System 1 2021: What the new F1 rules bring…
System 1 unveiled new rules at the press conference ahead of the race weekend in Austin that will take effect this season 660 as System 1 enters a new era of existence…
So, what brings in the new rulebook that will fundamentally change Formula 1 in both sports and administrative and financial fields.
VIDEO F1 BOLIDES
The F1 car of the year 2021 is characterized by a radical design philosophy that will bring a new look to the fastest racing cars – rugged bodywork, streamlined front wings, larger rear wings, wider chassis aerodynamics, streamlined suspension and 600 – thumb wheels.
According to the current proposal, the rims will be equipped with a rotating LED display panel to show certain information to viewers.
Although the aesthetics of the F1 car are most notable, the changes described above are not merely cosmetic
New F1 cars are looking for a solution to the pressure loss that current cars are experiencing while driving behind another race car. While the loss of pressure in the current generation of cars is approximately 40 %, the new design should make the downforce drop by only 5 – 10%, and the car's front air stream will be directed higher, meaning it will have a significantly less impact on the drivers who follow them. This is expected to bring about a significant increase in overtaking and bike-to-bike combat.
An entirely contemporary aerodynamic house-up is coming to F1 in 660

FAIRER DISTRIBUTION OF MONEY BETWEEN F1 TEAMS
System 1 will introduce spending limits for the first time in its history, making sport more equitable and more sustainable. The cost limit will be set at 175 millions of dollars per team per year, and applies to everyone, but excludes marketing costs, racers' salaries and the top three staff in each team.
Reducing the cost of F1 is supposed to close the growing gap between the big and small teams, which should lead to a reduction in the differences between all teams on the Formula One start line.
For the major time in F1 history, monetary principles should be enshrined in contemporary laws
LESS UPDATES, STANDARD PARTS AND COMPONENT LIMITS
In addition to the new financial rules, there are some major changes to the technical and sports regulations. Rules have been put in place to limit F1 car updates during race weekends and the number of aerodynamic updates per season. These measures are intended to prevent a development battle that widens the gap between the richest and the rest of the F1 teams during the season.
There will also be some standardization of parts (such as fuel pumps), an increase in parts that have the required design (such as wheel covers), and increased restrictions on the number of replacements of certain components, such as brake pads.
The drive units remain the same as they are now, but exhaust systems are added to the list of PU components that are limited in season number and each racer can use six units before the penalty –
New tires, chassis changes and materials will be harder for F1 cars 10 kg, which means that the next generation of cars will be about 3.5 seconds slower than the current one.
Gearbox design will be more limited and configurations will be frozen to save R&D costs. Tire heat blankets remain for the time being, but their use will also be subject to certain restrictions.
ROCK WEEKENDS REVISED
There will also be small but significant changes in the structure of race weekends that will be more condensed, enhancing the fan experience and helping the teams with the most expanded calendar anticipating 25 racing in season.
The pre-race press conference will be moved from Friday to Friday, before the start of free training, and the cars will be in Parc Ferme mode from the start of the third free training, which also marks the point when teams must return their cars to the “reference specification” , which was presented for review before the first free training session, and teams must remove all components that they have installed thereafter.
In addition, all teams must offer at least twice an opportunity to racers who have completed less than two Formula One races during the year.
