Changes in FIA technical regulations:

The FIA has been trying to make Formula 1 more competitive, even though the teams have tried their ways to find the loopholes and take advantages. One of the most controversial of them was the DAS (Dual Axis Steering) system introduced by Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team, which will be banned from 2021. The FIA will be forcing some changes to the barge board, the diffuser and other aerodynamic components to reduce downforce for about 10% to that of 2020 cars.

Safety measures:

Even though there were not any major accidents in 2020 so far until the Bahrain GP, the Formula 1 fans and spectators have witnessed one of the most horrendous accidents of F1 in recent times.

There were 17 races which started from July, creating a lag of about 3 months compared to the usual F1 calendar. It was a tough decision to make, due to the conditions created by the pandemic. The FIA has decided to return to their usual routine and has published a provisional calendar for 2021 which had 23 races so far. If the calendar stays confirmed then it will be the longest Formula 1 calendar ever.

Race tracks:

The 2020 F1 calendar had 17 races in 12 countries, among which 3 tracks were used twice: The red bull ring in Austria, Silverstone in Great Britain and Sakhir in Bahrain. Moreover, old tracks were added newly to the calendar which offered great shows to the fans, specially the Istanbul park circuit of Turkish GP. These are going to create an impact on the track selections in 2021. Fans have been asking to bring back the old circuits for more interesting races..
