Engines: For a decade F1 cars had run with 3.0 litre naturally-aspirated V10 engines, but in an attempt to slow the cars down, the FÃ©dÃ©ration Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) mandated that as of the 2006 season, the cars must be powered by 2.4 litre naturally-aspirated engines in the V8 en…gine configuration that have no more than four valves per cylinder. Further technical restrictions such as a ban on variable intake trumpets have also been introduced with the new 2.4 L V8 formula to prevent the teams from achieving higher rpm and horsepower too quickly. As of the start of the 2009 season all engines are now limited to 18,000 rpm in an effort to improve engine reliability and to cut costs down in general.. Transmission: Formula One cars use semi-automatic sequential gearboxes with six or seven forward gears and one reverse gear. The driver initiates gear changes using paddles mounted on the back of the steering wheel and electro-hydraulics perform the actual change as well as throttle control. Clutch control is also performed electro-hydraulically except from and to a standstill when the driver must operate the clutch using a lever mounted on the back of the steering wheel. By regulation the cars use rear wheel drive.. Car Construction: The cars are constructed from composites of carbon fibre and similar ultra-lightweight (and expensive to manufacture) materials. The minimum weight permissible is 605 kg (1334 lb) including the driver, fluids and on-board cameras. However, all F1 cars weigh significantly less than this (some as little as 440 kg) so teams add ballast to the cars to bring them up to the minimum legal weight. The advantage of using ballast is that it can be placed anywhere in the car to provide ideal weight distribution. (MORE)
F1 started in Europe before 1945 (World war 1 and 2) the term Formula 1 started to be used in 1946
The pit lane opens thirty minutes before the start of a race, during which time drivers may drive around the track as much as they like, driving through the pitlane each time around in order to avoid the grid. Drivers must be in their cars and in place on the grid by time the pit lane closes at -15:…00; otherwise they must start the race from the pits. Meanwhile, teams may work on their cars on the grid.. At -10:00 the grid is cleared of everyone except team mechanics, race marshals, and drivers. A team will generally want to keep its tyres off their cars and heated in their tyre-warmers for as long as possible, but they must be attached to the cars by -3:00.. Engines must be running by -1:00; at fifteen seconds to the start all personnel must be clear of the track. Two green lights signify the start of the formation lap, also known as the parade lap, during which drivers must remain in the same order (no passing) except if a car ahead has stopped due to a technical problem, or has had an accident. The cars circle the track once, usually weaving from side to side to warm up their tyres, and form up again in their starting positions on the grid.. If, for some reason, a car cannot start the race (engine failure during qualifying or practice, suspension fails, etc), the car can still join the race, but will take a 10-position penalty at the start. For example, if the car qualifies in 3rd, but has to change an engine at any point during the race weekend prior to the actual race, the car will start from 13th position. For strategy's sake, teams will sometimes opt to start a car affected in this way from the pit lane. This means they start at the tail end of the grid; however, they can not only change an engine, but also start the race on a full load of fuel and with fresh tyres.. The race is started by five red lights, controlled by FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting. The lights illuminate one at a time, left to right, in one-second intervals, and then go out simultaneously after an interval of between four and seven seconds. When the lights go out, the race begins. Should the start need to be aborted for any reason, all five red lights will come on as normal, but instead of going out, the three orange lights will flash. All engines are stopped and the start resumes from the five minute point. If a single driver raises his hand to indicate that he can't start, the marshall for that row will wave a yellow flag, then after a few seconds, both the red and orange lights will extinguish and the green lights will come on to indicate another formation lap. Penalties may be imposed on drivers for numerous offenses, including starting prematurely, speeding in the pitlane, causing an accident, blocking unfairly, or ignoring flags of any color. There are four types of penalty which a driver may incur for violation of on-track rules:. The drive-through penalty requires the driver to enter the pitlane, drive through it while obeying its speed limit, and exit without stopping. . The ten-second (or stop-go) penalty requires the driver to enter the pitlane, stop at his pit for ten seconds, and exit again. Team mechanics may not work on the driver's car at any time while the driver is serving the penalty. . A more extreme penalty may be imposed for more severe infractions: adding ten places to the driver's grid position at the next grand prix, e.g. if he qualified in pole position he would start the race eleventh from the front. . The most severe penalty in common use is a black flag, which may be imposed for ignoring penalties or for technical irregularities of any sort; it signifies that the driver has been disqualified from the race and his results for that race will not count toward the championship. . If the black flag is not considered sufficient for the offense that the driver has committed, they may be banned for a number of races after the event. . The most extreme punishment of all (used for seriously endangering the life of another driver) is to be excluded from the drivers world championship that year. Such cases may, of course, also be taken to court. . For the drive-through and stop-go penalties, a driver has three laps from the time his team hears of the penalty to enter the pits; if he does not pit within three laps, he will be black-flagged. If he incurs a penalty within the last five laps of the race, he need not pit at all; instead, twenty-five seconds will be added to his total race time. (MORE)
The F1 cars is made up from composites of carbon fibre and similar ultra-lightweight materials. The minimum weight permissible is 620 kg (1,367 lb) including the driver, fluids and on-board cameras. A detailed discussion is available under "Related Link".
