we believe we can play a leadership role on this critical issue, as well.”
Exciting times for the sport.
