With the 2017 season of F1 finished all the lights are already on the 2018 campaign. A year that could call the evolution and refinement of the competition after the strong change in the technical regulations imposed last year. In the the cars increased their pace on the curve thanks to their greater width. Also of tires, returning much of the physical demand and driving experience lost in recent years. This was intended to equalize things among the favorites, and although Mercedes managed to maintain its hegemony in the hybrid era. Ferrari could approach and create some doubts in Brackley for 2018.

Formula 1 of 2018

Thus, much of the public hopes that teams like McLaren and Red Bull can cut differences with the star. That Ferrari takes the final step and can fight for the title with more conviction. The aim was to increase the fun on the track. Something still has a lot of work to do in 2018. The FIA will make a series of important changes in this regard, as well as safety and clarity of the competition.

The Halo arrives

Without doubt, one of the points that will mark the next season will be the introduction of the Halo as a safety element for the head of the pilots. He arrives with many detractors, with Hamilton in front, and poses as the main aerodynamic challenge for the teams. Which have already started working on the Abu Dhabi tests in several solutions to reduce the air resistance of this element?

New tires

Pirelli was too conservative in 2017. Its different soft compounds were, paradoxically, too hard. Thus, in addition to including the new super hard and hyperactive bland the Milanese firm will make its entire range of compounds a softer point than those of 2017. The hyperactive bodies would be up to two steps less hard than the previous ultra soft ones. This, coupled with Pirelli will be much more aggressive. In their tire, choices for each Grand Prix could expand the range of strategies and generate more excitement in the pit stops.

In 2017, each car could assemble 4 units throughout the year of each of the elements. That formed its propellers. This meant that teams such as McLaren or Renault customers suffered many penalties when exceeding this limitation. In 2018, the restriction will be worse decreasing the number of allowed elements of the power unit for the whole year to 3 and even to only 2 in the case of the MGU-K. The electronic controls the energy management unit. Motorists should invest more in reliability and less time in the pursuit of power. It will make it difficult for Renault and Honda to reach Ferrari and Mercedes in performance.

End the mess of sanctions

The FIA wants to put an end to the doubts that generated in 2017 in relation to the starting grid by the sanctions of more than 20 and 30 positions. That occurred on numerous occasions. For this reason, in 2018, the driver who has 15 or more penalty places will be located directly at the bottom of the grid. In the event that several pilots coincide, it will be the order in which said sanctions occurred that marks their final position.