IT is more than 300km/hr! it could be as high as 360 -380 kph depending on there gearing
It is a race car, some of the cars have been converted to legal street cars ( minor changes to make it legal to use outside the track )
No, they don't. Braking at the last possible moment before the turn can be a big benefit for the driver, especially on technical tracks (short straights, lots of turns), and indicating this would give the advantage to the trailing car's driver. The F1 car is, however, equipped with light at the back…, which is only switched on during poor weather conditions or when the pit lane speed limiter is on. (MORE)
A single seater, open wheel, open cockpit race car. The cars are very light and fast, resulting in astounding amounts of acceleration, turning, and braking power. the cars are expensive, run by profesional teams on road corses (not ovals). they are capable of ~800 horspower and 200+ mph. It is the p…innacle of motorsport. (MORE)
They have to weight 600kg. However, ballast weight is added to the cars to get over this weight, as the raw weight is somewhat lower then that (although few manufacturers actually will reveal exactly how much).
F1 Cars reduce friction by having a special sort of tyre that is made of a material that won't stick to the track and that is very thin.
On record it is around 325 km/h but depends on various things like . Drivers ad the car's weights. . Weather . Wind . Track Conditions . Set up of the F1 Car . Driver's style. . Fuel (type and how much)
since 2006 horse power has been reduced from 1,100 to 750 because they are trying to keep the cars at a lower speed
For the 2009 season the McLaren Mercedes team uses an engine supplied by Mercedes. The engine is Mercedes FO 108W. The same engine is being used by two other teams, Brawn GP and Force India apart from McLaren. Mercedes have been the engine suppliers for McLaren for the past few years.
Most Formula One cars have a top speed of over a 300 km/h with some cars reaching 330 km/h in fast straight circuits like Monza, Japan etc. The highest speed ever to reach by an Formula One car is 368.16 km/h and without the wings are capable of reaching over 400 km/h.
It all depends, a 2007 Ferrari would cost Â£256,000,000 (Two hundred and fifty six million British pounds)
OKAY there is no real cars in san Andreas or any gta, there only fake cars with fake names, you have to mod your game
With no power steering and accelerations of up to 6 g s, driving an F1 car is a huge physical feat. In addition the cars are so reliant on downforce, going slowly means that they lose most of their grip and the sheer power-weight ratio means the slightest mistake will send the car into a spin. F1 dr…ivers - even the ones dragging a car round to come in last are hugely talented. (MORE)
There are two F1 cars in Burnout Paradise, the Krieger Racing WTR and the Krieger PCPD special. You can obtain at least one in four ways:\n. \n1. Buy the Timesavers pack (not recommended!) - you will receive both F1 cars.\n. \n2. Win any 168 in Paradise City. This will release the Racing WTR onto …the streets for you to shut down and it to be delivered to your junkyards. Be warned - it's fast!\n. \n3. Once you have the Racing WTR, you will unlock its Burning Route - the hardest one in the game. It takes you around the North-East corner of the I-88 interstate. Once beaten, the Krieger PCPD Special will be delivered to your junkyards.\n. \n5. Purchase the Cops and Robbers pack to receive the PCPD Special.

go to Oreburgh city, talk to the old man standing by the tree, he should ask you for a blowjob, start to suck his penis, eventually he will battle you, win that and you can have sex with nurse joy dunno about the f1 car.
The 2010 and 2011 F1 cars have 8 cylinders in their engine. They are called V8 engines. They are naturally aspirated (no turbo charging) and they are 2.4 litres in size. They are limited to 19000 rpm in order to increase engine reliability and to avoid engine accidents during races.
Usually the speeds are not much higher than 330km/h 205mph, but the highest speed recorded is at the Italian Grand Prix 2004, AntÃ´nio Pizzonia of BMW WilliamsF1 team recorded a top speed of 369.9km/h 229mph.
The F1 racing car is similar to our road car in many aspects. It contains most of the parts that we can see in our road cars. The main difference being, the car is designed for optimum speed & performance. Some of the main parts of a F1 car are: Â· Engines Â· Transmission Â· Aerodynamics… - Wings Â· Steering wheel Â· Fuel Â· Tyres Â· Brakes There are over a thousand parts in a Formula 1 car, when counted individually.

about 244 mph it exceeds 230 mph because of the shape of the car making its aerodynamic skills awesome. For example a normal cars shape isn't very smooth making the speed limit less
F1 cars need friction for their brakes, if they didn't have friction on there brakes then it wouldn't be able to brake.
F, and whatever year it was made. For example, if it was 2007, Ferrari's F1 Car would be called the Ferrari F2007.
