Video: How fast are new 2022 F1 cars compared to 2021?

Mar 24 2022

The Bahrain Grand Prix was the first race of Formula 1’s new rules era, and offered the first chance to answer a question pondered by many: how do the new cars and their predecessors compare?

The final part of qualifying gave the best opportunity to do that, with cars on low fuel and fresh tyres and their performance fully unleashed.

With the help of a 3D animation from Crashalong, take a look at a direct comparison between Charles Leclerc’s 2022 pole position lap and Max Verstappen’s from the 2021 weekend – and what each tells us about the new and old cars.

What are the reasons for the differences in laptime, and should similar gaps be expected throughout the season? All is explained in this video.
