In 2017, Formula 1 begins a new stage through a renewed technical regulation. The new cars have higher downforce and grip, which makes them faster when cornering, while making them more difficult to drive and requiring greater physical preparation from the drivers. Next, the most relevant changes ...
Pirelli tires for 2017 are 25 percent wider than before. The front ones go from 245 to 305 millimeters, and the rear ones, increase from 325 to 405. Also the diameter is slightly higher. Compounds will continue to be hard, medium, soft, supersoft and ultrasoft, although somewhat different in their manufacture, something that makes them more durable. This will allow riders to be more aggressive and less concerned with saving rubber. These wider tires offer more grip and allow a much faster cornering.
The width goes from 1.800 to 2.000 millimeters, which makes it easier for the length of the front wing to go from 1.650 to 1.800 millimeters.
The height of the rear spoilers also varies. In this case it is reduced from 950 to 800 millimeters. Its width does increase, from 750 to 950 millimeters. In 2017, the shark fins on the engine cover that already appeared in the 2009 season are seen on most cars again.
Due to the increase in the overall dimensions of the cars, the minimum weight required increases this year by 20 kilos, from 702 to 722 kilos.
The limiting token system disappears, allowing teams greater freedom when it comes to evolving their propellants (four per driver for the twenty scheduled races). There will be restrictions on weight and materials to limit to a certain extent the absence of the restrictions generated by the tokens.
The maximum fuel limit that each car can load is increased by five percent and that goes to 105 kilos. But there are new restrictions on the gasoline blends that teams can use. They can only choose five types for the whole season and only two of them can be used in each weekend.
The drivers are solely responsible for finding the exact moment to deactivate the clutch at the start of the Grand Prix. In case of rain, and in order not to detract from the excitement of the starts, there will no longer be a start behind the safety car. If due to poor track conditions the safety car had to intervene at the start of a test, it will wait until the track conditions improve before starting with the set grid.
