Nico Rosberg gives his opinion on the new F1 concept cars


Former World Champion Nico Rosberg says that he is ‘loving’ the proposed new concept cars for the 2021 season of Formula 1.

Follow this. Track all the details.

The future of Formula 1, and how the future of the sport will look, has been the topic of much debate this week after a series of potential concept cars for the 2021 season were released online. 

Formula 1 chiefs have said that they are keen to bring back ‘style and substance’ to the sport, amid concerns that the sport is losing its aesthetic and exciting appeal. 

This concern has only been heightened by the growing success of Formula E, the electronic only variant of F1 that was launched in September 2014, and has since witnessed phenomenal growth. 

Despite these concerns, the new designs for what the F1 cars of the future might look like have been a huge hit with many fans, and Rosberg has now also thrown his backing behind the new-look cars.

Hamilton impressed by Formula One’s next

Lewis Hamilton has said he is ready to extend his career beyond 2020 after giving his seal of approval to Formula One’s next-generation car.

On the eve of the Singapore Grand Prix, F1 provided a glimpse into the future after a concept of the machinery the sport hopes will inspire a new breed of fans was unveiled.

Break.

The 63-year-old, who returned to the sport following Liberty Media’s ‘6.4billion takeover last January, has promised to create beautiful cars, closer racing and fiercer competition.

One key feature of the proposed cars will be the increased diameter of the wheels, from 13 to 18 inches, in a bid to make it easier for drivers to race. The prototype is in its third stage of development, and, in conjunction with the FIA, the sport’s regulator, the drawings released on Friday are those of more than a year in the making.

2021: A first look at concepts for F1’s future

Style and substance. F1 has been working with the FIA and the teams to create a Formula 1 car for 2021 that delivers better racing and has the looks to match. The design will continue to evolve over the next year but here’s a first look at the concepts that will shape F1’s future’

Ferrari have taken the fight to Mercedes this year, with Red Bull getting involved and fighting for top honours, too. And F1 is working on a design for a future car that will increase the chances of great fights, all the way down the field, every year.

High on the agenda, then, is a solution to allow cars to follow each other more easily, which in turn should increase the opportunities to overtake. But there is also a desire to have cars that look so good, kids want to have posters of them on their walls.

Italian Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton wins frantic race at Monza as Mercedes outsmart Ferrari on their home turf

Reigning world champion seized the lead with eight laps remaining after clashing with Sebastian Vettel on the opening lap

Pole-sitter Raikkonen looked set to win his first race in more than five years – and Ferrari’s first in their homeland since 2010 – but Hamilton executed a brilliant pass on the Finn with just eight laps remaining.

Vettel, who fell to last after his coming together with Hamilton, recovered to finish fourth, but the German is now 30 points behind his championship rival. Valtteri Bottas completed the podium places.

Vettel was at his commanding best seven days ago to win in Belgium, but he was on the back foot from the start here after his critical collision with Hamilton.
