Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Rules and Regulations for 2022

Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Rules and Regulations for 2022

As Formula 1 is one of the greatest motorsports in the world, it is also quite specific in its rules and regulations to keep everything in check. The norms of the F1 race make the racing competition even more competitive. Hence, let’s go through this important yet interesting list of technical rules introduced in 2022 to enjoy watching race matches with a better understanding.

  • New Car Design with Ground Effect

In previous F1 competition seasons, the lack of catastrophic downforce loss resulted due to the dirty air coming from the running car on the track. To address this issue, all 2022 F1 cars will be designed by the F1 motorsports team in collaboration with the FIA, with a strong emphasis on ground effect, an aerodynamic phenomenon.

Under the specified regulations, all the new F1 cars have an enhanced design with better tyres. The addition of wheel covers has been given to reduce the dirty air invasion from the leading car. 

    • Each F1 car has to follow the guide of cars’ engineering rules. 
    • F1 has created a blueprint for motorsports teams to strictly adhere to.
    • The complete body of the car is designed simply with a large fraction of the downforce formed underneath the car with ground effects.
    • The ground effect feature will help create an aerodynamic grip on the track through which the leading cars can easily follow the other cars on the track. 

F1 Wheel Covers Have Returned

    • The wheel rim covers were last seen in F1 in the year 2009, which is now back on track in 2022. 
    • As a cost cap measure, the wheel covers are made necessary for all the participating teams. 
    • Also, wheel covers have been made mandatory as a part of the F1’s most recent deal with BBS (official wheel rim supplier).
  • Over-wheel Winglets

    • The over-wheel winglets are to be seen in 2022 F1 cars for the first time in F1’s history. 
    • This new feature of over-wheel winglets will help reduce the lift force nearing the front tyres, steering it away from the rear wings.
    • Fulfilling the purpose, these winglets will be more aerodynamically flexible while close-chasing.
  • 18-inch Low Profile Tyres are Now Available

    • Pirelli, an Italian tyre manufacturing company, has decided to fit all the newly designed 2022 F1 cars with 18-inch low profile wheels.
    • The main purpose behind  Pirelli’s decision to feature 18-inch tyres is to control the overheating of the tyres while they slide.
    • Also, these lowprofile 18-inch tyres will help in close racing on the track.
  • Redesigned Rear Wing and Front

    • The purpose of the rethought front wing is to produce consistent downforce while chasing the other closely on the track and ensure that the front tyre wake is well-controlled and manages the car in the least disruptive manner.
    • The edges of the front wheel are curved on both sides for tougher resistance. 
    • The rolled tips on the rear wing have made it higher and wider.
    • The higher scoop diffuser, along with the new design on the car’s rear wing, ensures that the turbulent air is closely directed down the side of the car, resulting in cleaner air for the car leading behind.
  • Use of Sustainable Fuel in F1 Cars

    • The power unit of all 2022 F1 cars is the same as that of the 2021 season.
    • It is believed that the power units of F1 cars will soon be replaced with sustainable oil, E10, to control the carbon footprint. 
    • Currently, F1 cars run on fuel containing 5.75% bio components, but this will soon be replaced with E10, which contains 10% bio components.
  • F1 Car VAR System

    • The International Automobile Federation has introduced the new virtual race control feature to prevent race stewards on the track from dangerous incidents and penalties. 
    • Just like VAR (virtual assistant referee) in football, this feature will remotely assist stewards in making quicker yet smarter decisions on incidents. 
    • Because the FIA has prohibited team radio communications to the stewards, this feature will aid in keeping the stewards safe on the track.
  • New Race Directors at the Grand Prix

    • After the 2021 finale fallout at Abu Dhabi, Michael Masi was removed from his role as he had been serving as the race director for the Grand Prix for up to 2 years. 
    • The FIA has introduced two new race directors in charge: Eduardo Freitas and Neils Wittich. Both of them are well-experienced race directors as they have previously served in the same role at the World Endurance Championship. 
  • The Latest Car Safety Procedure

    • The method of restarting the race has been changed after the safety car procedure. In the previous seasons, the safety car was withdrawn after one lap of the last car unlapped by the captains themselves. 
    • As per the new rules, the safety car in 2022 will be withdrawn one lap after the instructions have been made.
    • There are some minor alterations introduced for shortened races as well. Short races will end at 50% or 70% of the full distance. 
    • Instead of 9 points, the fourth position will now get 10 points. Just like that the seventh position will now receive 4 points instead of 5. The new points allocation is 19-14-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1
  • Financial Regulation Amendments

There is a new budget cap introduced by Formula 1 Abu Dhabi, which is $140 million. The budget cap for 2022 has gone down as compared to 2021, which was $145 million.
