Next year, in Formula 1, the technical regulations will change significantly. At the last presentation of the car for the 2021 season, Alfa Romeo Technical Director Jean Monchaud said that the team is betting on 2022 in the hope of closing the gap …
Jean Monchaux: “We are focused on preparing for the 2022 season, when a real revolution will take place in Formula 1. We will have a completely different car – this is a great opportunity to make a leap forward, reducing the gap with the leaders.
The less effort we put into a 2021 car this year, the more attention we can put on the car for next season, especially given budget constraints.
I do not think that these restrictions will affect the competitiveness of teams in 2021, since they were introduced after the completion of work on the current machines. Of course, during the season, some improvements are possible, but since the regulations have not changed much compared to last year, I do not expect major changes in the balance of power.
We will see a definite effect in 2022, when all teams will develop cars within budget constraints. I think this will lead to a reduction in the gap, although the full effect will become evident in a few years. Big teams not only have more money and more employees, but also a technological advantage that will have an impact for several years to come.
Plus, we mustn’t forget that budget constraints don’t apply to the powerplant, the heart of the car. Those with the best engine will benefit. However, I am confident that the gaps will narrow in two or three years. ”
