How to IndyCar from the 90s: Adrian Newey formula 1 criticized rules

Red Bulls legendary formula 1 Designer Adrian Newey has practiced in an Interview, sharp criticism of the new rules, which will be introduced in 2022. Originally, the Reform of the regulations should have come already, 2021; due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but large parts of it have been moved to 2022.

Newey finds that the first studies of the future formula 1 cars "like an IndyCar from the mid-1990s," look. The aerodynamics will down reduced, in order to reduce the air turbulence for the following car ("dirty Air").

But the way that Overtaking should be easier, with the Newey does not agree: "There are many other ways to achieve this," he says in the Podcast of the British magazine 'Motor Sport'.

"We have this very restrictive set. I think that is fundamentally the wrong approach," criticizes Newey. "I'm not sure whether you will achieve what you want them to reach. But even if These rules are an incredibly inelegant way of doing this."

Newey fears for space for creativity

The 61-Year-old mind, that the creativity of engineers is constrained by increasingly restrictive rules on and on. This will cause the cars resemble visually like an Egg in the other, he feared.

"From a spectator point of view, the cars look very similar. The will be identical. It then goes just to the bottom of the front wing or under the floor. No one can see. But that's exactly what will account for the Performance differences."

Newey, as his former rival, Ross Brawn Would have the opportunity to shape the formula 1 regulations, he would choose a different approach. In the king class costs must be saved, for it is undisputed. But the go on other way.

For example, Newey proposes to prohibit the expensive wind tunnel usage is simple. Then each Team should be allowed to perform only a certain number of Updates, in the production of Parts to save money. There's a token system in mind for him. Otherwise, he wants a fairly open rule book.

Newey believes: To quickly

decided The regulations for 2022 in any event arose hastily: "Sometimes we tend to rush feverishly on a solution. In the process, maybe we should think more closely about what actually is the Problem. I believe this happened here", writes Newey.

the hoped-for effect, to keep the field closer together, is achieved, he will not believe it. At least not in the first year: "Since the distance between the top teams and the midfield could be even greater," believes the Red Bull Designer.

And as for the Overtaking? This could be "maybe" better, admits Newey. "As long as no one finds a loophole. But there is, in my opinion, other ways to make Overtaking easier," he says.
