Good news for immersion fans. Tested since the 2021 Belgian Grand Prix by the driver Fernando Alonso, the mini-cameras on board the inside of the helmets will be generalized to all the drivers for the 2023 season. The company Racing Force, which equipped certain drivers the last year, confirmed it Monday by press release.
She explains that her cameras, approved by the FIA (8 millimeters in diameter and weighing 1.43 grams), can be installed on the helmets of the 20 drivers in the World Championship. This mini-camera is placed at eye level, on the protective padding inside the helmet.
It remains to be seen how Formula 1 will measure its use when producing the international signal addressed to broadcasters around the world. First element of response during the inaugural Grand Prix of the season, on March 5, in Bahrain.
