F1 preseason testing dates confirmed in Spain and Bahrain
F1 is set to introduce a new set of rules to even the competition — such as budget caps — and the 2022 cars will feature newly-designed front and rear wings and 3D-shaped floors, while Italian manufacturer Pirelli is bringing bigger tires.
Teams ran on 13-inch tires in 2021 and will switch to an 18-inch model. Pirelli boss Mario Isola is confident this will lead to "less overheating, less degradation" and allow drivers to fight harder on track, rather than worrying too much about tire wear.
Mercedes had won the previous seven drivers' and constructors' championships in an era of total dominance.
