Formula One Teams Won't Be Ready For 2021 Rules Until 2023

Formula One Teams Won't Be Ready For 2021 Rules Until 2023

Nearly two weeks ago the FIA approved a delay in the new Formula One regulations slated for 2021, pushing the change out to the 2022 season. As teams deal with the loss of revenue from the coronavirus-inflicted mass cancellation of Grands Prix in 2020, the delay was necessary as the cost to develop a new chassis this year would be insurmountable particularly by the smaller teams. Today,...

Formula One Drivers, Soccer Men, And Streamers Are Turning To Virtual Racing

Formula One Drivers, Soccer Men, And Streamers Are Turning To Virtual Racing

It’s 2020, and because we can’t have fun anymore, F1 is either postponed or cancelled , and many of us have gaps in our weekend plans. However, the world of esports does indeed exist, and athletes are becoming streamers on a widespread basis, en masse, to do something to entertain us and pass the time. This weekend, there is no real-world race of course, but that won’t stop drivers...

F1's 2020 Season Is Dissolving

The Monaco Grand Prix is canceled. The central point of the season is gone, as other races also dissipate and next year’s cars, too, are delayed. The 2020 Formula One season is slipping away in coronavirus.

Here’s the Monaco cancellation:

And here’s the official pushback of the rather extreme 2021 rule changes to 2022:

The Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix Will Happen But The Stands Will Be Completely Empty Thanks To Coronavirus

The Coronavirus pandemic has killed thousands already, and it is difficult to understate both its virulence and danger. That’s proving very challenging for event organizers globally, and Formula One is no different. The Bahrain Grand Prix will go on as planned, but reportedly without any spectators at all.

As authorities forbid large gatherings of crowds for health and safety reasons, shows...

Zandvoort Is The New Best Track On The Formula One Calendar

Zandvoort Is The New Best Track On The Formula One Calendar

The Dutch are incredibly good at creating works of art; masterpieces which will outlive their creators. They have done it again, re-building the Zandvoort circuit into something totally unseen in the current Formula One calendar. I can only hope that others will appreciate it in its era, unlike the stunning beauty of a Van Gogh.

We’ve already seen the cancellation of the Chinese Grand Prix at the hands of the disease, and at least three more are in jeopardy of not happening in the near future.

F1's Return To Banked Corners At The Dutch Grand Prix Of All Places Looks Amazing

This year will see the triumphant return of Zandvoort on the Formula One calendar, a venue that hasn’t hosted a race since 1985. In an effort to make the racing more exciting, though, the track decided to implement some banking . And now we’ve got our first view of that banking.

Lando Norris Is All Of Us If We Had Free Rein Of A F1 Team Factory

Lando Norris Is All Of Us If We Had Free Rein Of A F1 Team Factory

There are undoubtedly a lot of perks to being a Formula One driver, but I think my personal favorite has to be that they seem to just get free rein of manufacturer factories. If I had a chance to, say, wander around the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England, I don’t think they’d ever be able to drag me out of it. And in that sense, I am just like McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris.

The F1 Miami Grand Prix Is Getting Sued But It Might Actually Happen

The F1 Miami Grand Prix Is Getting Sued But It Might Actually Happen

The ongoing saga of the Formula One Grand Prix in Miami has been truly mindblowing. With an initial design that looked truly horrible followed by a delay and a relocation , it would be easy to assume the event just isn’t happening . But... it might actually happen. Even if it might get sued first.

To understand what’s next in this very complicated story, we have to step back and look at...

Mercedes's Fancy Steering Is Legal, But Not Legal Enough To Make It To The 2021 F1 Season

Formula One preseason testing is well underway—and so is the drama. All the talk has been surrounding a new innovation by Mercedes called dual-axis steering , or DAS. Basically, by pushing or pulling on the steering wheel, drivers can change the toe angle of the front tires in order to manipulate airflow and downforce on straights and corners.

Two Days Into F1 And Mercedes Has A New Part That Definitely Looks Illegal

Here’s a quick little video of what we’re talking about:

When Hamilton pulled the steering wheel toward himself, Motorsport.com noted that a...

Marbula One Outshines F1 To Become The Pinnacle Of Motorsport

Marbula One Outshines F1 To Become The Pinnacle Of Motorsport

Formula One likes to market itself as the pinnacle of motorsport, but I’m going to be honest: it’s not. It can’t be, not when the beauty of Marbula One exists in this world.

If you haven’t been lucky enough to hear about this beautiful sport, allow me to offer you a brief history. Marbula One is the brainchild of Jelle’s Marble Runs on Youtube, and the concept is simple. Build a track, line up...

McLaren Formula One Driver Lando Norris Isn't Shitting Himself Anymore

Lando Norris is seen today as one of Formula One’s rising stars with a talent far beyond his years. He came second in the F2 Championship in 2018, which prompted McLaren to graduate him from reserve driver status to full time Fernando Alonso replacement. He recently admitted that he wasn’t sure he was ready for F1 when the 2019 season started.

Formula One Chinese Grand Prix Postponed Due To Coronavirus

After some hemming and hawing over whether a cancellation was necessary, the FIA has officially postponed the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix on April 19 as a result of the Coronavirus. And it sounds like it’s going to be a real struggle to actually fit the race back into the schedule at a later date.

F1 has its longest schedule ever this year, with seven back-to-back race weekends. That’s a...
