The 2022 Formula 1 season was characterized by the dominance of Red Bull and Max Verstappen. The Dutchman broke the record for wins in a season in Formula 1 on his way to the world title and also set a new record for most points in a season.
Despite the one-sidedness at the top, ex-Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg praises the new aerodynamic rules in Formula 1, which, in conjunction with the budget cap, should mean that the field will be closer together in the future.
“For me, the year of Formula 1 was so fantastic,” he says in a video on his YouTube channel. “It was such a great season, even though one guy dominated so much, it never got boring. It was just so interesting all the time, so exciting, so many things changed – it was amazing.”
Although the field seemed to have drifted further apart compared to previous seasons – after all, only McLaren driver Lando Norris was the only driver to get a podium for a midfield team – Rosberg praises the work of Ross Brawn’s team, which had been working on this for a long time to reduce the effect of “dirty air”.
“I think the rule changes worked really well to make overtaking easier. We can confirm that,” says Rosberg. “They did a great job led by Ross Brawn so many thanks to Ross and the team for the effort they put in.”
Tire supplier Pirelli has calculated that the number of overtaking maneuvers has increased significantly from 2021 to 2022. In the last season of the old regulations with the wide downforce monsters there were 599 overtaking maneuvers, in 2022 the positions were changed 785 times.
“The number of overtakes [in 2022] compared to , [there were] so many more, and that’s really just a testament to how the new rules are working,” Rosberg concludes.
