2021 F1 Concept Leaks Following Official Tech Seminar In Singapore

With Formula One scrambling to finalize their rules and regulations overhaul for 2021, an official mock-up of a Ferrari was leaked via social media, taken straight from a ‘Tech Talk’ seminar attended by F1 tech boss Ross Brawn.

While the car is obviously a computer rendering, that doesn’t take away from the fact that this seminar was held behind closed doors, and that the car’s design could have been thought up by people currently involved with the project.

Take for example the 18-inch wheels, which will reportedly make their way onto F1 cars in 2021, part of a new set of rule changes, one that’s meant to make Grand Prix racing more exciting for the fans.

Compared to today’s cars, this design is a lot more streamlined, although the front wings feature more aggressively sculpted end-plates, extending way above the nose. We also notice that the engine cover and the rear wing appear to be one large piece, which raises the question of whether or not the DRS system in still in place – Autosport reports that Brawn has spoken before about his desire to get rid of the system.

Another interesting design trait is how the rear wing end-plates seem to cover the rear wheel. This could simply be a safety precaution, so as to keep cars from being launched over each other during rear-end collisions. On top of everything, even the Halo has been re-designed, looking arguably better on this concept than it does in real life. It almost looks like it features a two-piece design, but that’s probably just a visual characteristic.

Tell us what you think about this design and whether or not you’d like to see it implemented in Formula 1 three years from now.

    looks good

  • I don’t get the decisions with large diameter wheels, now it feels like FE than F1.

    • LeStori

      Need to get rid of the uncontrolled tyre suspension effect.

      • assassingtr

        I agree with LeStori, or more or less concur. The larger diameter wheels give a stiffer ride and a more predictable control than the smaller diameter. Although years before this would have sacrificed grip, I don’t think it matters that much these days.

    If it’s safer and just as fast I’m for it. It’s a looker too, but man is 2021 a ways off. Let the waiting game begin.

    This design is so good that even that halo looks reasonably acceptable (in terms of look of course, safety is not under discussion).
