F 1 Reveals Its Brave New 2021 Future–Cost Caps, A Closer Pack And The Return Of Ground Effect!

For some time, much hope has been held in Formula 1’s overhaul due for the 2021 season. Better racing, a more competitive pack and lower costs are its main aims, though there have been some some doubts about the new package of regulations, and some delays in details arriving. Yet we’ve just had some meat on the bones, as F1 and governing body the FIA have unveiled a few ways that they intend to achieve the lofty aims. And in a surprise move, they intend to reintroduce ground effect to help cars race in close proximity.

Ross Brawn, F1’s managing director of motorsports, along with its chief technical officer Pat Symonds and the FIA’s head of single-seater technical matters Nicholas Tombazis, have outlined ‘four key pillars’ of the 2021 proposals. Artist’s impressions of the new car have also been released.

The first pillar is ‘more raceable cars’, achieved via ground effect–downforce produced by cars’ shaped undersides–playing a ‘much bigger role’, aiding a major reduction in the downforce loss experienced when running behind another car, from about a 50% loss in 2017 to a 5-10% loss in 2021.
