In partnership with the FIA, the sport is working on new concepts for future regulations and in unveiling images of those plans, Brawn says the biggest focus is on ability to race and aesthetics. When you get into that condition where you're two or three vehicle lengths behind, then you're losing grip, the tires degrade more, and it becomes very challenging.
"With the current cars, when they get to within two to three auto lengths, they can lose 50% of performance, the tyres degrade more and it becomes very challenging".
Whilst drivers are focusing on the Singapore Grand Prix due to take place on Sunday, those behind the scenes in Formula One have presented the auto model designs that are set to be used in the 2021 season. We want cars that look better than what you see in a video game, cars that kids want to have up on their walls. We've had a designer working with the aerodynamic group, so as we've progressed. "But I want exciting-looking cars". Concept 2 is a bit more extreme than 1, described on the F1 site as "more refined and stylistically more aggressive".
"The primary thing we're doing is trying to reduce the amount of performance lost to a following auto", Brawn said. Notably, the concept also features 18-inch wheels instead of the current 13s.
F1 has been working on a new auto design for about a year, the 63-year-old former Mercedes and Brawn team boss said, collaborating with governing body the FIA and the teams on alleviating the problem whereby a vehicle behind another loses a significant amount of its performance.

Encouragingly, the former Ferrari technical director has confirmed that the main aim of the new design rules will indeed be to ensure drivers can follow each other more closely.
Among the things Brawn showed was a rendering of how Formula 1 cars for the 2021 season might look like.
The vehicle not only features 18-inch wheels, which F1 is planning on racing from 2021 onwards, but a simpler overall design.
I don't know about you, but I love the way these three ideas look. The new IndyCar is quite good in that respect, and we've been sharing some information with IndyCar on their experiences.
'As time has gone on, another of the primary objectives was to make great looking cars. I think it's the first time Formula 1 has majored on these aspects.