FÃ©dÃ©ration Internationale de l'Automobile Created the standard rules called Formula 1 in 1946 There were no standard rules for this racing before this time and it was call Grand Prix
the setup will affect the speed but the fastest done is 200 miles per hour/ 321 kilometres per hour
Improving the aerodynamics of the car is the main one. But even though there is a strict BHP limit, a good quality engine will considerably help speed. The quality of tyres.
To acheive maximum aerodynamic effect while staying inside certain design parameters decided upon by the FIA
F1 tyres are filled with Nitrogen since it is a more stable gas than air
A Typical F1 car in the 2010 season would be 4635 mm long, 1800 mm wide and 950 mm tall. The measurements in centimetres is: Length - 463.5 cm, Width - 180 cm, and height 95 cm. All the F1 cars in the grid from all the 12 teams are governed by the rules laid out by the F1 administration and follow t…hese sizes only. (MORE)
Surprisingly it's closed to the ordinary commercial petrol available but with a tightly controlled mix. It was not always so. Early Grand Prix cars ran on a fierce mixture of powerful chemicals and additives, often featuring large quantities of benzene, alcohol and aviation fuel. Indeed some early f…uels were so potent that the car's engine had to be disassembled and washed in ordinary petrol at the end of the race to prevent the mixture from corroding it! (MORE)
F1 cars have a reverse gear, but these are designed to satisfy the regulations rather than being of much practical use
There are different made; F1 cars are made by Ferrari, Renault, Mercedes, etc Some other teams have like tweak up engine, like the Cosworth engine for teams; HRT, Williams, Lotus.
Down force and how well your tires and engine are performing... i met a man in a Ferrari Enzo and asked him about formula 1..
The 2011 Mercedes GP car (MGP W02) cost around Â£5,000,000 pounds to build and around Â£5,500,000 to develop. The HRT and Marussia cars will cost a lot less and respectively, the Red Bull and McLaren a lot more.
No. The 2010 f1 season will have a brand new set of cars. Usually the rules and regulations change from one season to another. So, mid-way during the current season, teams start developing the car for the next season. So, the 2010 f1 car would've been in the making by mid 2009 and will debut once th…e 2010 season stats.

Yes. A F1 car has a clutch. It is not like a normal clutch that you see in a normal road car. In a normal car when you use the clutch, the engine power does not get transferred to the flywheel and propel the car whereas in a F1 car even when the clutch is used the power gets transferred to propel th…e car.

Around 720bhp. Restrictions have been placed on them over the years, such as limiting the engine rpm and engine size. They have been more powerful in the past, but these restrictions help to keep the sport relatively safer.
It depends how fast it's going to start off with and also which car it is. I reckon the answer would be VERY FAST no matter what the first two things are.
KERS stands for 'Kinetic Energy Recovery System' and is where energy produced from the rear axle when the driver applies the brakes is stored in a battery. The driver can then use this energy from the battery for an extra boost of power when attempting to overtake another driver or when defending fr…om being overtaken by another driver. Each car equipped with KERS may use this extra energy, approximately 80 horsepower and activated by pressing a button on the steering wheel, for a maximum of 6.6 seconds per lap. (MORE)
It is a kind of racing car , A lot of competitors are riding it when they are on a competition .
Constructing an f1 car is a very complicated process. It has a carbon fibre ultra lightweight body, powerful engine, suspensions, gears an transmissions, tires, steering wheel etc. The speed and performance of a f1 car directly depends on how efficiently these parts are assembled. That is why the… cars from one team are faster than the others (MORE)
Ballast is any heavy metal used in cars and boats to aid in stability and control. F1 cars are constructed well under the minimum weight (640 kg/1141 lbs including the driver and his helmet) so ballast is used to bring the car up to minimum weight requirements. Tungsten steel is generally used du…e to its high density. Since ballast can be placed anywhere in the car, it can be used to tweak the car to how the driver likes to drive or improve handling and tire wear, among other things. Placing ballast over the front wheels will aid the car by giving it more grip in tight corners. Ballast in the front endplate can help balance and ballast on the underbody keeps the car's center of gravity down. Teams will move ballast around in the car from race to race based on the circuit that is being driven. Where they place the ballast for a race in Monaco is different than where it will be for Spa or Monza. (MORE)
Nowhere. Polycarbonate is too weak. All F1 cars use resin treated carbon fibre, even in the chassis.
It usually catches on fire as seen at Monaco with one of the Marussia's. It can happen when the car is stationary for too long as they have no fans. Only air cooled radiators. The engineers can see the data so they may ask to save the engine before it damages itself but it really depends how quic…kly it does overheat. When the car overheats, damage can be done to fuel lines, exhaust systems and even the pistons. (MORE)
you need to modify Any of the cars and add txd and ddf file of F1 car to one of the car.Use vice city modder to do so.
Of course. They burn fuel and produce exhaust, much the same as any other car. Granted, the total distance run by F1 cars is insignificant compared to everyday passenger vehicles, plus they burn more thoroughly burning, much higher octane fuel, but they pollute, all the same.
it was quite scary because if you crashed with full speed it may blow up with a full speed ahead of you not good :(
