Formula 1 2022: Dramatic New Cars Revealed

Formula 1 will be carrying out its 73rd running of the Formula One World Championship, which is recognized by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). Formula 1 is widely recognized as the world’s most prestigious motor racing competition and the world’s most popular annual sporting series since 1950. It has always sought to innovate and constantly push ‌technological boundaries in order to find the quickest route towards victory. 

The 2021 season was a roller coaster with unexpected twists and turns to bring unalloyed joy to the fans, with Max Verstappen becoming the new champion representing Red Bull. The drama came not just as the result of talent but because of the gap between Merced and Redbull. The new season in 2022 brings the biggest regulation change since the start of the 2014 season. The 2022 championship is expected to see the introduction of significant changes to the sport’s technical regulations.

These changes were intended to be introduced in 2021 but were delayed until 2022 because of the outburst of the COVID-19 pandemic. All the drivers and teams are scheduled to compete for the titles of World Driver’s Champion and World Constructors’ Champion.

The regulation change has been devised in order to increase the quality of racing in F1. The return of ground-effect aerodynamics is designed to allow drivers to follow one another more closely and encourage more intense wheel-to-wheel racing, while a five-inch increase in the width of the Pirelli size is part of a plan to allow drivers to push harder for longer.

The countdown has to get fans ready for the new cars and the incredible year ahead and reports have revealed that the 2022 Formula 1 calendar will be the largest ever, with 23 Grand Prix, starting on 20 March in Bahrain.

F1’s newest cars will get their opening running at the first pre-season test, taking place over three days at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain from February 23-25. A second three-day test will follow this in Bahrain from March 10-12.

Haas was the first to unveil their 2022 challenger, the VF-22, and was brought by Alfa Romeo from their C42 bedecked in a special testing livery. The American-owned outfit now has a more updated front wing and nose, with a detached mainplane set ahead of the wide stub-style nose to help drive flow to the body. This revelation was followed by Red Bull’s RB18, which caught many eyes and was brought out by Verstappen. Red Bull is hopeful that the all-new aero regulations for 2022 will give it a good opportunity to go for the championship again. 

Mercedes W13 faced the biggest change in ‌aerodynamics with narrow side pods and wide side channels. Ferrari F1-75 has a largely similar design as the last one, with a predominant red body complemented with black colour.

The MCL36 comes with a slight apparent undercut which creates a great volume for the airflow to expand into, accelerating the flow all the way down to the sides and filling the low-pressure areas created by the expanded space. The Alpine A522 will look completely different over the season’s opening two races. The French team will flip the red and blue combination to blue and pink in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The livery Alpha Tauri are going with for 2022 is mainly similar to the design from last time out, with an upper white blue colour block topping a field of navy which drops towards the nose. However, Aston Martin’s AMR22 is to have some significant alterations with a brighter green body with lime green dashes.
