Formula 1 2014: Sculpted from scratch
- From the section Formula 1
Actor Idris Elba narrates BBC Sport's opening sequence for the 2014 Formula 1 season which sees the sport go back to the drawing board and start from scratch following the biggest car regulation changes in a generation.
Engines have turned from 2.4-litre naturally aspirated V8s, which have been in use since 2006, to 1.6-litre V6 turbos, along with radical aerodynamic design changes which stipulate front and rear wings on the cars should be narrower.
BBC Sport's F1 analyst Allan McNish explains the new rules with some help from Lewis Hamiton and Nico Rosberg.
