The new F1 2021 rules that are worrying Mercedes most

With so much carryover from F1's 2020 rules for 2021, it should be another Mercedes walkover, right? However, there are enough changes that have caught the attention of F1's dominant team, and some key areas it needs to put a lot of effort into - as well as new rules in place that will ultimately restrict it in some of the areas it has been able to excel in recently. As Scott Mitchell explains in this video, Mercedes probably won't trip up, but it will have to change a few things about the way it works at the very least.

The only sport that punishes the most innovative in order to keep bleeding money of companies whom dont have the funds to be competitive and shouldnt be there. Every other competition the most innovative a rewarded. This past decade has put the corruption on full show and created a soap opera instead of competition.

Merc worried. I believe there 2021 car was built to 2022 budget cap so there a year ahead of the game already.

Absolute bullshit. Mercedes are not worried about anything, they are just sandbagging by pretending they are worried.

So you begin with saying Mercedes might lose and then spend half the video explaining how they've circumvented the impacts of the rule changes for 2021. You're rebutting your own video in the same video, guys.

Delete Mercedes from F1! It’s obviously unfair what happened in the last few seasons and it will continue without drastic actions.

The F1 years go by. F1 progresses on its strange incestuous journey believing it is offering spectacle and excitement when in fact it provides a self serving menu for itself. Boredom for its young public is mostly assured. I hail from the Silverstone days of the 1960's, a cruder and indeed more dangerous time, but at least the teams were not constricted by commercial self interest. One cannot easily stop technological progress, and that has become the F1 problem. Perhaps the use of skinny cross ply tyres might be the way forward?

No sport is entertaining when it is dominated for many years by one team. F1 is a high speed parade.

Although RedBull has the best driver in the current field, the car from Mercedes is still so dominant there is no chance on a championship unfortunately.

Thus is some serious BS. I mean it's good news for the other teams, but bad for the advancement of technology since the best car gets penalized the most.

Mercedes will have 1 or 2 cheats to give them an even bigger advantage. FIA will then say as of the year after its not allowed so others can't copy it.

Unfortunately, the superiority of Mercedes is hurting the sport. Russell's performance is only evidence needed--car took him from 19th place to what should have been a 1st place. Changes need to be more drastic, more like American Football.

We should be betting how quickly Mercedes will wrap the title up. I reckon it will be all done by Hungary. Mercedes should be winning every race. The teams with Mercedes customer engines will be given engine modes when it suits them to challenge RB and Ferrari. Nice to know somethings never change.

soooo what i heard was "they will be 3s faster per lap than anyone as opposed to pathetic 2s from 2020 season". Also if anyone gets in front of them by some miracle Lewis can complain (again) that their tires were not pumped enough :)

I hope this cost cap forces Mercedes to get back into sportscars and Le Mans! WEC is far more exciting - and if there was a top class for LMH cars in Europe that was a copy of IMSA would be fantastic. People would watch sportscars alot more if some races were only 2+3 hours long instead of 6+ hours. IMSA is the best racing in the world right now.

I thought F1 was all about delivering the best - best drivers, best power unit, best chassis... yes Mercedes wins and wins a lot. Why do all these trolls and the guys making this video slam Mercedes - isn’t a better matter to make McClaren, Ferrari , Williams, Red Bull do better? Not Mercedes fault that the other can’t match them so why does Mercedes have to be handicapped? That is so messed up just because idiots of the sport want closer racing... so messed up....

I've never been less interested in a season than 2021. We already knows it's an easy Mercedes win again, GG. I'd just like to see any other team put on legit consistent pressure on them at the front. Most races now are just Mercedes taking 1-2 lead on lap one, normally from the start, and then off they go. Maybe I should just start watching another series until the Mercedes domination era is looking like it's coming to an end. It's just a bit dull now. It's only the young drivers and midfield racing that'll keep me watching.
