The 2019 Formula 1 season is just enjoying its mid-year summer break, but back at the FIA (and secret team garages most likely not abiding by the rules), loads of engineers and physicists are hard at work mocking up prototypes of the 2021 Formula 1 car. And as this video shows, a scaled-down version of the future racer is already undergoing serious wind tunnel testing.
The footage and technical debrief were uploaded to F1's official YouTube channel to highlight some of the biggest changes between the current and future F1 cars. Of course, the narrator quickly discloses that this prototype shows "the potential vision F1 and the FIA have for the sport's future cars." In other words, it may not look anything like this once 2021 rolls around.
