Why F1's weird nosecones won't be back in 2015
Of course, the FIA is hardly any more concerned about the visual impact of an F1 car than their manufacturers are, but the motorsport governing body has fine-tuned regulations for next season so that the front sections are safer and provide better impact protection in the event of a crash – something which, let's face it, happens all the time in F1, and often at very high velocities. The upshot is that the cars being prepared for the 2015 Formula One World Championship promise to do away with those awkward nose cones, and hopefully, they'll be easier to look at for racing fans in the process.
Watch the video above with motorsport journalists Peter Windsor and Craig Scarborough for a breakdown of the relevant section of the new regulations.
