2021 regulation changes critical according to McLaren

McLaren CEO Zak Brown believes that the rule changes in 2021 will be crucial to the long term health of Formula One.

Brown admitted he was worried about the two-tier formula that has been developing over the past few seasons. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have pulled away from their competitors and are clear at the top whilst everyone else continues to lag behind.

The regulation changes could bring in a budget cap that many in the paddock consider vital to the survival of smaller teams and for the improvement of competition, with McLaren in need of a return to past glories soon.

"We have a journey to get back to winning races. And once you’re winning races you’re competing for the championship.

"I think it’s critical that Liberty make the changes to the sport that we discussed earlier because right now, the way the sport is going, it’s difficult for more than two or three teams to compete for the championship.

"So I think the things that are out of our control but hopefully we can influence, they need to change for multiple teams to be able to win races and compete for the championship.

"But we have laid out a journey, a message, a road of recovery that sees us getting back to the front of the grid in that time."
