2022 cars only slightly slower says Symonds

Formula 1 cars may not be as slow as some feared in 2022. Championship leader Max Verstappen admits he will miss “the laptimes and the speed”. But what he will not miss is that “you can’t follow each other” with the current generation of cars. However, F1’s chief technical officer, Pat Symonds, has played down earlier fears that the 2022 cars will be many seconds slower per lap. “We can imagine that the new cars will be on average only half a second per lap slower than the current ones at the beginning of the season,” he told Auto Motor und Sport.
