"There once was a time when the racing world was ruled by savage beasts."
This is part 2 of a project where I explore the design, proportions and regulations of Formula 1 in the near distant future. For part 1 see my Williams 2017 concept.
A short metaphor about my vision behind the project:

There once was a time when the racing world was ruled by savage beasts. They were captured just before the snowy season, when brave men had one winter to tame these creatures. After months of championship battle, a handful of the best animals were kept for another winter of training, while the others were set free.
The mixing of the creatures in the wild with their variety of genes gave rise to diversity at all levels. Every hunting season new species were discovered, with unseen traits that were often remarkable and sometimes invincible. We have all heard the myth of the hexapod.
But somewhere along the way, things changed. Once beloved peculiarities were now seen as monstrosities. The eccentric ones became freaks, and were put down and hunted down until none were left. These days only one species is left, living in standardized cages.

We must set them free. Legend goes that in the remote untraveled fields, savages still roam.
This great image was made by my brother Marco van Overbeeke. Check out his remarkable skills.
I would like to thank Heriberto Maruzza for providing amazing CAD files of F1 wheels. Although modified they gave me a great base & reference.
