Podcast: F1’s new 2026 rules explained + why they’re changing

We provide our immediate reaction to the details of the 2026 Formula 1 regulations released by the FIA ​​today in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Ben Anderson joins Edd Straw to go over the key changes and explain their potential impact, as well as the reasons behind them.

We explain the rule-shaping impact of new power unit regulations, as well as the push to make cars smaller and lighter.

Also delved into are revised aero systems designed to further reduce aerodynamic drift and reduce the range over which the cars have to operate hard and low.

A new 'manual overtaking' effect to assist with overtaking and adjustable aerodynamics are also implemented, along with how effective this new package will be in achieving the goals set by Formula 1.
