New Rules Regarding Cars

F1 fans will notice new rules introduced by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and Formula 1 regarding the construction of the front and rear wings of the cars. According to the official F 1 rules, this is to “help chasing drivers follow the car in front more closely – and in turn increase the possibility of overtaking.”

Commenting on the new rules, Rolex brand ambassador and multiple Formula 1 race winner, Mark Webber said, “The new regulations are designed to encourage drivers to get into a position to overtake. The cars should be more predictable, meaning the drivers will be more confident about creating exciting passing opportunities. There’s definitely a lot to look forward to this season and I think there will be a good fight for the championship. I hope it goes deep into the year – I really believe it will.”

Along with Mark Webber, other F1 drivers that serve as Rolex brand ambassadors include 2016 Formula One World Champion, Nico Rosberg and three-time Formula One champ, Sir Jackie Stewart.
