Formula 1 provides first look at 2021 concept cars

The concept car for 2021 was revealed yesterday and Hamilton was impressed

Rule changes affect the ways the cars look like and the way they are powered, and the latest important addition has been the adoption of the protective halo. I'm pleased to say we're at about 80 per cent. The current cars lose once they get within two or three cars lengths, they lose up to 50 percent of their performance, which is why when drivers are on the same tyres of the same age, they struggle to race each other on tracks.

"I see no reason why we can't have exciting-looking cars". This process has led to a series of concepts, which have evolved in three stages - and will continue to develop.

Reacting to images originally posted social media, Hamilton said in an Instagram Story: "I'm def gonna [sic] be driving if cars look like this...just please bring a V12 or V10 [engine] back".

The second concept (above) is more refined and stylistically more aggressive.

The concept image with the Ferrari livery boasts of several design differences over the current F1 vehicle. Concept 1 which is where we started, Concept 2, a little bit more extreme, our ideas have started to form more. It turns out that 18-inch wheels actually do look pretty damn good.

A notable feature on all three of the concepts is the aerodynamic devices just behind the front wheels that, it's hoped, will alleviate a lot of the problem of one vehicle trying to follow another.

Brawn maintains that the tyres and wheels are still the dirtiest areas of the vehicle and can still cause huge disruption to the car's airflow. "We are starting to look at devices that can stabilize the flow as it comes of the wheel". That will still allow for time for a period of refinement. He believes that this idea can mature as it is worked on over the next few years. It is hoped the final design will encouraging teams involved to stay in F1, while encouraging new teams to join and boost the grid.

"But there is no guarantee and I think the key thing is to be able to respond quickly when we see things that happen that are unintended. We definitely want to have a queue of people that want to come into F1".

"We're short of engineers of the future. F1 is a great opportunity to promote technology and through F1 in Schools, for the younger students, then there's Formula Student, which is a competition that goes on in universities".
