2017 Formula One Season: What We Know and What We Expect


 

 

So, we have seen 1/5 of the 2017 Formula One season and we at REVVING-IT-DAILY have to say, we were thrilled by the action so far. Pretty safe to say that, for the first time since, I don’t know, when was the last time F1 got us on the edges of our seats? Oh, right, the last time F1 had a titanic battle was- um…

My Tifosi heart was broken into 9,974,973,261,982.008 pieces at that moment

IS THAT [TIMO] GLOCK? IT IS! OH MY GOODNESS ME!

-Martin Brundle, 2008

Ah, 2008. That year was going well for basically every single form of motorsport that existed that year. Until, of course, the men in Armani suits with Bvlgari perfumes and Gucci loafers at the market exchanges crapped themselves and may have slightly caused what is going to be known as The Great Recession. FIA were also affected by this indirectly, as the manufacturers and other entrants started to pull away from the sport and causing some series to be either postponed or folded.

Formula One in 2008 was an example. In 2008, new regulations were announced for 2009, and I was one of those people who absolutely loathe to my death that new design which are narrower than flower shops in Hong Kong alleyways.

This looks more like a glorified Formula 4 car

The narrow-body era also saw a new chapter in the 21st century era Formula One, that is a one-team domination. Of course, the average millennial F1 fans would say that Ferrari also had a dominant moment. They did, but at least they had a great fight with the Renaults and McLarens.

These new dominators were more dominant than the Lucchese crime family in the 1978 Lufthansa Heist. You can literally predict correctly who was going to be crowned the champion of that season with only watching 3 rounds! Or even less!

To give proof, here are the Constructors’ Champion of each narrow-body year

  • Brawn GP – 2009
  • Red Bull Racing – 2010
  • and again – 2011
  •  another one – 2012
  • you guessed it – 2013
  • Mercedes AMG – 2014
  • new dominators again – 2015
  • still the same – 2016

However, all of that is looking to be set to come to an end with this year’s super-wide body regulations.

Now, let’s get analyzing.
