How Is Carbon Fiber Used to Make Formula 1 Cars?

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

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.



How Do Formula 1 Race Teams Travel the World?

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

For the first time in Formula 1 history, in 2012 seven races were staged in nine weeks, with a series of three so-called flyaways and races taking place one week apart instead of the usual two weeks. The final Grands Prix were run in Asia, the Middle East and in North and South America. The logistics of the travel of the biggest racing show on earth, were perfectly choreographed.



Why Shorter, Lighter Drivers Have an Advantage...

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

How much does a Formula 1 driver weigh? What is the ideal height? These are questions that have not been heard for a few years in a sport where the best drivers used to be like horse racing jockeys. But thanks to a new technology called KERS introduced in 2009, the question of driver heights and weights came back again - more relevant than ever.



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

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

We generally think of car brakes as designed to make a car slow down. But in Formula 1, the first thought of the drivers and engineers is how to use the brakes - like almost every other one of the vehicle's 3,000 parts - to make the car go faster.



Many Women Work in F1; Why No Women Drivers?

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

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.



What is Formula 1 Racing?

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Formula 1 is the most popular form of world motor racing. It is also at the pinnacle of motor racing both technologically and in terms of the quality of the drivers. But outside its fans, many people do not have any idea of what the difference is between F1 and another car racing series. This story will lay out that difference between F1 Grand Prix racing and the other series.



The Art of Racing in the Wet in Formula 1

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

In Formula 1, wet races have always played an integral role not only in the action, but in race results, championships and the reputations of drivers. In fact, wet races are usually so exciting that the series has sometimes considered flooding tracks to liven up the show.



Formula 1 Qualifying System Explained

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Formula 1 qualifying is a unique system of grid designation unlike any other in motor racing. After five seasons of incessant changes, the sport has finally found a system that works - well, almost.



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

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

It used to be that the man who scored pole position was almost certain to win the race. But now in Formula 1 the value of the pole and qualifying in general seem to have diminished as the fastest drivers have rarely been those who finish the race in the top spots.



Formula 1's Kinetic Energy Recovery System

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

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.



The Subtle Game of Race Strategy in High-Speed...

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Formula 1 is not only the most advanced form of racing technologically, it is also the most advanced in terms of race strategy. Which tires to use, how many pit stops to make, how much fuel to put in the car before the race - these are all elements that a team's strategist calculates to know how best to tackle a certain race track.



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

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

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.



How Formula 1 Drivers Start Out and Why

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

For many of the greatest F1 drivers, the rise to the top involved first joining a smaller team where they completed something of an apprenticeship in a racing job that compares to none other in its physical and mental demands and intensity.



Lewis Hamilton: McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 Driver

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Lewis Hamilton's rise to the pinnacle of world motor racing is a story unique in the history of Formula 1. After years of proving to be one of the fastest, most successful drivers in the lower series the young British driver joined the illustrious McLaren Mercedes team in 2007 to become the first black driver in F1 history. He won the drivers' title in 2008, to become the youngest ever winner of the title.



F1 Grand Prix Race Timetable of Events

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Although Formula 1 Grand Prix races always take place on a Sunday, there is a lot more activity than that surrounding a race and extending a week around the event. From the arrival of the motor homes and cars and garage equipment to the arrival of the drivers themselves, there's a lot more to it than an hour and a half on Sunday afternoon.

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Tony Fernandes, 45, is a Malaysian entrepreneur who was educated in Britain and began his career at Virgin Records and then Warner Music.

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Virtually all of the Formula 1 drivers start out racing as children in go-karts. Karting is the best school for racing because it is F1 in miniature: Competition, mechanics, driving skills, human relations - everything a driver must know to race at the highest level starts at the lowest level. Karting even has its own world championship yearly. Page 6.



Ayrton Senna Profile - Formula 1 World Driver...

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Ayrton Senna won three world championships in the 1980s and 1990s. But his personality, driving style and other results on the track made him be considered one of the very greatest of Formula 1 drivers in history. Senna died tragically in a crash at the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola on 1 May 1994 driving a Williams.



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

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

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.



Formula 1 Tobacco Sponsorship

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

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.



F1 Live Timing

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Formula 1 has amongst the most complex timing systems in motor racing. But the Formula One Management timing tool, once mastered, is also one of the most useful ways for fans, teams and the F1 drivers themselves to see who is doing what at a Grand Prix race. The screen with live timing is found at the circuits and on the Formula1.com web site. Here is a precis based on FOM images and explanations of how it operates.

2016-09-27T11:21:54Z

Aerodynamics on Formula 1 cars is a science of gaining the most grip through using the wind. Unlike with airplanes, the wings of a racing car push the car down to the track, not up in the air. The effect allows a car to slide less and turn a faster lap. To develop the best aerodynamic grip possible, F1 teams use a wind tunnel.
