6 Strange Ways Social Distancing Will Change F1

By Select Car Leasing, 07-07-2020


From pit stops lasting longer to podium presentations taking place on the grid, the Coronavirus pandemic is set to impose severe restrictions on the upcoming F1 season and further into the future when crowds eventually return to the circuit.

On 19th June 2020, The World Motor Sport Council approved new coronavirus-related changes to F1’s sporting regulations. Included in the new rules was guidelines in relation to how many members from each team are allowed on the track at the beginning of the race.

With F1 set to make its long-awaited return from suspension between Friday 3rd and Sunday 5th July 2020 due to the impact of the COVID19 pandemic, fans around the world are eagerly waiting in anticipation for the first “Lights Out!” in over 5 months.

Although fans won’t be able to be present throughout the opening race weekends, Formula 1 CEO Chase Carey recently said that he is optimistic spectators will be able to attend races later in 2020. However, due to the pandemic and social distancing changes made by the World Motor Sport Council to keep participants safe, the sport will look a lot different once fans return.

Select Car Leasing has created a series of renders showing just how social distancing rules will impact Formula 1 once fans are allowed back into racetracks, along with how it will affect this weekend’s race at the Red Bull Ring. Simply use the slider functionality to swipe left and right to compare F1 before and after social distancing rules.
