Revealed: 2022 F1 car in Aston Martin Racing Green

Formula One has unveiled the 2022 car at Silverstone ahead of the British Grand Prix, and now we're giving you an exclusive look at how our livery would look on the next generation of Grand Prix racers.

Drivers have already given their first impressions of the 2022 car, with Lance Stroll saying: "It's different, and simplified around the bargeboard areas. It's going to help racing and allow us to follow closer."

In a livestream event called F1 One Begins, the championship gave its most detailed look at the new regulations yet.

Formula One began the new car design back in 2017, completing 7,500 simulations and exploring radical concepts, such as a car without a front wing, before arriving at the final concept.

Set to enter competition next year, the new-generation cars are designed to create more exciting racing, with close attention paid to advanced aerodynamics, despite a sleeker and more simplistic design.

Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team began working on its 2022 car early in 2021 and has continued to develop its challenger alongside the current development of the AMR21.

The team continues to reinforce and strengthen its factory operation to maximise the opportunities of Formula One's next-generation ruleset, including the building of its brand-new base.

Ahead of the 2022 car hitting the track, we've applied our 2021 Aston Martin Racing Green livery to the 2022 design to give you an idea of our striking identity for the next era of Formula One.

Ground effect returns for the first time since the early 1980s as Formula One seeks to generate significant downforce from the underbody of the car, rather than through complex bargeboards, to help cars follow more easily.

Formula 1 Managing Director, Motorsport, Ross Brawn said: "It feels like a very long time ago since the FIA officially unveiled the regulations for the future of the sport, but after the one-year delay due to the pandemic, it's only 170 days to go until the start of 2022 when we will see the next generation of Formula One cars take to the track.

"There is huge excitement ahead of this new era, and while 2021 has been a great battle, we still have cars struggling to follow each other during the race.

"The regulations for 2022 will address this problem and create an opportunity for closer battles and more wheel-to-wheel racing.

"The combined effect of the new aerodynamic regulations and financial rules, in the form of the cost cap, will create the conditions for a more balanced championship and for the gaps across the grid to close."

The 2022 formula also includes a switch to 18-inch Pirelli tyres, which first took to the track competitively in Formula 2 last year.

While the move will slow lap times, Pirelli is providing a more road-relevant tyre, challenging designers and drivers due to the less forgiving nature of lower sidewalls.

Demonstrating the power of its new design, Formula One believes a 2022 car will have 86% of its total downforce when within a car length distance of a rival ahead, compared to 55% in a previous generation machine.

There is continuity on the engine front as Formula One continues with the V6 turbo-hybrid power units.

Gearboxes are also frozen, while the new machines are designed with the cost cap in mind to ensure cost-effectiveness.

Advances in areas such as biofuel will also help Formula One push for greater sustainability.
