2026 cars will be shorter and lighter says Tombazis

Formula One cars “will be shorter and lighter” from the start of 2026, the FIA’s Technical Director Nikolas Tombazis said at the end of the season, in Abu Dhabi. And out of those 200kg, about one hundred comes from the Power Unit. Asked if it would be possible to dispense the current very complex Power Units, Tombazis explained that’s not an option for the FIA: “It it is necessary to keep Formula One relevant to the directions of society. We would want 2026 cars to be quite a lot shorter and probably maybe a bit narrower as well and all of that is going to contain the weight increase.
