Formula 1 2017

What's new for 2017?

A lot! Faced with criticisms about a lack of drama, the Formula 1 Strategy Group sat down in late 2015 and created a set of rules to make racing more exciting. The process started last year with more noise from the very often criticized V6-hybrid powertrains, but the big changes come into force this year.

Although the new rules are fairly wide-reaching, they can be summed up in one word: wider. Tires are now 25 percent wider and the cars have bigger wings and an enlarged rear diffuser that should produce more downforce, which means quicker lap times and much more difficult driving conditions for drivers.
