McLaren and Force India’s new noses show there is still room for innovation after the FIA moved to eradicate the ugly designs seen last year.
Why do F1 teams spend millions on their cars and then not put enough fuel in them? And could drivers be stopped from using ‘lift and coast’ instead of driving flat out?
The new year is less than three weeks old but the FIA has already tweaked the engine rules twice. Here’s what it means for the teams and manufacturers in 2015.
F1 teams’ different cooling solution highlights a key advantage those who design their own engines – like Mercedes – have over their customer rivals.
Changes in the 2014 rule book aimed to cut how much downforce teams could generate at the rear of the car. But inventive designers are trying to claw it back.
While this weekend’s race at Singapore demands a maximum downforce set-up, in the last two races teams used their thinnest wings in pursuit of higher speeds.
For next year the FIA intends to change rules which created an ugly generation of F1 cars. Here’s how the new noses may look in 2015.
Nose design is one of three areas where the 2015 F1 cars will be significantly different from the current models.
Ferrari show how telemetry is used to help their drivers identify why they are gaining or losing time relative to their team mates.
The F1 season reaches its halfway point this weekend but some teams are already facing penalties for using too many power unit components under complicated new rules.
