Why Shorter, Lighter Drivers Have an Advantage...

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

How much does a Formula 1 driver weigh? What is the ideal height? KERS technology makes short, lightweight drivers more relevant than ever.



Many Women Work in F1; Why No Women Drivers?

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

In what is essentially considered a macho sport, there are a few women who are breaking the mold in Formula 1, where, as is the tradition elsewhere in auto racing, they usually occupy marketing, media relations and hospitality jobs. While more women than ever work the technical jobs to make the cars go fast, the one area where they are still absent is behind the steering wheel.

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

In 2009 as part of Formula 1's effort to become more environmentally friendly and relevant, the series began using a Kinetic Energy Recovery System to collect energy normally wasted during braking, and to re-use it in short bursts of power to increase speed and help in overtaking.



How Is Carbon Fiber Used to Make Formula 1 Cars?

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

A revolution in racing car body materials in the early 1980s led to the standard Formula 1 racing car chassis of today. No longer made of a metal, today's F1 cars are made of an ultra light and strong plastic-like material called carbon fiber, which used to be more associated with the aerospace industry than with racing cars. Formula 1 engineers have become so adept at working with carbon composite materials, however, that other industries now turn to it for advice.



F1 Brakes Are Designed for Speed, as Well as...

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

How Do Formula 1 Race Teams Travel the World?

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

Racing Technology Versus Driver Strength

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

How Formula 1 Drivers Start Out and Why

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

Not Very Sexy on the Outside, but the Life of...

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

Car engines hold little interest for most people. Even Formula 1 fans generally prefer to talk about a sexy new aerodynamic wing on the chassis than a modified piston. Yet in the words of Rob White, the director of the Renault team's engine department, it is the thing that turns the sleek, inanimate racing car into a vital force.

ABC's of a Formula 1 Driver's Physical Fitness

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

Formula 1 drivers undergo physical demands in the cockpit of a kind that no other athlete faces. G-Forces throughout an hour-and-a-half race make their heads four to five times their regular weight, and they must make split-second decisions that could cost them or others their lives while enduring intense heat, humidity and vibrations from the engine and the track.



Formula 1 Tobacco Sponsorship

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

It was as recent as 2007 that Formula 1 saw the last of the tobacco advertising that had funded the series' racing for 40 years. But it immediately found other sources of sponsorship.

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z

Alain Prost, a Frenchman, was the first Formula 1 driver after Juan Manuel Fangio of the 1950s to win four world championship titles. Fangio had won five titles, ending in 1958, and no other driver did better than three until Prost won his fourth title in 1993 at the Williams team. Prost was particularly famous as one of a dueling tandem, the other of whom was Ayrton Senna, who won three titles.

Qualifying in a Formula 1 Race Not What it Used...

2016-12-09T11:16:16Z
