The FIA and Formula 1 have unveiled the future direction of the FIA Formula One World Championship, with the publication of a new set of regulations that will define the series from 2021 onwards. Taking a holistic approach to the future success of the pinnacle of the sport, they are targeted at promoting closer racing and more balanced competition, as well as bringing economic and sporting sustainability to Formula 1.
Inspired by the new regulations, McLaren has used its 2019 livery to provide a captivating take on what its 2021 challenger could look like, with the team’s iconic papaya and blue colour scheme adorning Formula 1’s vision of the future.
Andreas Seidl, Team Principal, commented:
“We welcome the publication of these new regulations. We have been consistent in our support of the direction both Formula 1 and the FIA are giving the sport and today is a positive step forward. We believe these rules will help reset the sport to make it more competitive and so win new fans and partners, while making Formula 1 more financially sustainable for everyone.
"It’s worth reminding that these images are mock-ups featuring our current 2019 livery placed over the top of a generic model provided by the FIA to all teams, so this is not what the final iteration of the MCL36 will look like in 2021.”
