Futuristic Lewis Hamilton F1 Car Rendering Shows Future Of Racing

3D-printed rendering could arrive sooner than you think

  • Dutch designer Andries van Overbeeke gives us a glimpse of the future of F1 in latest rendering


Formula 1 cars are always evolving with teams looking for new and creative ways to shave off a millisecond here and there. Over the years, F1 cars have become sleeker and sleeker as a result, but this rendering takes it one step further.

Dutch designer Andries van Overbeeke who is currently working on designs for the upcoming The Batman movie is behind this rendering of a futuristic Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 car.

If Lewis Hamilton stays around a while longer, he could actually drive a car like this as its designer sees it on a track in a not-to-distant future, or as the designer told Autoblog, “the nearby future”.

The car is wider than current F1 models by about 13 inches, van Overbeeke says. Its wheels, front and rear ends, and brake calipers are 3D printed. The designer says teams could share the designs to reduce costs. A closed cockpit could improve aerodynamics while improving safety as well.

F1 is headed for some massive changes in 2022. There will be a strict spending limit set at $175 million as well as mandatory design changes. This F1 rendering takes into account many of these upcoming changes.

Realistic or not, this F1 render is stunning. Hopefully we see something similar in a few years.
