Andries van Overbeeke future of Formula One renderings

In 2015, freelance automotive designer Andries van Overbeeke began exploring how Formula One cars could change in the not-too-distant future. His worked earned him a coveted design internship at Bugatti, and he leveraged the lessons learned there to continue the series. The next installment looks at what an evolution of reigning champion Lewis Hamilton‘s number 44 car might look like in, to quote the designer, “a nearby future.”

“I was inspired by generative designs and jet fighters,” van Overbeeke told Autoblog via email. He imagined a world in which a manufacturer of 3D printers becomes one of Formula One’s title sponsors. As a result, parts like the front and rear crash structures, the brake calipers, and the rims are 3D-printed from various materials. Design files can be shared between the teams, and presumably improved by each engineering department
