New F1 Rules

Formula 1 often makes changes to its sport in order to take advantage of the revolutionary technology that lives in its automobiles. This year, the most drastic changes were made since the introduction of the turbo power units in 2014. These steps were taken to increase the competitive nature of the sport. Most of these adjustments are restrictions on how teams can stock up on power in their vehicles, making it a more level-playing field for all manufacturers. Changes to the cars were made with two goals in mind: making the cars faster and more difficult to drive. Tire size was increased to be 25 per cent wider with a slightly larger diameter. This change will increase speed when turning corners by approximately two seconds.Other major changes include larger parts of bodywork, including front wing, rear wing, rear diffuser, side pods and in the maximum weight allowed in the vehicle.The German Grand Prix is no longer on the schedule, dropping the season total to 20 races this year.
