Formula 1 fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the new car generation from 2022. How do Mercedes, Red Bull & Co interpret the new technical rules? Who visually surprises and stands out with special tricks? Various private artists give a first taste of the model released by Formula 1 in 2021. Could the race cars from teams like Ferrari or Aston Martin actually look a bit like that? Who knows. But the pictures are always a good introduction. Motorsport-Magazine.com presents selected computer designs by designers such as Olcay Tuncay Karabulut and DiegoJI Design.
Aston Martin was the first team to announce a presentation date for its new car on February 10th. Is that what Sebastian Vettel’s new AMR22 might look like?
The new work tool of George Russell and Lewis Hamilton (if it emerges from the obscurity again) was to be named W13 in 2022 – and again be a real silver arrow.
At least a semi-genuine silver arrow, according to this design. In any case, there are many accents in an unusual shade of green. It does not have much to do with Petrona’s colors – the main sponsor has nevertheless been replaced by a prominent F1 partner. Of course only artistic license, no indication of anything.
Last year’s big rival also comes in a futuristic finish. Maybe a test coat? Red Bull already had a lot up their sleeve in the past.
But we question such a prominent Honda sponsorship. And that frontend? Man, it’s powerful!
And here RB18 in the usual matte red and blue dress. Especially the start number stands out here. World champion Max Verstappen has already announced that he intends to exercise his right to # 1.
From an angle above, the curved, solid rear wing is particularly comfortable.
The rim covers also look very cool here, while the cooling gills on the engine cover are aggressive.
A highlight every year, of course, is the Ferrari. This design already takes into account the return of sponsor Santander. Mission Minnow is no more.
Also clearly visible on the Ferrari model: the new 2022 covers for the 18-inch rims, which are also new. In the background we can still see something like a bargeboard. However, this may no longer exist in 2022.
However, we like the solution to the nose better here than at Red Bull. More elegant, but admittedly maybe a bit beaked.
Seen from behind, the 2022 rear wing without clearly defined end plates looks particularly good on the Ferrari model.
The front wheels covered by wings are clearly visible in this design of Alpine.
The rear wing works – unlike the Ferrari – but still in 2021.
A very special treat at the end: A McLaren according to 2022 rules, but in the famous Marlboro design from the days of Ayrton Senna. Can you do that? But it hardly happens.
To conclude and classify, here is how Formula 1 and the FIA envision the cars from 2022 – broadly speaking.
No bargeboards, a curved rear wing, 18 inches, rim covers and everything very clean. How close to reality is it? #Wait – after all, now less than a month.
