2019 front wing: unveiled in Hungary

Force India and Williams have provided a glimpse into the future of Formula 1 racing after revealing the new 2019 front wings in Hungary.

In a bid to improve overtaking opportunities and allow cars to race closely to each other, Formula 1 is introducing a more simplified and standardised front wing for the 2019 season.

Under the new regulations, the complex front wings currently on show will be a thing of the past as elements such as fancy endplates and flaps will be removed.

The front wing itself will be 200mm wider and 25mm deeper in the hope that drivers can race closer for longer with each other and not get disturbed as much by the dirty air generated by the car in front.

As a result of the regulation change, teams are using the in-season test in Hungary as a chance to collect their first bits of data on the new front wings.

Force India gave the first sneak peek:
