At last, the vision of Formula 1 2021 looks a little clearer in the crystal ball.
After plenty of behind-closed-doors wrangling and gamesmanship among the championship's teams and officials, there is now more than just a proof of concept. To the relief of many, the anticipated wide-scale changes for the 2021 season have now been signed off - and F1 will evolve dramatically at the close of next season.
In a pre-US Grand Prix press conference, F1's motorsport managing director Ross Brawn - sharing the table with CEO Chase Carey and FIA technical director Nikolas Tombazis - presented not only the new style of car that will take to the track, but also F1's new flavour. In doing so, he also took a few carefully planned swipes at the previous management's direction.
