The F1: One Begins has taken place and Sporf got access to some exclusive material from the promo, including a glimpse of the new 2022 F1 car.
Next year, the current rulebook is set to be “ripped up”, with a new collection of rules that will come into place, all with the intention of making racing even more jaw-dropping.
The F1 One Begins event gave fans the opportunity to look at the new car and also be taken on a ride through history, with experts talking about the motors of the very beginning until now.
Ross Brawn, Managing Director of Motorsport at Formula 1, said: “It feels like a very long time ago the FIA officially unveiled the regulations for the future of the sport, but after the one-year delay due to the pandemic it’s only 170 days to go until the start of 2022 when we will see the next generation of Formula 1 cars take to the track.
“There is huge excitement ahead of this new era, and while 2021 has been a great battle we still have cars struggling to follow each other during the race. The regulations for 2022 will address this problem and create an opportunity for closer battles and more wheel-to-wheel racing.
“The combined effect of the new aerodynamic regulations and financial rules, in the form of the cost cap, will create the conditions for a more balanced championship and for the gaps across the grid to close.”
Nikolas Tombazis, Single-Seater Technical Director, FIA said:
“2022 will herald a new era for the FIA Formula One World Championship, with the introduction of one of the biggest changes in regulations in the history of the sport.
“The FIA has led a superb collaborative effort with Formula 1 and the teams to identify the areas we feel will have the biggest impact on the ability of the cars to race each other closely on the track, and in combination with the Financial Regulations that are already in place, these new Technical Regulations should have a great positive impact on the spectacle but also on the sustainability of our Sport.”
