"When we started looking at the 2021 auto, the primary objective was to enable the cars to race well together", Brawn said "What we established early on in our research is the cars we have now are very bad in following each other".

A more stylistically aggressive approach, and the anticipated switch to 18-inch wheels in 2021, has also been developed on the concept ideas that was shown on Friday.

Formula 1 has become quite forward-thinking since getting new owners interested in more than just sucking as much profit out of the sport as possible. "Once the cars get within a few vehicle lengths of each other, they lose 50 percent of their downforce".

The most notable change in all three concepts is the introduction of fairings near the wheels to improve the airflow, with cars for 2019 already set to include changes to the front wings based on similar principles.

They have been compared to models seen in racing video games, and it will be noticeable that the vehicle is more of a solitary structure without multiple elements sticking out of place. How do we want to maintain F1 as a pinnacle of motorsport?

Concept 1 is meant to show how the new cockpit halo can be better integrated into the car's overall design.

"I am pretty optimistic that we will produce some great looking cars and they will be able to race each other much more effectively than they were in the past".

The second concept focused more on the aerodynamics by simplifying the various appendages - all part of the goal of making overtaking easier.

"We're listening to what the fans want, we want to engage with their passion, we want them to feel that Formula One is listening to them".

"I'm definitely going to be driving if cars look like this". "The encouraging thing when Force India ran into trouble was that it had a number of suitors that wanted to buy it".

Brawn is also hoping that the concepts will encourage teams to stay in F1 while also inspiring new teams to join the sport. He believes that this idea can mature as it is worked on over the next few years. I think the confidence in F1 has since increased.

"Teams are now involved in this", he said.

"They look better but there are a lot of technical reasons why we want them", Brawn, said.

"We're short of engineers of the future. F1 is a great opportunity to promote technology and through F1 in Schools, for the younger students, then there's Formula Student, which is a competition that goes on in universities".
