Fans of Formula 1 are in for a big change in 2022. During the British Grand Prix, F1 unveiled how next year’s cars should look, leaving drivers and teams captivated.
Red Bull‘s technical director, Adrian Newey, believes that the changes will be the biggest seen in the sport in the last 40 years.
“The second half of the season is obviously a huge load on the race team itself in terms of the travel and time away from home and so forth,” Newey told the Talking Bull podcast. “It is a strain on the factory in terms of consumption of parts.
“The last two races have been a drain on the battery because of the amount of accident damage we have got to contend with.
“In terms of the development of the car, the number of races doesn’t significantly change it.
“The big balancing act we have got now is we have got this huge regulation change for next season, I would say the biggest single regulation change we have had since the old ground-effect venturi cars were banned at the end of 1982.
“So it really is an enormous change in every sense of the word. The only thing that really stays the same is the power unit, everything else is different.”
