Return of ground effect in 2021 to make “massive” difference to overtaking | 2021 F1 season

Formula 1 will reintroduce ‘ground effect’ aerodynamics in 2021, a change the sport’s technical directors believe will make a “massive” difference to how easily cars can follow each other.
The FIA’s head of single-seater matters Nikolas Tombazis said the purpose of the changes is to make it easier for a following car to stay close to a leading car.
“The first part of the objective is to improve the wake [from] the front car so the rear car doesn’t suffer so much performance loss,” Nikolas Tombazis explained.
