We’re living in an incredible era of Formula 1. Much as many lament the loss of the V10 and V8 screamers, these hybrid V6 turbo powerplants are extraordinarily powerful, versatile and technically complex. Their performance is reflected in the platforms in which they’re mounted, which use some of the most sophisticated materials and techniques of airflow manipulation yet seen. This year, they’re simplified, though the rules now emphasise the weaponisation of their underfloor, perhaps the most potential-laden surface in motorsport aerodynamics.
