    you have so many wrong information about the last car. 1: it was first introduced in 2010, with the X2010 car. 2: It can reach 450-480 km/h 3: The car concept is not an improvement of formula one, it was gran turismo and red bull idea to make a racing car without regulations, and they thought of this 3hp per kg car with a massive fan to make huge downforce

    "concept vs reality" "'A business idea may or may not be a business opportunity'". The Ferrari "Sigma" tells a lot now in 2021 and for future racing now.

    Ferrari Sigma impression to me is a Kart with stretched front bumper and aerodynamic addition, longer wheel base, have a cockpit since the tyre is bigger than kart, and rear wing. It basically good replacement for karting imo

    why do F1 cars need to be electric?? I understand and support that regular cars need to be electric but a F1 which only used on track its a little stupid

    Funny thing about the Sigma is that it sports the same colours that Ross Brawn chose for his team. You have to wonder if he thought of it when creating his team due to losing most of the sponsors of the previous team Honda.

    I really don't think everyone is expecting a closed cockpit soon, by that I mean this is the first video I've ever seen that's mentioned it as an expectation in f1

    They really should do an F1 Concept Racing series... The only 'rules' are the power-plant (no more than 1.5l, must be totally 'green' etc) and of course comply to ALL safety requirements. The innovations that would come from this sector and potentially filter down would be incredible. ABS for example came from F1 but now with so many rules, restrictions etc, its hardly the pinnacle of innovation...

    Closed wheels kinda suck tho... It reduces the risk of losing a tire when racing too aggressively.

    Is that the voice of Simple History?

    I think by the 2050s, Formula 1 will be racing hovercrafts. F1 is going total scifi in design, just like the racing games we have on our consoles and PCs.

    Wait a minute, is this the voice from simple history?

  • TZA

    People really think it's better for the driver to risk his life at every crash for a thrill in their spine than to see him live and race more times in his life ? Come on guys, if the drivers feels safe under a transparent sheet of polycarbornate don't you think they would fight more fiercely and overtake with more confidence? Idk man i see it as a win-win situation if they added a closed cockpit

    At the beginning, they said that Mclaren has been struggling for some time. I feel that the team has been on an upward slope and they have been getting better ever since 2019.

    Well the only reason i dont watch F1 is because all the cars just looks the same and its simply uninteresting.If these cars would make it to F1 with some regulation on horse powers and downforce but allow them to change design i would watch F1 Everytime.

    The Tyrell wasn't the 'one and only' 6 wheeled car. Many other teams tested the idea, March and Williams being the better known. It was, however the only 6 wheeled care to race. So, sorry yank, it was NOT the one and only 6 wheeler. Perhaps more research is needed!

  • BobbyT223

    Why do car companies think tires will have lights in them in the future? It’s not gonna happen. It’s economically stupid. Don’t give tire companies a reason to charge even more than they already do

    The 6-wheeler only looked like a bust because the tyre supplier refused to make them good tyres.

    Mounting a wing on top of the driver and calling it safe, that's Ferrari for you. Clueless!

    Was this video made in 2018? Because a lot of the facts are just outdated and wrong. For example: That McLaren isnt doing very good now and that ferrari is the team everyone is trying to best.

    I wish Renault would ‘invest’ time, energy and $$$ into their passenger car lineups… here in the U. S. they were never successful.

      @Miguel Laurito they're pretty successful in South Asia too with their partnership with Mahindra

    • Miguel Laurito

      ? They're successful in Europe and South America. They probably know that the american market is over saturated.
