The fu­ture’s al­ready here

F1 Racing (UK) - - INBOX -

Hav­ing seen Re­nault’s F1 2027 con­cept car at Sil­ver­stone, you’ve got to ad­mit that it doesn’t look all that much out of place.

The de­sign has a cur­rent look, yet re­flects how rules may be shaped in the fu­ture thanks to its closed cock­pit and re­tractable rear wing. The feel­ing that F1 should re­main open-wheel is re­moved and thus negates the di­vi­sive halo de­bate.

Whether such a vi­sion would ever come to fruition is moot, but from an aes­thetic point of view, it’s got to be worth con­sid­er­a­tion when such mat­ters come up for dis­cus­sion. Michael Bri­er­ley Manch­ester, UK
