"When we started looking at the 2021 vehicle, the primary objective was to enable the cars to race well together", Brawn said "What we established early on in our research is the cars we have now are very bad in following each other".
Three different concepts have been revealed.
Formula 1 has become quite forward-thinking since getting new owners interested in more than just sucking as much profit out of the sport as possible.
"The current cars lose up to 50 per cent of their performance once they get to within one or two auto lengths. which means they struggle to race each other", added the Briton. "We've got cars now which will maintain 80 percent, so a substantial improvement". "It frustrates me when a auto in a video game looks better than a vehicle that we're racing out on the track", he added. "F1 is the pinnacle of motorsport and the vehicle should look sensational", Brawn said.
However, whatever look the sport decides on, Brawn admits that the powers-that-be are hoping it encourages new teams into the sport, while ensuring the current teams remain.
There are for now no official details on the design of the new vehicle, but the one in Ferrari livery pictured on the wall behind Brawn does show some differences when compared to the current design, including 18-inch wheels, revised front wings and rear endplates that arch around the wheels.
"As time has gone on, another of the primary objectives was to make great looking cars". It turns out that 18-inch wheels actually do look pretty damn good.

The Koreas will be able to "directly discuss issues 24 hours, 365 days", Seoul's Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon said. The office will be co-headed by Vice South Korean Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung and a deputy head of Ri's committee.
"So the prime goal of the work we are doing is trying to produce cars which are more raceable".
The third concept (below) is the most current but there are still a lot of interesting ideas that have come out of the research that haven't yet been brought to life by the artist.
"I'm not going to pretend from day one that we will have the ideal solution, certainly from the aesthetics, because try as hard as we can we cannot anticipate every move the teams will make", he said. "The encouraging thing when Force India ran into trouble was that it had a number of suitors that wanted to buy it".
"We want to create an environment where there is a queue of people wanting to join F1", he admits.
"In doing this project, we recognised there are some features that benefits come from the nature of the flow that comes off the vehicle in front and the sensitivity of the auto behind to that", Brawn said". If you remember Manor a few years previously couldn't sell the team.
"But there is no guarantee and I think the key thing is to be able to respond quickly when we see things that happen that are unintended. But we are quite encouraged with the cooperation with the teams at the moment and that will change of course at some point in the future when they move into a competitive mode rather than a cooperative mode". "F1 is a great opportunity to promote technology and through F1 in Schools, for the younger students, then there's Formula Student, which is a competition that goes on in universities".
