1000bhp and fat tyres for F1™

The F1™ governing body is set to make sweeping changes to the sport from 2017 onwards. With the quieter and far less ostentatious current V6 engines comes universal disappointment in the overall thrill of a Grand Prix race. The high-pitched scream of an F1™ car has been replaced with a pleasant but far less exciting rumble.
The current tyre situation is also set to change. With the Pirelli contract nearing its conclusion. the Italian tyre giant is keen to move into the next generation of the sport. Already testing has taken place to replace the longstanding 13" tyres with a much larger 18" variety. A greatly reduced sidewall height is much more in-keeping with the modern road car and will allow for massive technological breakthroughs to pass down from the top of the sport to the street motorists.


In order to keep up with the increased power to the wheels, the rear tyres are also set to get much wider too. Expect significant bodywork changes to accommodate engines and tyres!
