F1's 2019 aero rules explained

Ahead of the full revamp of Formula 1's aerodynamic regulations coming for 2021, the series has opted to introduce a few short-term changes to try to improve the racing in 2019. Pat Symonds explains exactly how this will work.

Formula 1 has long been resistant to change, a situation that was brought about by a perverse governance system, variable amounts of disunity between enfranchised bodies - and, most importantly, teams that guarded perceived competitive advantage to an extreme degree.

The past twelve months have brought a sea change in this situation. Firstly the governing body and the commercial rights holder are aligned in the desire to bring entertainment back to racing and the teams are also seeing the merit, both from a financial and a sporting viewpoint, of providing closer and less predictable racing.
