2017 sees a new era in Formula 1. The cars are wider, the tires are wider, and there is more advanced aero than in 2016. Last season Lewis Hamilton was arguably the class of the field when it came to qualifying.
One of his pole positions came at Barcelona, site of the 2017 F1 testing. All of the new rules and upgrades allow the new cars to be significantly faster than last years cars. How fast you ask? Thanks to the official F1 Facebook Page you need wonder no longer.
On an unrelated note the cars side by side hearing both turbocharged V6’s run together doesn’t sound that bad. I think the major takeaway isn’t the faster 2017 cars. The logical conclusion here is F1 should bring back V12s.
