Next year Formula 1 is undergoing some serious changes. Like some of the biggest changes the racing cycle has had since the 50s. The new cars will feature new engines, different aerodynamics, and a new energy recovery system. Thankfully, BBC and Ferrari have each put out a video to explain the changes. 

Ferrari handles explaining the new engines. The biggest switch is from 2.4-liter V8 engines to turbocharged 1.6-liter V6s. These new engines will be 10 times as powerful as the old ones. 

BBC also explains the new engines (excuse the redundancy) before covering the body changes. The front wings will be narrower, the chassis and nose lower, and the rear wing box smaller. 

You may not understand the physics behind these changes, but you're a hell of lot better off now than you would be poring over the rule book.
