The future’s already here
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
