In 2021, Formula 1 was supposed to switch to a new technical regulation, but in March last year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was decided to postpone innovations until 2022. According to the Italian La Gazzetta Dello Sport, now the transition to the new regulations can be postponed for another year – until 2023.
The reason for the possible transfer is the new “British” strain of Covid-19. Seven out of ten Formula 1 teams are based in the UK and have already been heavily impacted by local government restrictions in response to the identification of a new coronavirus mutation. As a result, there are already concerns that this could lead to financial losses for teams, and they simply will not have the funds to develop machines for the new regulations.
As the newspaper writes, in February, representatives of the teams, Formula 1 and the FIA will gather for a meeting to determine the next steps.
