There’s talk of Formula One having a radical makeover in 2017, which should hopefully make F1 cars look awesome again. Graphic designer Andries van Overbeeke has already created a number of epic-looking future concepts for 2017 but this latest one for 2019 includes a closed cockpit.
Closed cockpits always throw up and interesting debate, with purists wanting the cars to remain open cockpit, while the FIA often bring up the idea of closed cockpits after serious accidents, as was the case with Jules Bianchi’s Suzuka crash.
The concept is based on a McLaren and as you can see in 2019 they still haven’t find a title sponsor, which seems pretty realistic. Whether Fernando Alonso will still be there by then though is anyone’s guess…
Oh, and it wouldn’t be a McLaren concept without a retro design either would it?
