F1 fans will get their first taste of the look of 2022, when a full-scale model is revealed at Silverstone this weekend.

Though the 2021 championship is still underway, teams, even the big guns are turning their attention to next season, as the sport undergoes one of the biggest changes in its history.

In a bid to spice up the action whilst levelling the playing field, the aero rules have undergone a massive overhaul, which, among other things, will seriously reduce the effects of dirty air.

Though the first cars won't be revealed until February, at Silverstone this weekend fans will get a sneak preview of the look of 2022.

On Thursday, fans will witness F1 One Begins, which according to the sport's official website, is a "dynamic launch event that will take fans on a journey through the ages before arriving at the most futuristic racing car of all-time.

"Fans will not only get to see a life-size 2022 F1 car for the first time," it adds, "they'll also be talked through the machine's revolutionary design by a panel of experts, who will explain the thinking behind the new concept, which will enable drivers to race each other harder than ever before."

"Best way to spice the racing would be :
1: have no pit stops at all, you start and finish on the same tyres. Currently the tyres are not ever going to be seen as normal, every day tyres
2: all wings must be one-piece, no slats or curved edges"

"@ Hobgoblin....Now you're talking. I would propose having at least two manu's supplying tyres that the teams can pick and choose from. No mandatory tyre compound changes during the race and let the teams mix and match even by car if possible. Why not have the freedom to run Michelins on the rear and Pirellis on the front if that gives a team the best results.? Freedom of choice from these fake tyres we have been seeing for years and years. On my current car I run P Zeros on the rear and Yokohamas on the front. The best of both worlds but they could easily be other makes as well. It's what works best that counts...in the real world."

"..and can we have some tyres that will let the drivers push to the limit for as long as their stamina or reliability of the cars allow.
Please.

"I am quite excited to see for the first time an image of what may be the real thing. To date the renderings have looked very very good and not before time. The current crop of cars are, to put it bluntly, ugly. Once the design is in place then we need an engine that not only does the business but sounds like the real thing and not a bucket of nut and bolts being shaken about behind a heavy duty cloth curtain. Maybe that's being greedy but one can live in hope....it's cheaper than dope!!! "
