Formula 1: Comparison of cars
Every year, millions of fans of Formula 1 racing are waiting for the start of the season. But long before the first official starts, a huge amount of attention is paid to Formula 1 cars, which are gradually modified both externally and internally. The fact is that the organizers of the Grand Prix Formula 1 from time to time change the requirements for the design of cars. This is designed to enable designers of sports cars to improve their vehicles. As a result, the races become spectacular, and the Formula becomes more popular. We offer you a comparison of the cars of the season 2015 with the new cars of 2016, which were prepared by the teams to participate in the new season of the current year.

Here is a new car Ferrari SF16-H.
Before you car Williams team code FW38. In addition to some changes in appearance, the car received a new gearbox, new deflectors, a new body structure that better protects the rider in case of an accident.
The old RB11, which represented the Red Bull team in Formula 1 racing in 2015, is a thing of the past. Meet the new car code RB12, which will participate in the 2016 season. Outwardly, the two cars are virtually indistinguishable. But this is not surprising, since the chassis of the cars of the Red Bull team is one of the best among all the cars presented in the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
The only thing worth waiting is the change in the technical characteristics of the power unit.
Here are two cars – 2015 and 2016. But even with a careful study of the two cars, even a specialist will be hard to see the differences between the cars VJM08 (2015) and VJM09 (2016). The only thing that strikes you most is the nose of the car.
Renault R.S.16 is the successor to the Lotus E23 car, which was bought by the French just to create its own race car for Formula 1 racing.
The youth team of Red Bull this year will fight for the victory, using the car STr11, which is equipped with a Ferrari engine. Recall that the previous model (2015) was equipped with a Renault engine.
The front of the new car, the MP4-31, is the slightly redesigned front end of last year’s MP4-30 model. The new model has increased ground clearance, both in the rear and in the front.
Manor MRT05, unlike its predecessor MR03 (2015), is a completely different car. So MR03 was equipped with a Ferrari engine, while the 2016 car was equipped with a Mercedes engine. Pay attention to the new car. Its front end is much longer than the previous generation of the car.
The new C35 sports car (pictured below) is a technological development of the last generation of the car. The aerodynamic concept was revised in the new car and the transmission was modernized. In general, special attention was paid to reducing the weight of the car. Unfortunately, the car was completely ready very late, so for the first test rides, which took place in Barcelona this year, the Sauber team used the old car.
Before you, the representative of the Americas Formula 1. This is a VF-16 model. Why we do not compare this model with the previous generation. But the past generation was not. Here is a recruit at the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
