FIA set to alter nose regulations for F1 2015


Following the complaints from many F1 fans in regards of the dreadful front nose in this year’s F1 cars, F1’s governing body, the FIA, is set to tweak Formula 1’s nose regulations ahead of the 2015 season.

FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting, has hinted that this ruling is set to change in the near future. He said “We can ensure more symmetry by not only prescribing a maximum deviation but also prescribing a minimal one and by not only increasing the surfaces that matter for the height of the car,”

“We can also make sure that these surfaces go further back. This should prevent these radical transitions.”

No thanks to the strange regulations that instructed all front noses to be no more than 185mm above the ground has caused many of the F1 cars looked like it came from a botox nose job that went bad. So far the Mercedes team has the best looking car, followed by the Ferrari team – a smart move by their design team to avoid the dreadful lower pointy noses as seen from other teams.
