F1 2022 Championship: what changes in the regulation

Year after year, the F1 World Championship changes and improves, in the continuous search for adrenaline and emotions to give to all motorsport fans. The 2022 edition also continues in this vein, with the introduction of new aerodynamics and regulations, some of which are truly revolutionary.

The first and perhaps most evident is the return of the ground effect , that is an aerodynamic modification of the cars aimed at increasing the importance of the road surface while driving, favoring duels and head to head. Another big leap forward is the tire change , with Pirelli saying goodbye to the 13 ” tires to launch the 18 ” ones . And the tires will also be the protagonists of another change compared to the recent past. Unlike in 2021, in fact, the first 10 drivers on the grid will be obliged to use the same set of tires in qualifying (Q2) in the race . Therefore, at the start the single-seaters can be equipped with tires chosen ad hoc. Finally, the novelty regarding the minimum weight of the cars , which rises to 795 kg , a good 43 more than the 2021 Formula 1, deserves to be highlighted.
