By on

After covering the extensive 2014 regulation changes that mark a major change in Formula One, Red Bull Racing and Renault F1 have explained things further in two remarkable videos.

A new animation by Red Bull Racing, featuring Daniel Ricciardo gives a quick overview of what has been changed on the cars, explaining that regulation changes have mainly been designed to reduce downforce and aerodynamic complexity, in favour of intensified hybrid drivetrain possibilities.

Renault F1 Sport, engine supplier to 4 Formula One teams, goes further and gives a proper insight into the various modes the new power units can operate in. The company correctly indicates that one of the major challenges for 2014 is making the turbocharged internal combustion engine work together with the electrical energy systems.
