Here’s The First Official Look At The F1 2022 Cars – WTF1

Here’s The First Official Look At The F1 2022 Cars

Well, after being postponed a year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the new era of F1 is here and it’s… uh holographic. Okay, so that’s not exactly how the liveries will look, but this rather unusual display on the cars was a big talking point rather than the actual car itself. 

The big reveal which was broadcast on YouTube, showed fans what this new generation of car will look like and we heard from some of the sport’s big brains to dissect the reasons behind the rule changes.

With the new 18-inch rims and Pirelli tyres on display, and the new wheel covers and deflectors that surround them, there are also obvious changes to the car such as the restyled front wings which are a lot more simple. 

The new technical regulations have been introduced to increase overtaking and produce better racing, as well as helping with the cost caps and just more pleasant to drive by making them less prone to turbulence. 

The car was then taken outside to the F1 drivers for them to get their views on it!

What do you think about it? Let us know in the comments below.

    I’m no engineer, but that looks like a whole load of whimsy to me. Formula 1 is called Formula ‘one’ because it is the sports foremost formula, like the greatest recipe for a track racing car. Extending the metaphor a bit, it is not supposed to be the finished meal, just a box-full of ingredients that the sport’s top chefs (designers) can spice up at will. In that way we always get technological surpises – some work and others don’t. This looks like a boring ready-meal.

  • I am looking forward to seeing each different team’s takes on the new car. At the end of the day it is all about how they race. Aero was out of hand and with wings upon wings and added winglets etc. The amount of CFD and simulation quoted is astonishing. Next year is gonna be shaken up a bit, and hopefully plenty of close racing when the new cars are bedded in.
