Laurent Mekies supposes that Formula 1 cars may not differ from each other much by the start of the 2023 season.
The new generation of F1 cars will look significantly different from last year’s challengers because of the revised technical regulations. However, there will be a lot of restrictions in terms of design. That’s why Mekies states that the cars may look similar in the near future.
“There is less freedom, definitely. We are all excited, because it’s going to be completely different compared to . But how different the cars will be from each other? We will see,” the Ferrari racing director said.
“I think the first go at it, we may see enough difference to our liking, all of us. I think the first go at it, you say: ‘OK, that’s not too bad.’
“But then I think the question we all need to ask ourselves is once six months have passed, and more importantly, once one year has passed, so once you have redone your car for 2023, will we all turn out to have exactly the same?
“I’m not telling you that it’s not enough yet. I’m just telling you, let’s have a good look, including the media and, in early 2023, to see if there is still enough differentiations and room for teams to make a difference.”
