Before the new Formula 1 season starts the all-important test sessions take place. In 2017 F1 will introduce its biggest overhaul of aerodynamic regulations in nearly 20 years. The key changes are:

  • Wider cars, with the distance between the outside edges of the tyres increasing from 1,800mm to 2,000mm
  • Wider tyres, front tyre width will increase from 245mm to 305mm and rear tyre width from 325mm to 405mm, allowing for increased mechanical grip.
  • The front wing will be widened from 1,650mm to 1,800mm.
  • The rear wing will drop 150mm in height and its overall width increased from 800mm to 950mm.
  • Bodywork will have a max width of 1,600mm (currently 1,400mm) with reduced exclusion zones allowing for larger bargeboards. The sidepods will also feature an angled leading edge, which will be inclined at 15 degrees when viewed from above.
  • Weight will increase from 702kg max weight to 722kg max weight plus tyres (approx. 5kg).
  • Faster cars, the FIA claim substantial gains of five to six seconds are expected in 2017 through the ‘aerodynamic rules evolution’.

These changes are likely to result in a major shakeup in F1’s pecking order and it promises to be a thrilling spectacle. All Formula 1 Teams will attend the official pre-season Winter Tests in Barcelona which will be held on:

  • Test 1: Barcelona, Spain – Monday 26th February to Thursday 1st March 2018
  • Test 2: Barcelona, Spain – Tuesday 6th March to Friday 9th March 2018
