Ferrari thinks it’s time to run the F1, the most famous automobile sports event, back up to the rugged mountain top.
When we think concept cars we are usually imagining something futuristic or a ‘blue-sky exercise’ that screams originality. Get this, the Ferrari Design Formula 1 Concept doesn’t fit into either category. This is Ferrari’s way of saying ‘come again you know-it-alls, referring to the Formula 1’s (F1) Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), sanctioning body.

Ferrari, one of the favorites among the Formula 1 (F1) has one of the most unmistakable easy-to-recognize car brands in the universe. This helps when you are betting on a Formula 1 event, under EU gambling news, to be reassured that the competitor doesn’t know what your favorite team’s engine looks like before the race. For sure, it never ever spends time creating concepts for its street cars for F1.
That said, Ferrari did somewhat reveal the latest Formula 1 concept, asking: “Would it be possible to come up with an F1 car which not only is technologically advanced, but also captivating to the eye and aggressive-looking? And could this be made without having to overturn the current technical rules”?. But to what end?
Ferrari’s got a lot of clout
Of the creation, Ferrari speaks of subtle changes that totally transform, so as to create for want of a better adjective ‘better looking’ and even thanks Ferrari fans for its comments. F1 without Ferrari, is like Crown Resorts without James Packer, so that’s why Ferrari built a mini-site, making public assimilation of a life-like and a totally cool futuristic model, which clearly ignores the current status quo.
And for all that, surely you know that Ferrari doesn’t need your help in building its race cars. Well you did, didn’t you? It’s a political statement at its best. The comments section is not only to let all you Ferrari fans in on the know-how but also specially conceived to tease the overly severe Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), F1’s sanctioning body.
Formula 1 may be earning money and may be one of the world’s most well-known car races, but it’s in a crunch. Most of the competitors may have smooth engines but the cars are like an old man on his way to a EU poker rooms, instead of a super model on a catwalk, which essentially what the F1 is all about, a line-up of outlandish racing cars with a captivated audience.
What’s with the soft motor
Speaking of those smooth and almost-silent engines that are all the rage now, it seems that’s just a plain letdown for F1 fans, whose ears caressed the sweet sound of engines revving and the loud sound of the motors as cars careen around the circuit. As engines are conceived to purr softer, critics think it has led to the F1 losing some of its appeal and what is expected at Formula 1 events.
No matter what the designers say about horsepower levels, aerodynamic restrictions, and tire life, F1 fans are neither happy nor impressed. To get all this done, winning teams spend enormous amount of money in any one season in order to be right up there, on par, with other leading teams. Teams not so fortunate to have all that spending money for a nice overhaul, simply withdraw.
Also, bumpy and aggressive paths have been replaced with circuits you could roll a dice on and get a 6 every time. So it might actually make the circuits a lot safer maybe but no bumps in the road means no thrill in the hearts of F1 fans. We can only wait to see how much impact the Ferrari Design Formula 1 Concept is likely to have on the outcome but there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel.
So, while the FIA is obsessed with aerodynamic nuances and dictates bodywork designs, Ferrari has the courage to stand up and say that the FIA is completely off-track with what F1 fans thrive on: the bizarre and unconventional, that’s really the motor that keeps F1 the epic yearly event that you can bet on in online sportsbooks in The EU and elsewhere.
