Some Interesting Facts About F1 Racing

By Unknown - February 05, 2018




Discussing the F1 car is something interesting, a contemporary technological contest of its era. Various engine advantages, performance, aerodynamics, even skill to the technology contained therein.
Here we present various interesting facts, related to F1 Machine and its championship:

  • One of the most complicated parts of the F1 car is the cockpit. You can see the full F1 Cockpit Control here.
  • An F1 race car is the second most advanced technological engine after a fighter. If an airplane uses its wings to fly into the air, the wings of an F1 car are to create a descending force to squeeze heavy cars down to grab the asphalt, and help balance when cornering at high speed. Even in the video above we include events ever taken the documentation, the Battle between the F1 Car and the Fighter.
  • The safety of the F1 race car, is the highest vehicle safety standard of its era. F1 car can hold the driver due to a great collision. The most powerful collision ever experienced by David Purley when appearing at the British Grand Prix in 1977. He was saved and follow racing again.
  • The chassis or main body of the car is very strong, made of thousands of different parts of Kevlar, carbon fiber, steel, and various forms of honeycomb.
  • Formula 1 (F1) car racing comes from the European Grand Prix Motor Racing of the 1920s and 1930s. The term "formula" denotes the rules that the participants must obey. Formula One was agreed after World War II in 1946. The first F1 championship was held at Silverstone, England in 1950, then followed in 1958. The F1 national championships were held in South Africa and Britain in the 1960s and 1970s.
  • Before the new rules applied by the FIA ​​that requires the car engine to be replaced after the use of one week, originally the age of F1 car engine only two hours. Compare with regular cars whose machine age can reach 20 years.
  • The helmet used by the F1 racer is one of the strongest materials in the world. Among the strong evidence is the manufacture must go through the test is heated to 800 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes.
  • F1 racers and mechanics wear clothing made from Nomex, the famous fiber that can survive in 840ºC for 11 seconds. This outfit consists of five layers of anti-flame material that is also used by NASA astronauts.
  • At the time of the race, the F1 car emits flue gas at a temperature of about 950 ° C, which is 50% more than the temperature required to melt aluminum.
  • Until the time this article was created, the most powerful MCLaren F1 car is the 2005MP4-20, which has 920 bhp power.
  • Aerodynamic and downforce design (F1 down) F1 car is very important, even small aircraft can fly at lower speeds than the F1 car. Without good aerodynamics and downforce systems, the F1 car can lose control and there is a wheel spin at a speed of only 160 km / h whereas generally the F1 car has a speed of more than 300 km / h
  • F1 refueling system can supply 12 liters of fuel a second, meaning you only take 4 seconds to fill a public car tank with a capacity of 50 liters. The system is the same as the tool used by refueling US military helicopters.
  • The steering wheel of an F1 driver is able to review no less than 15 important functions of the lights as well as the LCD monitor in the F1 car steering wheel. The existence of the gear, engine speed, speed, and mixture of fuel, and so forth. On the steering wheel is also available radio communication buttons, drinking water pump buttons, as well as the engine and differential engine that is also behind the wheel there is a pedal or lever that serves to shift gear.
  • An average F1 driver will lose their weight as much as 2 kg for one race. Losing weight can also exceed when the race takes place on a hot circuit like Sepang, or Bahrain. After the race, F1 driver will lose weight as much as 4 kg. Therefore, an F1 driver must have a physical or a good endurance and also excellent when the race progresses.
  • Further surprising fact about F1 is to shift gear or gear. Especially at the San Marino circuit, Monaco, an F1 driver can shift gears as much as 3100 times during the race took place. For other circuits, a racer can only do gearshift as much as 2500 times. This is because the width of the circuit is narrow and has many sharp and minimal bends will track the length
