Formula One 2017 Season

Posted By F1 Fast Lap


The Formula One 2017 season will begin on March 26 in Australia and will conclude on November 26 in Abu Dhabi. It will include five back-to-back race weekends. In 2016, we had 21 races - with the loss of the German Grand Prix, that's now down to 20.

Tyres

In 2017 season the tyres will be around 25 percent wider than in 2016, with rear width up from 325mm to 405, and front width raised from 245 to 305. Tyre diameter has also increased very slightly, though wheel rim size remains unchanged at 13 inches.

Bodywork

  • Front wing





  • Rear wing and rear diffuser


  • Sidepods


  • Weight

Maximum weight of Formula One car for 2017 season is increased from 702kg to 722kg plus tyres. 

Power units

A rule change has been made to prevent drivers stockpiling spare power unit elements. During any single event, if a driver introduces more than one of a power unit element that is subject to a grid penalty, only the last element fitted may be used at subsequent events without further penalty. A number of changes have also been introduced aimed at reducing power unit costs, guaranteeing supply for customer teams, and closing the performance gap between engines:

- the power unit price for customer teams has been reduced by €1m per season compared to 2016.

- to ensure the supply of power units to customer teams, the homologation procedure now includes an ‘obligation to supply’ that is activated in the event of a team facing an absence of supply. 

- the previous ‘token’ system for in-season engine development has been removed.

- Additionally, constraints on power unit part weights, dimensions and materials, and on boost pressure, are being introduced in 2017 and in 2018. 

Other changes

  • Wet-weather standing starts

If a safety car is deemed to be required for the beginning of a race due to wet weather, unlike previously a normal standing start will occur once the track is deemed safe to race. The process will see the safety car return to the pit lane and the cars assemble on the grid for the start. 

  • Helmet livery

Drivers must continue to use essentially the same helmet design at all races for easy recognition of the driver in the car. However, each driver is now allowed to use a special livery at one event of his choosing, such as a home race for example. Drivers will also be allowed to change their helmet liveries if changing teams during the season.

McLaren Mercedes MP4-29 Australian&Malaysian GP Livery

Posted By F1 Fast Lap

Two weeks ago in Melbourne, McLaren said the prominent »Mobil« branding on the sidepods of its 2014 car was a one-off. Now in Malaysia, McLaren's black sidepods are featuring the branding of »Esso«, another ExxonMobil brand.



McLaren 2014 Australian GP special livery as the team was celebrating the 20th anniversary of its relationship with ExxonMobil. 



The Mercedes-powered car launched by the Woking based team and tested throughout the winter was all silver, with »MP4-29« marked on the silver sidepods in the wake of title sponsor Vodafone's departure. Revised bodywork for the MP4-29's sidepods and rear wing, featuring detailed black livery markings with Mobil fuels branding alongside Mobil 1. The relationship between McLaren and ExxonMobil began back in 1995, and acting McLaren CEO Jonathan Neale said it was right the partnership is recognised.
