This feels like the year when everybody seeks to turn the page and write a new chapter. This is how I imagine the atmosphere in the offices of the FIA and Liberty Media after having miraculously delivered last season in very difficult circumstances.
These two main stakeholders in Formula 1 have also defined a new strategy to try and enhance the spectacle of motorsport's top category. And this year we will see the outcome of what was initially announced at the end of 2019.
The new vision is well-known: ensuring a closer, fairer and more exciting sporting spectacle. At a very high level we will see significantly less downforce, heavier vehicles and (allegedly) slower tyres. Hence, in absolute value or, for the more technical enthusiasts, the dynamic of the centre of mass will certainly exhibit a higher lap time with all the competitors.
