Dutch designer envisions what Merc F1 cars could look like in many years’ time

Remember Dutch designer Andries Van Overbeeke? Back in 2015 he penned a series of sketches that showed us what 2017’s Red Bull F1 car could have looked like.

Needless to say, his wide-bodied, fat-tyred vision was far more exciting than what we got in reality.

Now though, Van Overbeeke is back, and this time he’s taken on the challenge of redesigning the best F1 car on the grid – Lewis Hamilton’s no.44 Mercedes.

Just look at that. What a thing. The most obvious change is the use of a glass canopy over the cockpit rather than the current halo safety device, but there’s also big wheels, a sculpted rear wing and seriously swoopy lines.

What do we think, Internet? Reckon anything like this could make it to a race track near you in the future?
