A concept idea created by F1's managing director of motorsport Ross Brawn has been leaked across social media platforms ahead of this weekend's Singapore race weekend.

"If this is the Formula 1 of the future, count me in!" enthused the Austrian. And even if the event was closed to the public, images showing the racer did surface online.

The concept image with the Ferrari livery boasts of several design differences over the current F1 auto.

But the sport could be set for a completely new revamp in three year's time after plans were revealed to introduce concept cars for 2021. For the 2019 season, F1 already announced a simplified front wing with a larger span and low outwash potential, a simplified front brake duct with no winglets and a wider and deeper rear wing. "F1 is the pinnacle of motorsport and the vehicle should look sensational".

Ross Brawn revealed a look at how an F1 auto could appear ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix. "They look better but there are a lot of technical reasons why we want them", Brawn, said. The images show cars with much simpler front and rear wings and a more attractive-looking halo as those at the top look to make the racing closer, but the changes haven't been to the liking of everyone.

"The prime goal of what we are doing is to try and produce cars that are more raceable.at the moment we've got designs that only lose 20 per cent of their performance".

"We've been working on the new auto for over 12 months now", Brawn said.

"We see it in other forms of racing, but they are often categories with fixed designs and everyone races the same auto".

"With the current cars, when they get to within two to three auto lengths, they can lose 50% of performance, the tyres degrade more and it becomes very challenging".

Of the three, the third concept is the one most closely related to the current F1 cars, with the other silver vehicle (Concept 1) representing a more futuristic ideal - see the cleaner halo incorporation and more intricate spoiler.

"I'm definitely going to be driving if cars look like this".

How do we want to continue to develop cars that are lovely for the public? Still, I am curious how hard the notoriously change-resistant teams will push back in the coming months before Brawn finalizes the 2021 rule book. I think it's the first time Formula 1 has majored on these aspects.
