F1 2022 cars "biggest regulation change" in 40 years - Newey

Red Bull chief technical officer Adrian Newey believes the 2022 regulation changes are the biggest seen in F1 for almost 40 years.

The aerodynamic structure will radically change from next season as F1 attempts to close the spread between first and last on the grid and promote more exciting racing action.

A demonstration car debuted at last month's British Grand Prix with only finer details expected to differ between each individual team and its interpretation of the rules, although there is believed to be a wide scope for development.

Speaking on the Talking Bull podcast, Newey insisted the second half of the season will be a balancing act between the race for the title and next year's development.

"The second half of the season is obviously a huge load on the race team itself in terms of the travel and time away from home and so forth," said Newey. "It is a strain on the factory in terms of consumption of parts.

"The last two races have been a drain on the battery because of the amount of accident damage we have got to contend with.

"In terms of the development of the car, the number of races doesn't significantly change it.

"The big balancing act we have got now is we have got this huge regulation change for next season, I would say the biggest single regulation change we have had since the old ground-effect venturi cars were banned at the end of 1982.

"So it really is an enormous change in every sense of the word. The only thing that really stays the same is the power unit, everything else is different."
