What controls the frontline in the latest F1 design tech battles

While the Formula 1 technical regulations have remained relatively stable over the winter, there has still been scope to innovate and find new solutions. Here’s what stood out during pre-season testing in Bahrain as the biggest tech talking points

With Formula 1’s pre-season test in Bahrain now in the books, the 10 new car designs have shared the track together, offering a platform for technical comparisons between them. The direction that most of the field was taking this season had already been seen during their launches, but there were still many questions that needed to be answered in the three days at Sakhir.

Some of those questions are the result of the regulations remaining relatively stable, and how this might lead to further convergence up and down the field. In the areas where the regulations have changed, the teams will be looking to see if they can recover the performance that’s been lost and find workarounds to what the FIA intended.
