A few months ago, we showed you the video that explained all the changes coming to Formula One cars for 2017. It showed the new vehicle next to the old one, making it simple to understand what all was changing.
In general, everything will be wider this season, making for the much-better-looking car. Aesthetics aside, F1 organizers also claim the new vehicles will cut five seconds off of each lap, making for much-quicker racing.
Recently, Red Bull Racing released the video that breaks down exactly how each change contributes to the improved lap time. Widening the front and rear tires, for example, should give the vehicles more grip and allow drivers to brake later and accelerate sooner in the turns.
The lower, wider wings will also work with the grippier tires to let the vehicles corner at significantly higher speeds.
Red Bull even claims the corner that could previously be taken at only 105 mph can now be taken at 130 mph. That is ridiculous.
Check out this video to see how the rest of the changes are expected to improve F1 racing, look for the 2017 season to kick off March 26th.
