The ex-pilot Minardi, Jaguar, Williams and Red Bull Racing mark Webber believes that the power of the engine will become an even more important factor in terms of the new regulations in 2017.
Wider cars with wider tyres will pass circles for four or five seconds faster. This will mainly be achieved by increasing the speed of cornering.
In comparison with 2016, the minimum weight of cars will increase by 26 kg. Webber is confident that this will contribute to an even more important role of engine in the season of 2017.
“Machines will have greater levels of downforce, so the new level will be released, and the power, – quotes Webber AUTOSPORT.com. – In terms of the wider tires and greater the level of drag you need the most powerful unit.
Despite the wide tires, the cars will become heavier, which will lead to slowdown”.
Mark, who spent 215 F1 Grands Prix, is sure that the increase in speed will play into the hands of the activities in the field of entertainment.
“F1 should be better if we talk about the sports component: the cars will go much faster than in previous years – continued the Australian. – The riders finally again begin to work for their money. They will again climb the podium in a sweat which is great.
The lap will return to the level of a decade ago. From the point of view of an observer it will be interesting.”
