2015 Formula 1 season

Formula 1 is one of the best sports ever! But also one of the hardest. Driving more that 200km/h more than 2 hours, is something what only specific people can do. But, I believe that Formula 1 was much better in the past. The teams had much bigger freedom for researching and improving their cars, but now, there are many regulations, too many actually.

The new season will start in Australia on March 15th, and this will be 66th season in history. There are no big changes in teams. Honda is still the biggest engine supplier, and they will supply McLaren this year with a new engine. Lotus ended its deal with Renault and for this year it will use Mercedes engines.

Although teams stayed the same, there are some new regulations. So in this season teams can use four power units, the engine development is reduced again, ‘’nose’’ of the cars will be redesigned and the weight of the cars is increased to 702kg. Because financial problems with some teams, FIA approved usage of 2014 specification chassis, although this request made by other teams was rejected on February the 5th.

The sporting regulations are basically the same. The biggest changes are: the double points at the end of season will be no longer rewarded, virtual car is introduced (there is no safety car, but drivers have to follow the speed shown on their steering wheels) and in case of serious accidents cars will go in the pit box. And, they will leave the pit box in the same order as they got in.
