Alonso, Vettel question success of new F1 cars

Two world champions have questioned the success of Formula 1’s new-in-2022 ‘ground effect’ technical regulations. It was hoped the new cars would make it easier for chasing cars to follow and overtake their rivals. “The new rules were one of the reasons I came back,” said the two-time champion. There are at most two teams that can win races, as has been the case in recent years,” Alonso said. Most current Formula 1 drivers have also commented that the 2022 cars are not as much fun to drive as their more downforce-oriented predecessors. “The cars are very sluggish in the slow corners,” Alonso explained. “That’s the advantage of hiring Alonso and the disadvantage of losing him.”.
