Doug Nye: The InterContinental Formula ‑ when regulation changes bred failure

Whenever a major change in Formula takes place it is always accompanied – amongst enthusiasts – by a special frisson of anticipation. This year’s Formula 1 cars are going to look distinctively different from the sleek  if bulky – projectiles to which we have become used over the past three or four years. The cars will look even larger – though hopefully not simply great and  with their fatter tyres and wider wings, mounted rather lower at the rear, but early driver reaction is that they “go like dingbats” which considering 2016 norms is quite a substantial claim.
