Formula 1 – cars 2021: announcements and rule changes

The Formula 1 season starts on March 28

the 2021 formula 1 season is just around the corner. Before the upcoming test drives, however, the racing teams will be presenting their new cars. Here at SPOX find out everything about the new service cars of sebastian vettel, mick schumacher and co.

Formula 1: the rule changes for 2021

The following car rule changes will come into effect for the 2021 season:

  • Underbody

This change is being introduced because of the ever-increasing downforce generated by the teams, which is making pirelli’s tires too hard to handle.

Since pirelli has been producing basically the same tires for two years, it was decided to slow down the cars a bit. The FIA and the teams have agreed that changes to the car should reduce downforce by around ten percent to compensate for the gains during this period. Designers are now prevented from having fully enclosed holes in the underbody throughout the range.

The diffuser has also been adjusted to generate less downforce. The height of the dividing vertical struts must be 50 millimeters shorter next season.

  • Weight

For 2021, the minimum weight of vehicles has been increased again by three kilograms. It will then be 749 kilograms. At the same time, the minimum weight of the power units was increased to 150 kilograms. This should also alleviate manufacturers’ concerns about having to pursue exotic and expensive materials to save weight.

Unchanged from the previous rules, but important due to the ban on qualifying modes, is the fact that teams will now only have a certain number of engine modes available per season.

  • THE

It has been clear since the beginning of the season that the mercedes steering system will not be permitted in the coming season. The changes were written into the regulations early on to prevent the system from being used for 2021.

  • Copying

The furor over the design of the racing point RP20 has now died down. Nevertheless, the new regulations want to ensure that there will be no repetition of the case.

A new section at the end of the rules covers the subject of listed parts in more detail than ever before. It highlights how a team could take up a competitor’s design concept without copying it directly.

The teams are reminded that they can only gather information about the design of the competition at events or tests and that it must be information that is available to all participants. Basically, this restricts the teams to use only regular photos or videos. The use of reverse-engineering techniques such as stereophotogrammetry or 3D scans has now been banned.
